While large group events are planned, no event is too small.
World Labyrinth Day is a day that brings people from all over the planet together in celebration of the labyrinth as a
symbol, a tool, a passion or a practice.
This "Day" can be whatever you’re inspired to make it. A day to inform and educate the public, host walks, build
permanent and/or temporary labyrinths, create labyrinth art and more.We enthusiastically encourage you to "find
your way.”While the origin of the labyrinth is unknown, labyrinths have been found all over the world datingfrom
earliest antiquity. Once popular in the Middle Ages, labyrinths have been experiencing a resurgence in popularity. It
has become increasingly common to find labyrinths in schools, prisons,parks, hospitals, spas, churches, and retreat
centers. The World Wide Labyrinth Locator,
www.labyrinthlocator.com, an online database, lists over 3400 labyrinths around the world.
Labyrinths are thought to enhance right brain activity, and uses include problem solving, conflict resolution, walking
meditation, modern day pilgrimage, and stress management. The American
Cancer Society states that labyrinths "may be helpful as a complementary method to decrease stress and create a
state of relaxation."
Research studies conducted in a variety of settings consistently have shown that walking a labyrinth reduces stress.
In the past, a variety of events were held at over 100 locations worldwide, including the Ellipse in Washington, D.C.,
churches, and even a maximum-security women’s prison. Countries joining the celebration included: the United
States, Canada, England, the Bahamas, France, Spain, New Zealand, China, South Africa, and Australia.
Individuals who wish to participate may use a finger labyrinth in the comfort of their home.
The LabyrinthSociety.org vision statement reads, “to inspire possibilities and create connections through the
labyrinth.” In keeping with the mission to support all those who create, maintain and use labyrinths, and to serve the
global community by providing education, networking and opportunities to experience transformation.
