Walk for World Labyrinth Day

Walk for World Labyrinth Day at the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth 1:00 pm. May 5th 2012
It's spring and time to walk the labyrinth again!

Join us on Saturday May 5th for our first event of 2012 as we "Walk as One at 1" in celebration of World Labyrinth Day. The newly built stone-bordered pathway of the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth is situated in a peaceful garden setting behind the Carleton Place & Beckwith Heritage Museum at the corner of George and Baines Streets.

World Labyrinth Day, declared in 1998 by the international organization The Labyrinth Society, brings people together globally to recognize the labyrinth as a symbol, a tool, a passion, or a practice. This will be the fourth World Labyrinth Day walk for the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth, as we join enthusiasts from around the globe who will walk their local labyrinth at 1:00 pm in their local time zones.

If you are a labyrinth enthusiast, or you are new to the labyrinth experience, this walk will be the perfect introduction for you. Labyrinths offer a special place in a community for people to come together for significant celebrations, to resolve a problem, to enjoy a meditative walk, or to simply take time out of a busy day.

Completed last year, the labyrinth construction was made possible by the Town of Carleton Place, individual, business & community sponsors, and a Trillium Foundation grant. Garden benches and a wheelchair accessible contemplation ring encircle the labyrinth for those who wish to stay awhile and enjoy the natural setting of the newly declared "Labyrinth Park".

Members of the volunteer Labyrinth Committee will also be there - we invite you to experience the good feeling walking a labyrinth can make in your life!
