I thought of the Camino that has been walked by thousands and thousands of pilgrims for thousands of years, and felt how deeply sacred this path is...for it has received, absorbed and transmuted so much pain, struggle, joy, devotion from its pilgrims. The more a path is walked, the more holy and sacred it becomes. I am reminded of the quote from Peter Dawkins:
We walk a sacred path to experience the sacred.
Our footprints of love serve to transform a simple path
into a well-walked pathway of light.
Each Full and Dark Moon Candlelight Labyrinth Walk and gathering has been a profoundly enriching experience. Also, the experience seems to be deepening with each walk. It is a powerful experience to hold the circle for each woman as she walks the labyrinth, and it is just as powerful to walk the labyrinth while being held in the sacred circle of both the women and labyrinth itself. The simple practice gives each of us an opportunity to pause, breathe, connect with our core selves and each other, and to cultivate an awareness and space within ourselves that we then get to take home and back into our lives.
I invite you to come and join us..it is a powerful, magical experience that deeply nourishes our bodies and souls. The next walk will be at the Full Moon on January 15th at 5pm. Our new year will be underway and this will give you a moment to pause, walk in gratitude for all that is unfolding and receive the light from both the Full Moon and the light that is cultivated under the labyrinth with every walk. This light is truly transformational and healing.
