Addenbrookes Mental Health Resilience Week 6 – 10 October 2014

On Monday 6th we made a temporary sand labyrinth on The Oval near the Frank Lee Centre. Monday turned out to be rainy and cold, so we put off lighting the labyrinth to Thursday 9th, when the evening was blustery but clear.

On Thursday 9th, 2 – 4 pm, we held an indoor labyrinth walk in the Chapel (in Addenbrookes Main Concourse). This was another opportunity for people to see and walk the beautiful hand-painted pebble labyrinth. I also took some of my Rowan finger labyrinths for people to enjoy.

Labyrinth-themed Quiet Day

Ferrar House, Little Gidding

Thurday 26 June 2014

Judy Fox led the day on Kay’s behalf. Ferrar House is a small retreat centre in the peaceful hamlet of Little Gidding, near Huntingdon.

The group made and walked a temporary outdoor labyrinth in the garden, and also made the short walk to Steeple Gidding, where they walked the cloth pebble labyrinth in the beautiful but now disused St Andrew’s church.

You can find more details about Ferrar House on their website, www.ferrarhouse.co.uk

Some comments from the Ferrar House website:

‘We may come here because T S Eliot did, his poem a lodestar to the place, but then our own experience of it takes over, as though a new poem has started to be written’ Frances Ward

‘The place is thin – God’s grace breaks through – you know that people have found something special here through the ages’ Graham Fawcett
