In the Christian tradition, Epiphany is the celebration of the visit of the three wise people to the baby Jesus. Epiphany comes from ancient Greek meaning “manifestation” or “striking appearance.” We use the work in English to denote a striking revelation.
We invite you to walk a labyrinth this year on Epiphany and to let the experience reveal to you whatever it might. You may want to carry a question with you on the walk or simply be open to whatever appears to you.
We have checked with a few of our favorite labyrinth locations and have listed them below. You may find others through your own networks or at: http://labyrinthlocator.com/
