Labyrinth walking is an ancient practice used by many different faiths to facilitate prayer, meditation, and spiritual transformation. When you walk the labyrinth, the winding path becomes a metaphor for your spiritual journey. We invite you to walk our labyrinths with an open mind and open heart.
When entering the single, serpentine path of a labyrinth, one walks slowly while quieting their mind and focusing on a spiritual question or prayer. It is a sacred space to become enlightened, realigned with the universe, and increasingly empowered to know one’s self and to accomplish the work of the soul.
At Tau Center, you have your choice of two labyrinth paths. One is located in one of the Quiet Rooms of the Tau Center, where a smaller, simple labyrinth pattern is marked on the floor. A larger outdoor labyrinth is located behind Tau Center as part of Marianjoy Hospital and is based on the design of the well-known labyrinth at Chartes Cathedral in France. All Tau Center visitors are welcome to use either.
On the way out from the center, the walker should feel a sense of communion with the cosmos, God, or some sort of higher, healing power. A dance I do with my soul. — Anonymous
