Hospitals, churches, parks and other community organizations are building labyrinths that the general public may walk. Do you know of any labyrinths near you? Have you walked any for fun or as a way of dealing with stress? Please share your experience if you feel comfortable doing so. Did you know there is a World Wide Labyrinth Locator that lists many, though not all, labyrinths around the world? It can be accessed at: http://labyrinthlocator.com/.

Thanks for leaving such a detailed comment. Some labyrinths are made of tall grasses or shrubs and some are surrounded by gardens. It sounds like you would need that kind of privacy. I usually look down at the path and just focus on my thoughts.
Wow! Thanks for so vividly sharing your "Quest for Identity" community college experience that, in essence, created a labyrinth in your mind. Quite fascinating.
Thanks for leaving an answer. FYI: there is an outdoor labyrinth in Jubilee Farm, 6760 Old Jacksonville Rd., New Berlin, Illinois (3.8 mi. west of Veteran's Parkway in Springfield. See more info at:
Whatever helps reduce stress is a good thing and you are wise to do whatever works for you! Thanks for taking time to answer the question and leave a comment about your personal experience with labyrinths--sounds like you were in a maze.
The important thing is to know yourself, and the types of things that bring you peace in our stress filled world. I think it's great you sit in nature. Sitting alone, or walking in nature is one of my own favorite stress relievers.
