Lab·y·rinth /lab(ə)ˌrinTH/ — 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.
Ever wonder how to walk a labyrinth? 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.
