Webdef: Labyrinth

Lab·y·rinth /lab’ə’rinθ/ — Noun: A maze of paths or passages with symbolic or impenetrable borders, as in a garden. In Christian practice, the labyrinth leads inward to the center, then outward again, and the path itself is winding, echoing life. The pilgrim walking the labyrinth often removes shoes and is invited to leave worldly thoughts behind when journeying towards the center, symbolically going deeper. Then, after a time at the center, the pilgrim is invited to carry away something of God, for the journey back into the world.
