Labyrinth Event: 'Sounding,' Sunday August 18, 2013 at Spanish Banks, Vancouver from 11am to 1 pm.


Cost: by donation

Come and join us as we find ways for our own vocal sounds to harmonize with the sound 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 out into the world 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.

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




If you like - and in the spirit of reciprocity - you can bring something to leave in the labyrinth as an offering. It should be something that will return easily to the elements. Shells, rocks and leaves can all be found nearby. Don't worry if you forget, there will be items at the event you can use.

Dress for the weather and to cross shallow tide pools.

FOUR DAY LABYRINTH EVENT IN PORTLAND


Finding Center: Using the Labyrinth for Integration and Balance is the theme of a four day labyrinth event March 8-11.  Sponsored by the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral Labyrinth Guild and held at the cathedral, three varied programs feature labyrinth expert and master teacher Jo Ann Mast of Boulder, Colorado.  

On Friday, March 8th at 7:30 p.m. Mast will present a public lecture discussing current neuroscientific research revealing a host of positive brain and nervous system changes such as the balancing effect meditative labyrinth walking has on the human nervous system.  Admission to the lecture is $10.

Mast will facilitate an experiential workshop using body movement and various labyrinth patterns to achieve personal centering and balance on Saturday, March 9th from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.   Registration is required for the Saturday workshop, which includes lunch.  For registration and additional information refer to veriditas.org/calendar.


An opportunity for further engagement with the labyrinth will be presented in an advanced two day training for those wishing to become labyrinth facilitators. The training will be held on Sunday, March 10th from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Monday, March 11th  from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The workshop will prepare participants to introduce others to the labyrinth and to facilitate labyrinth events in a multitude of settings. Tuition for this event includes refreshments and meals. To register, see www.veriditas.org/calendar.

Guest presenter Jo Ann Mast is associated with Veriditas, a non-profit labyrinth organization founded by the Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress. The mission of Veriditas is to connect people to the labyrinth through workshops, retreats and pilgrimages.  Mast is the first Veriditas master teacher certified to teach the organization’s exclusive educational programs. Her activities include lectures and consultations with faith communities, universities, seminaries, hospitals, and community organizations of all kinds in both the U.S. and Canada.   

Labyrinth walking at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral began in early 1997 when a canvas labyrinth was acquired. Two years later the current inlaid labyrinth of native woods was installed in the floor of Kempton Hall.  It is one of a handful of inlaid wood labyrinths in the world.

Labyrinth Event: Saturday January 19, 2013 in English Bay, Vancouver BC from 6:00 pm to 8:00pm.




Happy New Year Labyrinth enthusiasts!

This labyrinth event is, again, going to be held in the evening because the tide is low at that time of the day. Fortunately, however, the beach is well lit by the city lights. Like the picture above, I will be outlining the labyrinth with LED lights so it will be visible from a distance and hopefully will make it easier to find.

Cost: by donation
Please dress for the weather.

Life is insecurity.
Each moment is a move into more and more insecurity.
It is a gamble.
One never knows what is going to happen.
And it is beautiful that one never knows.
If it was predictable, life would not be worth living.
If everything was as you would like it to be, and everything was certain, you would not be a man at all, you would be a machine.

Osho

About Me

My photo
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: walkingalabyrinth@gmail.com
