Labyrinth Event: World Labyrinth Day, Saturday, May 5, 2012 from 12 noon to 2 pm at Spanish Banks, Vancouver BC.
Designated as "Walk as One at 1," World Labyrinth Day is an initiative by The Labyrinth Society (http://labyrinthsociety.org/home) that encourages people to participate in "a rolling wave of peaceful energy as the world turns . . ." by walking a labyrinth at 1:00 pm in their local time zone.
World Labyrinth Day brings people from all over the planet together to celebrating the labyrinth as a symbol, a tool, a passion or a practice.
The Labyrinth Societies vision statement is: "to inspire possibilities and create connections through the labyrinth."
Please dress for the weather, remember sunscreen and wear shoes/boots that will enable you to wade through shallow tidal pools or water.

- 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
