25 Feb Labyrinth Walk – Lent 2021
Contemplative practices promote experiential connecting with the holy – encounters with the divine that engage our hearts and bodies, going beyond words and concepts. The labyrinth is an ancient contemplative practice found in many Christian settings. Labyrinths come in all shapes and sizes, and can be found indoors, outdoors, and even online! This one was designed by WCC member JS Hedegard, who invites you to be open to the experience of slowly moving through the labyrinth, paying attention to your breathing, to your footsteps as they follow the path, and to the present moment and the experience itself. If you wish, you might set an intention before you begin the labyrinth, and then spend some time at the center reflecting deeper on your intention, or the experience itself. At the end of the walk, spend a final moment in reflection, offering gratitude for whatever you received from this practice. Walking this labyrinth will take about ten minutes.
