Last night we celebrated an evening labyrinth under the growing moon at Gonzales Beach.  It was to acknowledge and celebrate the start of fall and the equinox.  The sand labyrinth was drawn by Maria Vanderham and Renee Lindstrom and decorated by those attending.  Shells, seaweed, drift wood large and small, candles, sand castle and personal items of meaning.

It was a playful and meaningful way to enjoy an evening and to acknowledge that it is the start of sowing seeds of intention for 2019.

  • Tip 1.  Look for a space on the beach that may have some interesting pieces of sea nature.  Why? – Find out more.
  • Tip 2.  Gather 16 small pieces from the beach that will become reminders to you in your labyrinth pattern.  Such as colored stones, shells, fun pieces of sea glass.
  • Tip 3.  Find a long stick to draw lines in the sand with.

  • Tip 4.  Once you have laid out the cross, four two-sided squares and planted your four trees, place the bits that you have gathered (in step two) at these points to become markers so these points stand out.

Once your labyrinth is drawn take a few moments to engage in exploring the beach you are on for interesting pieces to place around the outside of your outer ring of your sand labyrinth.  You may find some treasure in the small pieces of wood that have become rounded and can be placed along to match the rounded edges of your outer ring.

Remembering all the while she will reclaim the wood and sand and leave it as tho never played with fresh a canvas for the next beach visitor!

Choosing the wood pieces and placing around the outer ring became part of the meditation in this walk

You may even find some interesting pieces that can up along the outer ring.  If you are at the beach for the day you may want to dig in larger pieces of wood to create more of a sculpture around parts of the outside.

Drawing a 4 Seed Labyrinth

8 Steps for drawing a labyrinth in the sand:

  • 1.  Draw a cross in the center.
  • 2.  In each corner of  the crosses quadrants draw two sides of a square shape.
  • 3.  In the missing corner of each of the four boxes plant a tree.
  • 4.  Working left to right from the first line of the cross draw an arch from the the top of this line over to the first line of two-sided square.  This will be the center of the labyrinth when you walk into it therefore, you can be creative depending on your walking motivation.  In this one I used a heart.

  • 5.  Continue working left to right and arch the left side of two-sided box line over to the tree you planted earlier on the right side.
  • 6.  Working left to right arch from the tree you planted on the left side to the second line of the two-sided box.
  • 7.  Continue left to right arching lines as you join up the two sides, remembering the right side is always one lower in the pattern.

  • 8.  Your last left point will arch around and close the labyrinth leaving one opening on the left side of the first line of the cross you began with.
