www.labyrinthkeepers.dionc.org
all events are open to the public & FREE! (unless otherwise noted)

You are invited on a modern-day pilgrimage at Holy Trinity’s outdoor labyrinth located adjacent to the sanctuary. There you will find a beautifully crafted eleven-circuit Chartres-style stone labyrinth with a fountain of flowing water in the center. Nearby, a replica of the Muiredach Celtic high cross bears witness to this sacred place. By walking the labyrinth alone or in a guided group, you may experience a kind of body prayer or walking meditation that quiets your mind, allowing your spirit to become more receptive to the still
small voice of God. The Holy Trinity labyrinth, located in a cloistered and well-lighted outdoor space, is available any time of day for individual walkers. Opportunities (as listed below) also abound for you to experience labyrinth walks facilitated by the Labyrinth Keepers.

Introduction to Walking Meditation Using the Labyrinth

      Saturday, March 22, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
What do you do in the labyrinth? If you have been curious about the labyrinth as a spiritual tool, this two-hour workshop will provide you with gentle instruction and support for beginning your labyrinth journey of transformation. If you are a veteran walker, you will benefit from this “mini retreat” in the context of a supportive community of labyrinth pilgrims walking and praying together. Meet first in Broome Hall, and then we will move as a group to the outdoor labyrinth.

Spring Equinox Walk

      Saturday, March 23, from 4 – 5:30
      LIVE MUSIC by DAVID HORTH

Welcome the arrival of spring by walking Holy Trinity’s outdoor labyrinth. You are invited to walk the path of the heart, in community, as we celebrate the coming of the Season of Light. A brief blessing at 4:00 will incorporate a vision of harmony and balance inspired by Native Americans’ gratitude for the abundance of the earth. Uninterrupted walking and music follows. In the case of inclement weather, the walk will be cancelled.

Holy Week Walking Meditation using the Labyrinth

Mon- Thurs, April 14-17, from 12:15-1:00 pm & Fri., Apr 18, 11 am – 12 pm
During this solemn and sacred week leading up to Easter, experience the labyrinth’s sacred pattern and sacred path. Walking the labyrinth helps you to quiet your mind, reconnect with your body, and see your life in the context of a path, a pilgrimage. As you symbolically make the walk with Christ to Jerusalem, use the labyrinth as a tool for silent reflection and prayer in the company of other pilgrims on the way. A Holy Week reflection facilitated by one of the labyrinth keepers and a time of blessing in the center of the labyrinth will precede each day’s walk. Attend any or all of these walks as your schedule allows. Bring a journal if desired.
