The labyrinth is an ancient pattern found in many cultures around the world. DU’s labyrinth is based on the 11-circuit labyrinth of Chartres Cathedral in France. The labyrinth is not a maze. There are no tricks to it and no dead ends. It has a single circuitous path that winds into the center. It is a path of prayer, a walking meditation, a crucible of change, a watering hole for the spirit and a mirror of the soul. By walking the labyrinth we are rediscovering a long-forgotten mystical tradition that is insisting to be reborn. There are three stages of the walk: (1) Purging and Release ~ A releasing, a letting go of the details of your life. (2) Illumination and Receiving ~ When you reach the center, stay there as long as you like. It is a place of meditation and prayer. (3) Union and Returning ~ As you leave, following the same path out of the center as you came in, you enter the third stage, which is joining God, your Higher Power, or the healing forces at work in the world.
