A Beautiful Evening

We were so blessed to have perfect weather once again as we walked and found inner peace on the labyrinth on Thursday June 16th. Following are some photos and comments that truly help to capture the feeling of the evening. It was wonderful as well - to introduce the labyrinth to many people who have never had the experience before!

Smudging to clear the labyrinth and set our intentions for the walk.
Gathering to listen to short talk about the history of the labyrinth and walking tips.

Taking time to pause and receive all we need at the centre.
After the walk we collaboratively created a collage with a "finding inner peace" theme.
The completed collage - full of inspirational messages.
I'd like to thank you and Debby for asking the choir to be part of the event. Some of the singers mentioned to me that they had been very moved while singing and watching those walking the labyrinth.  I loved being able to hear your short talk, sing, then walk the labyrinth. The turnout of walkers and singers was fabulous. The weather was magnificent. 

We should make it an annual event. There are no shortage of songs about peace. And we need to sing them whenever possible!
