Overview

The first time Helen Curry walked a labyrinth she was moved to tears and then "was filled with peace and possibilities." Here, she shares her years of experience with labyrinth meditation and shows how others can find serenity and guidance by adopting this increasingly popular practice. Unlike mazes, which force choices and can create fear and confusion, labyrinths are designed to "embrace" and guide individuals through a calming, meditative walk on a single circular path. The Way of the Labyrinth includes meditations, prayers, questions for enhancing labyrinth walks, guidelines for ceremonies, instructions for finger meditations, and extensive resources. This enchanting, practical, and exquisitely packaged guide helps both novice and experienced readers enjoy the benefits of labyrinth meditation, from problem-solving to stress reduction to personal transformation. Includes a foreword by Jean Houston, the renowned author and leader in the field of humanistic psychology, who is considered the grandmother of the current labyrinth revival.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This work, written by a founder of the international Labyrinth Society, is not so much a scholarly treatment of the origin, meaning, and history of labyrinths--all still hotly contested--as a guide through the various potential meanings of different sorts of labyrinths for the modern person. It also explains how to construct labyrinths of one's own, including the 11-circuit labyrinth pattern found on the floor of Chartres Cathedral. Curry's work is a gentle and thought-provoking starting-point for meditation upon and within labyrinths that concludes with a handy list of resources, both print and web-based, for further work.
