Come walk the Labyrinth here at Inisfada under a full moon. Walking a labyrinth is a meditation with unexpected outcomes. The experience quiets one, leaving a seeker open to Spirit. A person can walk the labyrinth looking for the answer to a question or wanting to deepen one’s relationship with God. Walking a labyrinth at full moon intensifies the experience. It is an opportunity to further deepen the search of awareness. Those choosing to walk during the full moon would be alerted to the possibility of an intense experience. This evening will begin with an introduction to labyrinths and how to walk one, followed by walking the candle-lit labyrinth. Please bring your own flashlight. After the walk, participants may gather to share their experiences.
$10 minimum donation requested!
