Labyrinth Walk at Duke Chapel
March 3 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
The labyrinth, a 40-foot circle containing a winding path, is an ancient spiritual practice of meditation and self-centering found in religious traditions from around the world. This labyrinth is a copy of the labyrinth in the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France from around 1220.
“Walking the labyrinth is a wonderful way to set aside some time for quiet retreat, unwind and listen for our deepest wisdom,” said the Rev. Jeanette Stokes of the center. “While physically engaged in following the curving path, the mind can be free to rest or focus on a particular thought or issue, and the heart can be free to listen for the leading of God. The labyrinth is a wonderful container for our hopes, questions and concerns. As we walk, new insights often arise.”
