Labyrinth Walk for healing in Haiti

labyrinth bahamas

Around the world on Friday the 22nd (today), people are walking labyrinths as a communal prayer for healing in the Haitian Earthquake Recovery. Join friends at Wesleyan on our labyrinth by Davison between 4 and 5 p.m.

An introduction to the labyrinth will happen at 4 p.m., but stop by anytime. From Áine McCarthy ’10:

Where is the labyrinth?

  • Approaching from Wyllys Ave: You’ll find it in between the Secret Society Tomb, and the World Music Hall
  • Approaching from High St: You’ll find it in between the Anthro and FGSS Dept. buildings
  • Approaching from the CFA: It’s right behind the Davison Art Center next to the fountain

What is the labyrinth?

  • The labyrinth is an archetypal pathway which you can walk. Different from a maze, there are no tricks on the path, walking it leads you to the center. Wesleyan’s labyrinth is an eleven-circuit medieval labyrinth design, originally laid into the floor of Chartes Cathedral as a symbolic pilgrimage. The experience invites reflection, meditation, and calm. This is a nonreligious, spiritual practice that many different people find meaningful. You can come to it with a question, an intention, a problem, or just a need for a study break.

Date: Friday, January 22
Time: 4-5 pm

    I hate to point out the obvious here but there are people on this campus who have family and friends in Haiti and who are in need of healing. Facist etc. obviously are not included in that group of people so the appropriate action would be to skim the post, not offer their [unwelcome, unproductive] criticism. Also, the labyrinth event will be from 4-5. Those who chose to attend can walk after the meeting.

    Ironically, this event is scheduled to overlap exactly with the meeting discussing how Wesleyan student groups should respond to relief efforts.

    When the only two events regarding the problems in Haiti happening on campus this week are scheduled for the same one-hour block, I worry that we will, as has so often been the case, be too disjointed and disorganized to actually confront the issues that we care about.

    Or we could do something useful… meditation will not save a single life, and the narcissism of spiritual people will not fix the world.
