Walking the Labyrinth to Relaxation, Reflection, Renewal, and Connection


Leisure Information Network
Beverly Chen

This resource describes what a labyrinth is, its history and benefits, five stages of a labyrinth walk, suggestions for walking one, and examples of several labyrinths. It also describes Finger Labyrinths, which can provide most of the same benefits as floor labyrinths. Links are provided to find more information about labyrinths and to find one near you.
