What is a labyrinth?

 A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that represents wholeness. The oldest known labyrinths ate thousands of years old. They are found all over the world in many designs.  It is a winding path along which you might walk, run, crawl, skip or otherwise move. Walking a labyrinth can serve a variety of purposes. Ultimately, the labyrinth can be seen as a purposeful path that leads to a journey of self-discovery.

Is a labyrinth a maze?

 When people hear of a labyrinth they may think of a maze. A labyrinth is not a maze. A maze has paths and possibilities for wrong turns - designed to confuse you.

Labyrinths were designed to help people find their way – if you follow the path of a labyrinth, you will find the centre.
