Labyrinth event: Winter Solstice Labyrinth, today, Wednesday December 21, 2011 from 8:30 to 10 pm at Sunset Beach, English Bay Vancouver.


Happy Winter Solstice Decemeber 2011!



I am writing to confirm that this event will proceed as scheduled tonight.

Walking a labyrinth on Winter Solstice allows us to find stillness and the connection to our personal pilgrimage. Our Spiritual eye can then guide us through the winter months.

Directions to the labyrinth location(pictures of the location are below):
Sunset Beach is on English Bay in Vancouver and is close to the corner of Beach Avenue and Bute Street. Find the Beach Cafe, then make your way to the walking path in front of the Beach Cafe, next to the beach. 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, behind the sign . . . reminder to dress for the weather.


There is no cost to attend this event.

The tide is low late at night or too early in the morning . . .

The tide is low late at night or too early in the morning during this time of the year for there to be enough light to draw and walk, on the foreshore, at Spanish Banks in Vancouver. I may, however, draw some evening at Sunset Beach in English Bay. That beach is lit with light from False Creek and the surrounding buildings, so please check back through out the winter or email me:

Peace.

Equinox Labyrinth Event: Saturday September 24, 2011 from 9 to 11 am at Spanish Banks, Vancouver.


The forecast for tomorrow is splendid. So this event will occur as scheduled. 

Equinox is a transitional time of the year as we pass from summer into fall.  This change of season may be used as a metaphor for our life as we redesign, reshape or remodel our lives when our world shifts. Walking a labyrinth with the intention of reorganizing our priorities can grant our spirit permission to unearth a new path.

Happy Fall Equinox.

Sounding Between Land and Sea: Sunday, July 17th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at Spanish Banks, Vancouver, British Columbia.




Come and join us as we find ways for our own vocal sounds to harmonize with the sounds and landscapes around us.
At Spanish Banks we look to the mountains, the city, the forest and the sea for communication and inspiration. Sounding is a great way to send healing to the world’s trouble spots, while giving to ourselves at the same time. No singing experience necessary — just bring the voice you have!

This event will be facilitated by Kira Van Deusen. She will start the event, with an introduction, around 1:15.

You can find out more about Kira by going to her web page:

Happy World Wide Labyrinth Day!




Good morning. I will be drawing a labyrinth at Spanish Banks in Vancouver later this morning. Walking will start by 1:00 pm. Dress for the weather and crossing shallow tide pools.

Friday, May 6, 2011

World Wide Labyrinth Day: May 7, 2011 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

I will be holding this event tomorrow rain or shine at Spanish Banks in Vancouver BC,  so dress for the weather and come 'walk.'

Labyrinth event: Celebrate World Wide Labyrinth Day - May 7, 2011 from 1 to 4 pm at Spanish Banks, Vancouver, BC, Canada.


World Wide Labyrinth Day is organized by The Labyrinth Society (TLS) to celebrate the labyrinth as "a symbol, a tool, a passion or a practice."

The genesis of the labyrinth remains somewhat of a mystery. The earliest recovered labyrinth is etched onto a clay tablet and was found in Pylos. Appearing in many cultures, faiths and regions of the world, the labyrinth has been use by people for diverse purposes throughout history.

Designated as "Walk as One at 1" by TLS, this event aspires to create "a rolling wave of peaceful energy" that circles the earth by virtue of people walking a labyrinth at 1:00pm in their timezone.


 Connect with others, around the world and at Spanish Banks in Vancouver, on May 7, 2011 and walk for peace in the world and people living in harmony with nature.

Exploring liminal space . . .




Exploring liminal space is like entering a door betwixt the concrete and abstract, the permanent and timeless or the theory and practice of art; between the real and surreal, the rigid and elastic or the waking and dreaming life, a place where you can change your perception of 'self,' 'others,' et cetera.

March Equinox Labyrinth Event: Sunday March 20, 2011 at Spanish Banks from 1 to 3 pm - weather permitting.

This event will occur minutes before the March 20th Equinox. Many cultures and religions have celebrated equinox as a time of rebirth with observed holidays and festivals.

Equinox has the property of liminal time: that is, it is betwixt or between winter and spring. Liminal time, like liminal space, is "characterized by ambiguity, openness and indeterminacy where limits in thought, self-understanding and behaviour can be challenged and new insights considered."

Walking a labyrinth on equinox may, therefore, be a time to reflect on the past and celebrate a birth of new thoughts, insights, behaviours and deeper self-understanding.

For directions to the labyrinth search this Blog for the posting:

**This event is an opportunity to pray for the people of Japan**


Remember appropriate foot wear to wade through tide pools.

Walking a labyrinth on the foreshore of a beach presents an individual with a dynamic liminal space for an active form of meditation.




Walking a labyrinth is an active form of meditation.
The foreshore of the beach, a dynamic place, is a liminal space: a place 'betwixt' the low and high tide water marks and 'between' the backshore and the nearshore.

Labyrinth Event: Sunday March 6, 2011 at Spanish Banks, Vancouver BC from 1 to 3 pm - weather permitting.


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. . . . 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 the labyrinth on the foreshore of Spanish Banks, during low tide, you might access liminality or liminal space.

For directions to the labyrinth, please see the Blog entry "Directions to the Spanish Banks Labyrinth location" from Tuesday, February 1, 2011.

Please check back on March 6th, 2011 for confirmation of this event.

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."
