Walking the Labyrinth
The labyrinth is an ancient meditative practice. Many people find that the simple movement of walking the labyrinth’s curving paths allows their minds to become more peaceful and open to the Spirit.
The canvas labyrinth is placed in the Nave of the Cathedral for public walks each week from Monday through 3 p.m. on Friday. It is an eleven-circuit labyrinth based on the one in Chartes Cathedral in France. The path winds through the four quadrants of a circle toward the center, which is a six-petaled rosette, a traditional symbol of the Virgin Mary. Trinity’s Labyrinth was dedicated June 9, 1996, and has been used by countless walkers of all ages and faith traditions.
For those who may find walking the labyrinth difficult, as well as for those who simply want to experience the labyrinth in a different way, Trinity has available a wooden finger labyrinth.
