Have you ever walked a labyrinth path?
Why do folks walk their path? A labyrinth is a winding pattern whose single path leads to a central core. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth holds no false paths or dead ends. It is not a puzzle. Walking in a labyrinth, one is always certain of being on the right path.
What is the purpose? Answers vary: a relaxation technique, a path of prayer. It represents an opportunity to listen deeply, to walk deliberately, yet without conscious thought. A labyrinth is a meditation tool/technique for people who are unable to sit still, and/or unable to stop thinking. It is a time for reflection.
Allied Gardens/Benjamin Library in San Diego, walked a labyrinth path today while applying Zentangle patterns.
One of the students brought her two young children to class. I was a little concerned because this class was a two hour class and lots of new tangles. Typically, kids classes are one hour with larger areas to tangle. I gotta give it to the kids. They came in after class started so I didn't get their ages. I'd guess they were 6 and 8/9? They caught up with us and finished. The first piece below is the girl's. She did fantastic. Her younger brother also finished the two hour class. Not a peep, just tangled. Wow. Impressed.
