Solstice Labyrinth: Monday June 21 from 9 am to 12 noon









These pictures are of the location I use to draw on at Spanish Banks. Below are the directions to my location.

From the Spanish Banks East Cafe, walk to the circular patio overlooking the beach. Once there, look to your left, in the distance, for a white sign that warns of the ‘Rocks’ that are located there. Walk from the patio, down onto the beach and over to the ‘Rocks’ sign. Once you reach the sign, look for a path. Follow the path to the labyrinth.

Solstice occurs about 11:30 and, by that time, the tide will probably be high enough that there will be tide pools to walk through on the way back to the beach.

Solstice can be considered a liminal 'time' in nature because at the solstices, the Sun stands still in declination and the apparent movement of the Sun's path north or south comes to a stop before reversing direction.

About Me

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: walkingalabyrinth@gmail.com
