I am taking some time to reflect on a very different kind of year at the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth. As of early March 2020 it became apparent that our planned schedule of community events needed to be put on indefinite hold. But the "labyrinth keeper" in me realized there was still something that I could do. Following is a diary of the year...
CARLETON PLACE LABYRINTH IN THE MEDIA
Thankful for these posts that helped to continue building awareness of our lovely labyrinth:
April 8 - Garden tending. For most of April I would go to the labyrinth - and tend one garden at a time; trimming the grasses - and feeling better for being there - working away quietly and meditatively.
April 18 - Labyrinth opens. Message of encouragement at the start of this year's journal.
April 29 - Stones of encouragement left in the labyrinth mailbox.
May 2 - Solo World Labyrinth Day walk - feeling centered and grounded.
June 7 Thought for today's labyrinth walk... dawdle and walk aimlessly - inspired by Thich Nhat Hahn
July 7 Picnic and barefoot labyrinth walk
2020 Journal Entries... So good to know people are finding solace in walking the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth during these challenging times!
In the Fall we reopened - it was good to be able to offer several community events.
October 4 - St. Francis Day walk with your companion animals!
While this year has been challenging on many levels, tending and walking the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth has kept me grounded and encouraged me to follow my intuition and simply trust the path! A very good reminder that things are often "solved by walking"... See you at the Labyrinth :)
