Date/Time

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Address
Saint Thomas Episcopal Church
301 St Thomas Road
Lancaster, PA, 17601, United States

In partnership with Saint James Episcopal Church, Lancaster, PA

Led by Carmel Marie Stabley, Regional Representative Coordinator for The Labyrinth Society (TLS) and a Veriditas Certified-Advanced Labyrinth Facilitator

Join an ancient practice during this evening at St. Thomas Episcopal Church and reconnect with your center while in community with like-minded wanderers.

When walked with intention, a labyrinth becomes a sacred journey.  A simple walk on the concentric path can become a ritual to enact your sacred quest. When the four movements of the labyrinth, which are the same way one moves through a pilgrimage, become entrained, all life becomes an unceasing prayer and we learn to respond as Christ would. Our whole being remembers gratefulness, releasing, receiving, and resolving.

Light Refreshments Served

Rain or Shine – (In case of rain, the evening will be moved Indoors to the canvas labyrinth in the Parish Hall)

Carmel hosts monthly walks and seminars in Lancaster, PA, and the surrounding area where she creates labyrinth experiences and provides teaching on the history, sacred geometry and the mental, physical and spiritual benefits of the walking meditation practice.
