Labyrinth Event: Today, Monday, November 29, 2010 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, Sunset Beach, English Bay - directions.
Environment Canada is predicting a wet day today, however, I have posted these photographs to clarify the location of the labyrinth if the forecast is wrong.
The general location to find is 1204 Beach Avenue, as noted in the Blog entry of Tuesday, October 26, 2010.
When you are in front of the Beach Cafe and facing the water, the Burrard Street Bridge will be on your left. Walk toward the bridge and the fenced area of the parking lot until you reach the light, on your left, and the 'No Dogs Permitted on Beach' sign, on your right. The labyrinth will be on the beach where the land slopes to the water, beyond the sign.
I will post a Blog entry at 5 pm today confirming or cancelling this event.

Labyrinth Event: Monday, November 29, 2010 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, Sunset Beach, English Bay, Vancouver British Columbia.
For directions, please see the Blog entry dated Tuesday, October 26, 2010; however, note the slight change in location from that entry. Specifically, when you are in front of the Beach Cafe, on the walking path and facing the water, walk to your left toward the Burrard Street Bridge. Before you reach the water taxi launch, walk to the waters edge. The labyrinth will be located where the beach slopes to the water, facing the Burrard Street Bridge.
Note the location in the above photograph: click on the picture to increase the size for a better view. And, because the event will happen after sunset, a flashing bicycle light will be located next to the labyrinth to mark the location.
As always, this is a weather dependent event. So please check back on Monday for event confirmation.

- 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
