“When people collectively process grief or show solidarity, they walk. It’s instinctual; it’s in our DNA; it’s part of the deep wisdom of the labyrinth.”

– The Rev. Lauren Artress

What is a labyrinth?

The labyrinth is an ancient shape with modern applications.

Unlike a maze with many dead ends and decisions, the labyrinth is unicursal. One path leads to the center and back out again.

Dating back thousands of years, labyrinths have been found all over the globe and across countless cultures. Today labyrinths are being built in:


  • Parks & Playgrounds
  • Schools & Offices
  • Hospitals & Assisted Living Facilities
  • Churches
  • Prisons
  • Spas
  • Military Bases
  • Recovery Centers
  • Backyards & Gardens
