Liminal time in Liminal space: dusk on the Foreshore at Sunset Beach, English Bay, Vancouver BC today.
. . . a photograph of the labyrinth walk today.
Dusk, sundown or twilight; the time 'betwixt and between' day and night: Liminal time.
The Foreshore on Sunset Beach; 'betwixt and between' the Nearshore and Backshore of Sunset Beach: Liminal space.
Intriguing aspects of the walk: a white, long stem, rose found beside the labyrinth which was not present before the labyrinth was drawn; a heart and the word 'Joy' found painted on rocks beside the labyrinth; and, a delivery person appearing and asking us if we ordered a pizza.
Liminality: a place to choose the chaos of the unconsciousness over the control of explanations and answers.

- walking a labyrinth
- 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
