Minnesota a Hotbed of Labyrinth Activity

Several years ago, I attended a day-long labyrinth workshop at a northern Illinois church. The church had built a huge labyrinth in its rear lot, outlined by stones. It was incredibly fascinating to watch us pass each over and over again as up to a dozen people calmly trod this labyrinth (I have to refrain from using the word maze as a synonym because they are not quite interchangeable).

It represented to me how we keep meeting the same people or the same situations in our lives until we learn whatever the lesson is. That is it in a nutshell, labyrinth as facilitator of the message that karma awaits until your own raised consciousness releases you.

Also the shape of the classical, Chartres form of the labyrinth eerily repeats many of the features of a drawing of the brain. There are two halves, which are not exactly mirror images of each other. There is a wide middle section between the two halves, akin to the corpus callosum. And the entry echoes the shape of the brain stem.

I continued to walk labyrinths in my hometown of Milwaukee once I got home, altho at irregular intervals. When I felt stressed by intractable situations, I would go there to get centered again.

So I find myself drawn to read almost anything about labyrinths. Here is a new article about a woman who became so intrigued by a labyrinth workshop in the 1990s that she has been building more of them ever since. The article appeared in the October issue of Women’s Press and can be read online here: http://www.womenspress.com/main.asp?FromHome=1&TypeID=1&ArticleID=3707&SectionID=1&SubSectionID=233

A gift to my lovely readers —

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
