A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world in the search of our divine feminine and sacred self. The Labyrinth Society talks about Labyrinths as Sacred Geometry and how the act of walking back and forth aids one in achieving resonance. "Sacred geometry is the act of studying the divine act of creation and then using that knowledge to create in the same way. By studying nature, we find that the basic building blocks of creation are geometric." This symbol resonates more for me than any circle journey.
The labyrinth has been able to offer comfort, healing, spiritual growth, and inner and outer peace to those that walk the twisting path. Many believe that whether one practices a specific religion or is just spiritual, the labyrinth can offer spiritual and inner growth that can add to the healing of the world. Phil Cousineau agrees, “As she covers the ground outwardly, so she advances fresh interpretations of herself inwardly.”
