Labyrinths & Labyrinthing

including ancient labyrinth origins, and uses today for visualisation and clarity ... next session Sunday 10th April 2022

about this afternoon session ...


Labyrinths have been created and used by humans for, it seems, at least 15,000 years. Ever since humans learned the craft of converting calibrations into maths and geometry. This seems to have a Babyonian origin. But why were humans motivated to create them?

During this Sunday Session we will explore the wonder of these ancient labyrinths. This includes exploring the symbolism of the best known labyrinth, with the Minotaur in Knossos, Crete. Also included will be the origin of the Labyrinth names, which is something very different to those spiral of circles. I will also question why water and milk pouring on small stone labyrinths became tradition.

Of course, I will introduce you to our Labyrinth Gardens here at Carrowcrory, how labyrinths are used for inspiration, motivation, divinity connection, storytelling, mindfulness, and mental health therapy today.

Also some discussion about our intrusion of  this human calibrated geometry onto landscapes, and even dare to call it 'sacred'. So, how can Labyrinths function as part of the whole of nature? 

Please join in and share your thoughts and your practices of and with Labyrinths.
