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.
