An Introduction to Facilitating Labyrinth Experiences
A workshop for those who are interested in being equipped to introduce the labyrinth to others and to lead labyrinth experiences. The labyrinth is a pattern that is found in all areas of the world dating back to ancient times. Its circular shape and winding path has significant application as a metaphor for wholeness and the journey of life. The labyrinth can become a meditative tool and a time of prayer for those who walk it. Join Rev. Robin McGauley on January 29th to explore how the church can offer this spiritual tool to the community. Learn how to introduce the labyrinth to others and gain some tools and resources for facilitating small groups in experiencing this sacred practice.Who?​  ​Rev.
