For The Journey: Using Labyrinths to Walk with God
Hi I’m Aileen and I’m a labyrinth collector and cheerleader after finding labyrinths so helpful in my own life. I am looking forward to welcoming you to this quiet day. For the past 8 years I have been leading labyrinth retreats and installing labyrinths in places such as schools, town halls and churches. I am an experienced design and technology teacher, so teaching in a practical way is a passion of mine. Come and enjoy our workshop together, make your own labyrinth and enjoy using it in your everyday life after the session.
Labyrinths are a marvellous tool to aid meditation, study and prayer. At the “For The Journey” quiet day, you will be introduced to the origins and uses for labyrinths and experience a reflective guided labyrinth walk. There will be ample time to review your own journey with The Living Well garden labyrinth and also through response in prayer, art or journalling.
In the afternoon you can make your own air drying clay finger tracing labyrinth, which you can take home at the end of the day. There is a basic list of materials and equipment below to bring to make your labyrinth.
What to bring:
- A 1kg block of airdrying clay. You can get this in shops in the UK like The Works, The Range and Hobby Craft or order it online.
- A flat board (such as a kitchen chopping board) to make and dry your labyrinth on, which is a bit bigger that A4
- Cling film or other plastic sheet material so the clay does not stick to the board
- A rolling pin
- A knife or two for cutting
- a sharp pencil or kebab stick
- a round ended pen
Suggested minimum donation £25, lunch and refreshments are included.
