This is a free event hosted by the Nelson Community Labyrinth Group
World Labyrinth Day
Saturday, May 5th,
'Walk as One at 1:00'
Since 2009, labyrinths around the world have invited people to join in a simple walk of peaceful connection on the first Saturday in May. A rolling wave of energy will flow across the globe at 1:00 pm, no matter what time zone you happen to be in.
The Lakeside Labyrinth in Nelsonís Lakeside Rotary Park will host a walk on Saturday, May 5th at 1:00 pm. An information table will be on display and representatives of the Nelson Community Labyrinth Group will be on hand to answer questions. It is a simple walk with no prerequisite training required. All ages are welcome. Make it a family event; bring a picnic.
Labyrinths have been found all over the world, from ancient civilizations to modern communities. Some are found outdoors in nature and some are painted on cathedral floors. They have represented that place where people may find their connection to the bigger picture of life. Who
am I? Why am I here? Common questions for those seeking purpose and direction. Some people walk labyrinths as a meditation practice, where inner quiet meets inner wisdom.
World Labyrinth Day offers an opportunity to find that place of inner peace and to project that out to the world, meeting up energetically with other walkers doing the same thing.
There are several labyrinths in the West Kootenay region. The Lakeside Labyrinth in Nelson was constructed in 2004 and is open to the public in Lakeside Rotary Park and is free to walk for anyone of any age. It is wheelchair accessible and is close to the public washrooms.
