A conflict resolution Labyrinth walk? Yes of course! Shared a creative afternoon yesterday exploring why early communities (pre-religion) would have walked a labyrinth. A hot question on the minds of the participants as the day started and answered only after a guided and experiential journey of labyrinth patterns. An answer was not given in the traditional teaching way, but integrated through a personal exploration, in the safety of a group. An experience that started with strangers (disconnected from each other) and ended in a calm, centered, meaningful and grounded group connection. As the underlying intention was to answer this community question they had a growing realization of the power of walking this pattern before meetings. The purpose: to have the participants walk it together prior to the business meeting to reintegrate community and expand acceptance of each others differences through the pattern of movement. This is what I describe as Green Behavior and love the implications. Can you imagine different outcomes with exploring labyrinth walks for conflict resolution?
