Labyrinth

Terra Studios Labyrinth:  If you have not experienced the peace and stillness evoked by walking a Labyrinth, Terra is a wonderful place to start. Those already familiar with the experience will appreciate the beauty of our classical 7-channel outdoor labyrinth, constructed of standing slabs of Wedington Limestone.

What is a Labyrinth?  The Labyrinth Society gives us this definition: “A labyrinth is a single path (or unicursal tool) for personal, psychological and spiritual transformation.” Full-sized, walk-able Labyrinths provide a non-denominational spiritual path for meditative reflection.

Walking the winding, twisting folds allows a tranquil state to emerge, where we can release our typical straight-line directional orientation and allow our minds to wander, while continually proceeding towards an unmoving center. Many see this as a metaphor for introspection and centering, and a concrete tool useful in seeking stillness, gratitude or transformation.

Traditionally labyrinths have been used for both personal and group “walking prayer” or meditation and our Labyrinth is a popular destination for church groups.

Recently, science has validated the use of labyrinths for a number of therapeutic uses including PTSD and stroke recovery. Across the U.S. many medical facilities, including VA hospitals, are implementing and studying labyrinths.  It is thought that as you walk and turn right and left repeatedly, your focus shifts back and forth, stimulating and enhancing communication between the two hemispheres of the brain.
