Past: "Walk as One at 1" for World Peace

The Labyrinth at Abbey Road

The Labyrinth at Abbey Road is sponsoring a walk for peace on Saturday, May 4, at 1:00 pm as we "Walk as One at 1" celebrating the 11th Annual World Labyrinth Day (WLD). According to Lars Howlett, Event Coordinator, "...the Labyrinth Society invites the world to cross mental borders in a shared symbolic walk for peace...by holding private walks or public events on the labyrinth. As mindfulness and meditation have gone mainstream, people around the world have been turning to labyrinths as a spiritual exercise or for stress relief." He notes that over 5,000 people participated in WLD last year from more than 35 countries. He adds that labyrinths are found in diverse environments from schools and parks to prisons and corporate campuses, and "churches are also building labyrinths as an alternative way to engage their community and facilitate spiritual practice". They have new ambitious goals for this year's WLD, stating that "As governments and armies seem to further polarize world peoples, the labyrinth has been a bridge between cultures throughout history" and "World Labyrinth Day is for everyone and, like the labyrinth itself, is an opportunity to develop tolerance and compassion for others from different walks of life."
