Have you ever walked a labyrinth in times of stress, sickness or grief? If so, did it help you?


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/.

    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 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.

    Hi LysaSomwell,

    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.

    Hi Marilyn,

    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.
