Our Labyrinth

Background

Labyrinths as spiritual tools within the Christian tradition date back to at least the fourth century, and were in considerable use by the Franco-Christian community in the late 12th century. Today, in the 21st century, labyrinths are, once again, in wide use by Christians across North America, Europe, portions of Africa and in other global communities. It is used in a variety of ways for a variety of purposes, from therapeutic to pietistic, pragmatic to mystical and intuitive. The labyrinth can be a metaphor for our spiritual journey. As a spiritual practice walking the labyrinth offers us a powerful tool with which to develop greater intimacy with God, and also one's self, as well as the wider human community.
