Lord, Teach Us to Pray - Labyrinth
Tuesday, January 9, 2018
Important: This event has already occurred.
- 7:00PM - 9:00PM
- St. Martin's Church - Meeting Room
During this session Fr. Robin will do an introduction on the Labyrinth. This is an opportunity to deepen our prayer life. There are many ways to pray - walking the labyrinth engages the heart, body and mind in prayer.
We have a great opportunity to borrow a portable labyrinth and part of the evening will be to walk around it.
There will also be music, wine and snacks. You should come!
Registration is free, however, please let us know whether you intend to come so we can plan appropriately. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring socks or indoor slippers to walk the labyrinth.
St. Paul's Vancouver has a built in labryinth - for more information please go to their website.
The labyrinth is a spiritual form that is open to people of all faiths and spiritual disciplines as a resource for meditation, reflection, and prayer.
People come to walk its winding path for countless reasons. For many, it is a way of centering themselves or of seeking insight during times of transition in their lives. For others, it is a channel for relating to the Divine.
Many religious traditions have some form of walking meditation. Labyrinths have appeared in many cultures. One of the best known forms of labyrinth is the seven-circuit classical or “Cretan” labyrinth of Greek mythology.
Labyrinths are often confused with mazes. Mazes are games or puzzles intended to confuse and trick the mind. Labyrinths have only one path that leads into the centre and back out again. It will never try to trick you, never divide, and never present you with a dead end.
