Building a labyrinth

I decided to do something that I’ve been wanting to do for years, so I’m building a labyrinth in our front pasture. A labyrinth is a Celtic design, dating back for probably thousands of years. It’s essentially a walking path that sets up a particular energy for the person who walks it.

We have about 3 open acres in our front pasture, some of which we have used for garden beds. I decided to use part of it for this project. I’m building a seven-circuit labyrinth using small rocks from our property. The first thing I did was ask Stevo to mow the grass for me. :-)  He’s currently in the middle of mowing the entire pasture, but he did my section first.

The next thing I did was lay out the seed pattern, from which you can easily construct the rest of the labyrinth. Once you have the seed pattern, it’s just a matter of connecting the dots. If you do a web search on seven-circuit labyrinth, you’ll find instructions on how to draw one from a seed pattern.

I can already feel the energy of the labyrinth even though I’ve only completed a few paths.
