Labyrinth Renewed

Tuesday 26 June 2012

We are happy to announce the Labyrinth has had a total renewal, due to the beautiful work of Mick, John and Warwick of the Crystal Castle team, and Patrick from Interactive Landscapes. It is looking absolutely fantastic, and feels better than ever.
Referred to as A Walk of Spiritual Reflection, the labyrinth can be used simply as a peaceful walk or as an opportunity to quietly reflect and allow the space for an answer to arise. A suggestion is for the walker to hold a question in their mind whilst allowing themselves to be receptive or 'invite in' guidance.

In the Middle Ages an eleven-circuit labyrinth design divided into four quadrants became popular. It was often found in Gothic Cathedrals but over time many of these eleven-circuit designs were destroyed or intentionally removed. The most famous labyrinth still in existence today is at Chartres Cathedral near Paris. Its labyrinth was built around 1200 AD.

Created in 2000, the Crystal Castle’s labyrinth is based on this same design. The walker meanders through each of the four quadrants several times before reaching the goal. An expectancy is created as to when the centre will be reached. At the centre is a rosette design which has a rich symbolic value including that of enlightenment.

This amazing place has been the site for wedding ceremonies and solstice rituals with its mystical setting and rose quartz flower of life at the centre.
