The Labyrinth at LEAF is a gift from the Carrie T. Watson Garden Club. Dedicated in Spring 2005, the gift commemorates the garden club’s 80th anniversary.
Description of a Labyrinth
A labyrinth is the design formed by a meandering, unicursal path as it folds back and forth from an outer edge to its own center. Often mistaken for a maze that intentionally tests one’s memory and patience with dead ends and opportunities for wrong turns, the labyrinth has quite a different effect on its visitor. Free of obstacles and barriers, it is a tool for prayer, meditation and problem solving to those who walk at a leisurely pace.
Walking the Labyrinth
Pause and wait at the entrance. Become quiet and centered. Begin to walk at whatever pace is comfortable for you. Pass or be passed by others walking the labyrinth by briefly stepping off then returning to your chosen path. Enjoy the peace and reflection within.
