Labyrinth Event: Sunday February 12, 2012 from 2:30 to 4:00 pm at Kitsilano Beach, Vancouver BC.
The idea that we are separate from Nature and the ocean is an illusion.
Walking a labyrinth on the foreshore transports us away from our ordinary lives and makes it possible to become conscious how interconnected we are with the ocean.
I will be drawing a labyrinth, on Sunday February 12, 2012, for my friend Marten Sims. He is holding an Art Exhibit and Workshop Series that explores the sea around and inside us.
The exhibition: "Sea Inside"
The dates: February 11th to 19th.
The location is: Concourse Gallery, Emily Carr University
1399 Johnston Street, Granville Island
Please see his site:
An opening prayer for this Labyrinth Event will be performed by Veronica Wilson.
From the corner of the 2100 block of Cornwall Avenue, where there is a Starbucks, walk across the street to the telephone booth. Then walk down the path toward the water, over to the front of Boathouse Restaurant and past the shower toward the water. The labyrinth will be beside the water.

- 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
