Commune With YOUR Higher Power
Walk one of the largest outdoor Labyrinths in Ohio at Unity Spiritual Center
23855 Detroit Road (One block west of Clague Road.)
Unity’s Labyrinth is based on the design of the world famous labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France.
The Labyrinth is not a maze. There are no tricks to it and no dead ends. It has a single circuitous path that winds into the center. The person walking it uses the same path to return and the entrance then becomes the exit. The path is in full view, which allows a person to be quiet and focus internally. Generally there are three stages to the walk: releasing on the way in, receiving in the center and returning; that is, taking back out to the world that which you have received.
NO REGISTRATION OR APPOINTMENT NECESSARY!
Walk When You Feel Called to Walk
Most Labyrinths of the world are open to all people as a non-denominational, cross-cultural tool of well-being.
They can be found in medical centers, parks, churches, schools, prisons, memorial parks, and retreat centers as well as people’s backyards.
The Labyrinth is an ancient pattern found in many cultures around the world. Labyrinth designs were found on pottery, tablets, and tiles date back as far as 4000 years. Many patterns are based on spirals from nature. In Native American culture it is called the Medicine Wheel and Man in the Maze. The Celts described it as the Never Ending Circle. It is also called the Kabala in mystical Judaism.
One feature they all share is that they have one path that winds in a circuitous way to the center.
Labyrinths are currently being used worldwide as
a way to quiet the mind, find balance, and encourage meditation, insight, and celebration.
