Summer Solstice Labyrinth 'walk:' Sunday June 21, 2015 from 3:30 to 5:30 at Spanish Banks, Vancouver BC Canada.
Solstice is an astronomical event
It is a time or day 'betwixt and between' spring and summer
Thus it is a liminal time or day
So come to the beach and walk a labyrinth
Betwixt and between the high and low water marks
Experience Liminal time:
A ’storehouse of . . . (your) . . . possibilities’ are waiting for you.
For directions to the site, cut and paste the following link into your browser:
In the spirit of reciprocity and gratitude, please bring a gift to offer to the Sacred in Nature such as flowers, coffee beans, etc. These will be used to create a mandala in the centre of the labyrinth
1. You may need to cross shallow tide pools to arrive at the labyrinth location, so please come prepared and dress for the weather.
2. If rain might be in the forecast the day of this event, please check back for confirmation of the walk.
If you have any questions, please email me at:
P.S. I don't always check my email the morning of an event so consider contacting me a day or two before the 'walk.'

- 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
