Fostering a Contemplative Stance: The Spirituality of the Labyrinth — May 2

A labyrinth is a metaphor for a journey to the center of our deepest self – the sacred place within each of us where the Spirit dwells. Walking the labyrinth facilitates embracement of the “sacrament of the present moment.”

The labyrinth in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Chartres, France, has been a pilgrim destination since the 13th century. This is an artist sketch of the labyrinth in 1790.

In the words of Jean-Pierre De Caussade, “The Sacrament (of the present moment) and the reason it should be ranked among the classics of Christian devotion is its ability simply and profoundly to lead us to God.”

Saturday, May 2
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Register by April 27
Suggested donation: $20 (includes lunch)

Join us for a workshop focused on the labyrinth as a powerful tool to enhance contemplative prayer. This will include an opportunity to walk our beautiful labyrinth that overlooks our lake in a setting that sings of the magnificence of our Creator.

May 2 is World Labyrinth Day. We will walk the labyrinth at 1 p.m. as a prayer for peace in solidarity with our sisters and brothers throughout the world.

Presented by Kathy Keary, spiritual director
