A global event celebrating the labyrinth on the first Saturday in May.


World Labyrinth Day is intended as a day that brings people from all over the planet together in celebration of the labyrinth as a symbol, a tool, a passion or a practice. This can be a day to inform and educate the public, host walks, build permanent and/or temporary labyrinths, make labyrinth art or more.


If there are only right ways to walk a labyrinth, it follows that there are only right ways to celebrate World Labyrinth Day. Find your way.


Also as part of this celebration you are invited to “Walk as One at 1” to effect a rolling wave of labyrinth walking as the earth turns. Walk in your local time zone at 1:00 PM.

World Labyrinth Day – 2014


hold this as an imagination......
Think about the fact that labyrinths appeared all over the world, long long ago, when
there was no obvious form of communication from continent to continent.

This is one of life's mysteries.... how did this happen?

Think of it as one of Divine's gifts.... given to assist humankind
as it goes through its growth and evolution

We have an opportunity on the first Saturday in May to take full advantage of this gift

People all over the world will be walking labyrinths in celebration

The greatest gift we can give the labyrinth is to utilize it for the purpose it was given to us:
to affect a feeling of connection to labyrinths all over the world
and to all the people walking them on this day

With this connection we can affect major shift in our human thinking,
our human willing, and our human doing

We understand the law of attraction.... that whatever we focus on increases

So, if we focus on gratitude for all of those things we appreciate and love in our lives.....
those very things will be nurtured and healed and will flourish and increase

… if we walk with an intention of GRATITUDE for the healthy waters, the healthy
seeds, peace in our hearts, the oneness of all life everywhere...... anything we can
imagine that brings us joy

.... this is what we will experience

.... this walk is a walk of joy, in gratitude, and celebration

World Labyrinth Day 2020


WLD logo

For the first time since 2009, the Nelson Community Labyrinth Group did not host a public walk at the Lakeside Labyrinth in Nelson’s Rotary Park. This was in respect for the physical distancing protocols set out to protect our community and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We created a virtual display on our website which offered several safe alternatives. Many of these alternatives are available in the RESOURCES section of our website

The Labyrinth Society hosted Walk around the World, a 24‐hour international online event that connected people virtually across time, offering virtual labyrinth walks and presentations.

Due to COVID-19, we were unable to host a walk this year. A few people came out to walk the labyrinth on their own.
