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.

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 .
