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.
A large 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 enjoy this amenity.
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
