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.

- 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: email@example.com
