Labyrinths

The origins of  the labyrinth pattern is unknown.  The pattern is an archetypal form that is found around the world and they date back 4000 to 5000 years.  Only now is acceptance of using this pattern of movement growing as we  discover the  benefits which includes  improved well-being, increased connection in  reflection, meditation, realignment  and self  knowledge.  These benefits have been experienced from walking, drawing or tracing a finger labyrinths.

Two popular designs are the Classical or 7 Circuit and the 11 Circuit Labyrinths.

The 11 circuit labyrinth is a more elaborate  patter and is effective for  deepening personal reflections and contemplation.  The pattern supports balancing the right and left sides of the brain and energy centers of the body.  It can support quieting the mind for clearer insights and inner guidance.  You may choose to walk an 11 circuit labyrinth when you are making personal change, resolving conflict, making important decision in relationships or at work.
