Finding Peace Amidst the Noise – Phoenix, AZ

In these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever that we find peace within ourselves.  Meditation, prayer, stillness…the labyrinth is a place in which we can practice them all.   The labyrinth is also a giant metaphor – how you walk it is symbolic of how you “walk” through your life.

What could fall away if you practiced being more intentional?

What could you welcome into your life if you slowed down your pace?

How would you be different in your community as a result?

Join us for a workshop to explore these questions and more!    Using the labyrinth, we’ll explore the Hero’s Journey (think: Joseph Campbell), setting off into the unknown, letting go, experiencing twists and turns, receiving what we most need, and returning to our communities, changed for having set out on the path.

During the workshop, you will

  • Learn more about labyrinths – where to find them, and how to use them as a tool for meditation and contemplation.
  • Walk in community – use the body as a moving prayer, still the mind, and experience the impact of a committed group setting out on a shared expereince.
  • Feel the power of the Three R’s:  Release, Receive and Return – you’ll be guided through a physical as well as symbolic process that can become an intentional, daily ritual whether walking a labyrinth or just walking through your day.
  • Create a Labyrinth Prayer Piece – similar in purpose to a mala or rosary, it’s a tangible representation of the stages of a labyrinth journey (and life’s) to support your contemplative practice:

A sample – yours will be unique!

Learn the meaning and metaphysical properties of various stones, along with the spiritual healing lore.

Be led through a personally intuitive process in which you’ll choose the perfect stones for your piece.

Learn to design and assemble your Prayer Piece, creating a meaningful piece unique to your personal journey in bringing forth all you’re meant to create in the world.

Leave with a talisman that will forever anchor you to your labyrinth experience.
