A healing tool, the labyrinth offers a meditative journey to wholeness by walking the 1/3-mile path to the center. Donated by generous family members of cancer patients, the labyrinth at Wings represents our dedication to support and honor the whole person - mind, body and spirit - as part of the battle against cancer.
Dating back thousands of years, a labyrinth is a universal image representing the path of life and symbolizing unity. Unlike a maze which is designed to confuse with its multiple choices, a labyrinth is designed to help us find our way.
The circle is divided into four quadrants with an eleven-circuit path. The path gently leads you to the center no matter how many twists and turns you encounter. Its equal number of left and right turns is thought to balance the two spheres of the brain. In fact, the body’s own balancing mechanism, located in the middle ear, is called the labyrinth.
Walking the labyrinth encourages being present for every step and trusting the path even though, like life, it is impossible to see what lies beyond each twist and turn. In the medical setting it promotes relaxation and supports body, mind and spirit. Walking the labyrinth is an excellent tool for integrating spiritual self-care into a health care setting.
Each interaction with the labyrinth may provide a very different experience because each time we bring a different inner landscape to the experience. Begin your walk by clearing your mind. Find your own pace. When you reach the center, you may remain there as long as you wish. When you are ready, simply the follow the same path back out. You may wish to pass others or to be passed. Please respect the experience by walking in silence.
