I walked my first Labyrinth . . .
. . . at St. Paul's Anglican Church, on Jervis Street, in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.
Then I attended the Pilgrimage and the Labyrinth Facilitator Training in San Francisco, at Grace Cathedral,
with The Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress, founder of Veriditas. There I met Robert Ferre, Master Labyrinth Builder, at his workshop on Labyrinth Building and walked the Labyrinth at Lands End (above photograph).
During the summer and fall of 2008, I began to experiment with the Labyrinth and "Liminal Space."
The process I developed to do this was drawing labyrinths in the sand, on the Foreshore of the Ocean, at places such as Spanish Banks and Sunset Beach.

- This Blog is for people looking for an outdoor labyrinth to walk in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. These Events are outdoors, on the foreshore of the ocean, so they are weather permitting events. Please check my Blog for Event day confirmation when weather might be an issue. Walking a Labyrinth is like accepting an invitation to pray, meditate, contemplate, dream, celebrate or play; a place to find inspiration, satisfy a curiosity, examine metaphor, mythology or simply, a place to explore liminal space: a 'betwixt and between' place. . . Labyrinths are drawn on the foreshore, betwixt the nearshore and the backshore, between the low and high water marks to present liminal space as a physical location. Labyrinths may also be drawn during liminal time: dusk or dawn and/or solstice or equinox. Victor W Turner has described liminality as "a fructile chaos, a storehouse of possibilities, not a random assemblage but a striving after new forms and structures, a gestation process." My vision is that when you walk a labyrinth on the foreshore, you will access liminal space. For information please email: email@example.com
