All are invited to experience The Labyrinth – A Meditative Prayer Walk on Thursday afternoon, January 12, 2017. Following a J-term Aquinas Honors seminar in Contemplative Practices that will be using the labyrinth that morning, Professor Susan Stabile has graciously offered to make the Labyrinth available for anyone to experience. Come to the second floor of the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library between 11:30am and 2:30pm and she will help you get started on this meditative prayer walk and answer any of your questions.
Taken from the class handout: The Labyrinth is an ancient tool for prayer and meditation, consisting of a winding path that begins at the periphery always leading to a central space, and then out again by the same path. A Labyrinth is unlike a maze in that it has no blind alleys or dead ends. There are no tricks or short cuts. The path winds throughout and becomes a mirror for where we are in our lives. It touches our sorrows and releases our joys.
We hope you will consider taking time out of your day’s work and activities to learn more about the Labyrinth and experience this spiritual journey.
