Visit Chautauqua Park every Friday until Aug. 14 for a self-guided spiritual walk, weather permitting.

The Christian life can be described as a journey with God, a journey in which we can grow closer in our relationship with God, and, in turn, grow closer to others. With origins that date back more than 4,000 years, the labyrinth is based on sacred geometry, with the most famous one built in the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Chartres, France. Lakeside has a portable labyrinth that will be unfolded at scheduled times for Lakesiders to use this summer.

The labyrinth is a metaphor for life. People walk it as a tool to enhance prayer, contemplation and meditation. There’s no one way to walk the labyrinth. You need to stay on the path with all its turns. These turns lead to balancing the two hemispheres of the brain, resulting in physical and emotional healing, thus wellness. Following the paths causes us to reach the center. Walking the labyrinth is more about the journey than the destination, about being rather than doing, integrating body and mind, psyche and spirit, into one harmonious whole.

The labyrinth is a sacred space, which, by definition, is where two worlds flow into each other, the visible and the invisible. The finite world touches the infinite. Psyche and soul are reunited, so also are the imagination and the logical mind. Walking the labyrinth is a body prayer. Honoring your body’s temple helps open your intuitive channels, leading to wellness.
