Labyrinth Walks

Banchory River Festival – Bellfield Park, Banchory

Saturday 10th June 10am – 4pm

Come and find out more about Flourish, the year-round wellbeing project based in the Wild Garden at Woodend Barn.  You can watch the labyrinth being laid by me and fellow labyrinth facilitator, Janis Wemyss, from 10am onwards.  We will then guide you on how to walk the labyrinth for wellbeing from 12 – 4pm.

The Labyrinth

These sacred symbols hold a wealth of potential for both wellbeing and creativity.  I have used labyrinth walking as the basis for creative inspiration in wellbeing retreats and return repeatedly to the labyrinth in my own art work.

A walk in a labyrinth can help us to rejuvenate our sense of wellbeing by providing a space in which to slow down and just be.

This ancient symbol is over 4,000 years old but is often confused with the maze today.  The labyrinth, however, has no dead ends and no puzzle to solve.  It has one continuous pathway leading you into the centre, and the same pathway leads you out again.  The time you spend at the centre is time for you.

People walk labyrinths for a variety of reason, such as to:

  • relieve stress, reflect, meditate, problem solve;
  • mark a special occasion, find inspiration, celebrate, and so on.
