The Story Labyrinth
Story. Unpredictable, yet ordered. Confusing, yet enlightening. Our stories shape us, and we shape our stories as we walk through them; our lives a holy journey, our existence a pilgrimage.
People have walked labyrinths since ancient times. We walk for many reasons: meditation, prayer, relaxation, direction, repentance, healing, pilgrimage or just plain fun.
The Wild Goose Story Labyrinth is a self-guided interactive prayer walk which invites you to pause and engage with the journey which is your life story, and the story of others. The Chartes-style labyrinth contains “stations” which provide hands-on opportunities to contemplate, express or receive Story in various creative ways.
Take off your shoes, feel the earth beneath your feet, and walk into the twisted beauty of The Story Labyrinth.
