WLD logoInformation on World Labyrinth Day from The Labyrinth Society

World Labyrinth Day is an annual event sponsored by The Labyrinth Society as a worldwide action to "walk as one at 1" local time to create a rolling wave of peaceful energy across the globe. Every year on the first Saturday in May thousands of people around the world participate in this moving meditation for world peace.

Amid all of the sensible and necessary precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be advisable to approach World Labyrinth Day (the first Saturday in May) a little differently this year. The Labyrinth Society would like to suggest smaller celebrations and more individual participation, paired with a united effort to connect with more people worldwide as we all face this difficult situation together.

The labyrinth has much to offer in this uncertain time. As a meditative activity, it can help to reduce stress, tension, and anxiety, lower heart rate and blood pressure, and encourage relaxation and insightful introspection. As we cope with social distancing and quarantines, being part of the worldwide labyrinth community can help to mitigate isolation and loneliness.

World Labyrinth Day: Walk around the World ‐ 24‐hour Virtual Celebration

The Labyrinth Society is excited to announce Walk around the World, a 24‐hour international online event on World Labyrinth Day, that will connect people virtually across time zones on the GoToMeeting platform. An amazing group of worldwide labyrinth community volunteers are offering virtual labyrinth walks and presentations as we Walk around the World from New Zealand to Hawaii on World Labyrinth Day!

Walk around the World will run from Friday 8:00 pm EDT (May 1) through Saturday 8:00 pm EDT (May 2). Once you have registered, you can drop in at any time, even multiple times, throughout World Labyrinth Day, around any other virtual or individual activities that you have planned. While registration is free, we do welcome donations of any amount to support the work of The Labyrinth Society.

 

WLD logoWorld Labyrinth Day message from Lakeside Labyrinth

Since 2009, on the first Saturday in May, people around the world have walked labyrinths in peaceful connection. For twenty-four hours, a rolling wave of energy flows around the globe at 1:00 pm, no matter what time zone you happen to be in.

For the first time since 2009, the Nelson Community Labyrinth Group will NOT host a public walk at the Lakeside Labyrinth in Nelson’s Rotary Park. This is in respect for the physical distancing protocols that have been set out to protect our community and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

However, World Labyrinth Day is not cancelled. Energy does not need a physical space to flow. It is all about intention. And this year we need positive energy flowing around the globe, more than ever before.

Wherever you are on Saturday, May May 2nd, at 1:00 pm, take a few minutes to pause and focus positive energy flowing like a wave around the world. Imagine sunshine reflecting off that wave and bathing everyone in healing Vitamin D. Imagine every being in every species in vibrant health. Thoughts are powerful and have the ability to manifest our reality. Let’s make it a good one.

We've offered some suggestions below to inspire your walk
