World Labyrinth Day Labyrinth Walk in Hilton UK, Saturday 2 May
Our base will be the Village Hall, next to the historic turf maze, cut in 1660. Traditionally in the UK the terms ‘labyrinth’ and ‘maze’ have been interchangeable. The Hilton maze is a beautiful unicursal labyrinth of medieval design. We will gather at 12 noon and ‘walk as one at one’. I will also bring my cloth labyrinth to use inside the hall. Please bring a picnic lunch. Hot and cold drinks provided. Event finishes at 4.00. Suggested donation of £10, booking advisable, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Labyrinth Weekend 21 – 23 June 2019
Mirfield Community of the Resurrection,
An opportunity to experience life in an Anglican Monastery, while exploring the labyrinth as a form of prayer and meditation. On this retreat I will be assisted by Judy Fox, who will bring a lot of wisdom and experience to our gathering.
We’ll learn a little about the history and symbolism of the labyrinth. We will have fun making our own corn labyrinth in the beautiful grounds and lighting it with tea lights for a magical dusk labyrinth walk.
There will be plenty of time for quiet reflection. I will bring some of my beautiful Rowan wooden finger labyrinths and there will be opportunities to walk Mirfield’s neo-medieval turf labyrinth and the indoor canvas ‘pebble’ labyrinth.
On this retreat there will be a good deal of silence: during the ‘Greater Silence’ from evening worship in the Church until 9 am; in the monastery church and corridors; and at most (but not all) meal times. Although it can seem strange at first, keeping silence can be restful, and blossom into a wonderful gift.
Worship: joining in with the community in their worship times is an optional part of the retreat. It can be a wonderful experience simply to listen to the liturgy and plainsong.
The cost of the weekend is a very modest £200, which includes a single room and all meals. Would you like to join us for our labyrinth adventure?
