What is a labyrinth? The pattern of the labyrinth is arguably one of the oldest pattern in the world. From America to India, from Scandinavia to Africa we can find it’s mysterious coils inscribed in rock, woven in baskets, cut into turf on village greens or laid in finest marble on Cathedral floors. No one knows where it originated. Legend tells us of Theseus slaying the Minotaur who inhabited a Cretean Labyrinth.


Labyrinth – a symbol of life’s journey.
Leave the familiar and progress into the unknown. Holding on to the faith as Theseus held fast to Ariadne’s thread  - we go closer to the center , to the center of mystery.

From the place where        
there is nowhere else to go,
I call you.

From that place where,
after all the twists and turns,
there is no way forward.

A dead –end.

The centre of the labyrinth.

Where to be
Is to be simultaneously
At the end and the beginning.

Come to me.
Explore my mystery.

Walking the Labyrinth
