Vancouver Island Labyrinth Pilgrimage

Sat Oct 21, 2017 – Mon Oct 23, 2017
All Day

Labyrinths have existed for centuries and have been used by people of many faith traditions for spiritual path-making. Labyrinths have also been used in leadership programs to help people understand where they are in the cycle of growth, as well as in therapeutic programs to provide relief from challenges with disability. This traveling labyrinth experience will explore labyrinths on Vancouver Island from the Christian and folk religions as well as labyrinths that are used for therapeutic and leadership programs.

Some highlights of this program include: The Therapeutic Equine Labyrinth & Medicine Horses in Coombs, the World’s First Finger Labyrinth Museum as well as the 11 Circuit Chartres Replica Labyrinth at Bethlehem Centre in Nanaimo, Gabrioles’ Madagasgar Crystal and Copper Pipe Labyrinth, the Circle of Peace Labyrinth at West Coast General Hospital in Port Alberni, the Parksville Community Park Legacy Labyrinth, O.U.R Ecovillage 7 circuit labyrinth near Mill Bay and more! In addition, Joanne and Richard Sales will lead the group in “Dances of Universal Peace” which highlight the movement, chants and songs from Islamic, Judaic and Christian traditions as part of the program on Saturday at the Centre. We will even have a Naam Yoga class and then learn to draw labyrinths on the beach in Parksville.
