Labyrinth A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools. A labyrinth is not a maze. It has no dead ends or blind alleys. It has only one path. The way in is also the way out. A labyrinth involves intuition, creativity, and imagery. At its most basic level, a labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broader understanding of yourself and God. Our labyrinth is known as a seven circuit, Cretan labyrinth. The path is grass with Michigan Native wildflowers boarding the path. There are also a few benches on the edge of the labyrinth which can be used for rest, prayer and reflection.
