Labyrinths and Liminality:
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. See my Profile for a full description of this Blog . . .

Labyrinth Event: Saturday, January 25, 2014 between 6 to 8 pm in English Bay, Vancouver BC.
Happy New Year Labyrinth Enthusiasts!
I will be drawing a labyrinth and hosting an event on January 25, 2014,
at English Bay in Vancouver: on the Vancouver Aquatic Centre side of the Burrard Bridge beside the False Creek Ferries - as shown in the above picture.
Cost: by donation
In the spirit of reciprocity and gratitude, please bring a gift to offer to the Divine in Nature such as flowers, coffee beans, etc
For the directions to this site, please see the previous post: Winter labyrinth location. (It may be dark out for this event so look for a circle of lights in the sand. They will surround the labyrinth just like those in the picture above)
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.
