Walking the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral

I took some time on my day off last week to go to Grace Cathedral to walk their new and improved labyrinth.  As you can see, they replaced the wool tapestry labyrinth with a stone inlaid labyrinth that looks more like the original 11-circuit Chartres labyrinth in the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Chartres, France.

While I walked, it was very crowded as people came to walk after work.  Staying for a while, walking slowly as people rushed through their experience, allowed me to remain later to have most of the labyrinth to walk by myself.  This is one of my favorite places on earth, having taken the Facilitator's Training in 2002.  Imagine walking in this space with a live harpist and rose petals falling down from the ceiling!  More information is available at
