A Special Evening at the Labyrinth

What a wonderful way to celebrate the Summer Solstice. Our recent peace walk at the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth, held on Wednesday June 21, 2017,  was a good reminder of what it is like to gather as a community - walk the labyrinth and connect afterwards.  These photos help to capture the essence of this wonderful gathering. Thanks to all who were able to attend.

"When we walk the labyrinth with others, it becomes a tool for understanding relationships and community.... We may be at very different places on the path, but we all share it... We are all pilgrims on the same path, with the same hope of reaching the same centre." (Excerpt from "The Spirituality of Mazes and Labyrinths, G. MacQueen)
