A feather banner marks the site of the ‘mindful labyrinth’ for Addenbrooke’s Hospital Mental Health Resilience Week
The temporary sand labyrinth was built on ‘The Oval’, the green space next to the Frank Lee Centre
On the evening of Thursday 9th October we lit the labyrinth with LED tea lights
A charm of goldfinches made a very special ‘fly past’ of this year’s labyrinth at dusk on Thursday. As we watched from the top of the car park, at first they looked like Autumn leaves being blown from the trees. But then they turned and flew back, and we realised they were goldfinches.
This year we also held a labyrinth walk of the cloth ‘pebble’ labyrinth in the hospital chapel on Thursday afternoon. Thanks to everyone who came and helped, and to all the staff and visitors who joined us in walking the labyrinth or trying the wooden Rowan finger labyrinths. Some of these will continue to be available for patients to use on the wards. We hope they will bring a sense of peace and calm into the busy environment of the hospital.
Kay and a team of helpers made this temporary labyrinth out of poured sand and LED tea lights for Addenbrooke’s Mental Health Resilience Week. People of all ages and backgrounds came to walk it. This magical photo was taken at nightfall from the top of the staff car park by Jan Sellers. Find out more by reading the Addenbrooke’s Mental Health Resilience Week page on this blog.
