Public Invited to Walk Labyrinths

Public Invited to Walk Labyrinths

Two different labyrinths will be open on August 12, from 1pm to 3pm on the grounds of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hagerstown.
The labyrinth walks are free, open to the public and suitable for all ages.
The indoor labyrinth is a Petite Chartres design, a smaller version of the 12th century labyrinth inlaid on the floor of the Chartres Cathedral. The larger, outdoor labyrinth is the older, Cretan design.
Labyrinth walking is growing in popularity, both as a spiritual experience and as a form of relaxation and stress relief. Unlike mazes, labyrinths are not puzzles to figure out. Instead, a labyrinth is a single path to walk on a winding way into the center and out again.
Labyrinths have been used in many religions and cultures as far back as prehistoric times. Today, labyrinths can be found not only at churches, but also in hospitals, public parks, and private homes.
In case of inclement weather, one or both of the labyrinths may be closed.

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Hagerstown is located at 13245
Cearfoss Pike (Salem Ave/Rt. 58), about 1 mile west of I-81, exit 7B.
