Opening the Labyrinth

On Monday April 10th, we gathered at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum from 7 to 8 pm, to open the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth for the 2017 season.  Thank you so much to everyone that joined us that evening - the positive energy was palpable and so inspiring!

We were pleased to offer a viewing of "Labyrinth Journeys" a short documentary which presents the stories of individuals who use the labyrinth as a tool for healing, rehabilitation, stress reduction, meditation, spiritual awareness and playful exploration.
