Our Labyrinth Needs Help

Over the years, members have enjoyed walking the labyrinth on our grounds, taking part in an age-old tradition.

To keep our labyrinth fresh and in walkable condition requires continual maintenance.  Right now it could use your help. If we re-design and clear it this spring, we’ll be ready for an easy seasonal maintenance plan.

Would you like to volunteer?  Call Melissa at 607-273-9550 or email folithaca@gmail.com.

Walking a labyrinth’s many turns reflects the journey of life, which involves change and transition, rites of passage, cycles of nature. Different from a maze – which has dead ends and false passages – the labyrinth has a single path that leads unerringly to the center.  It shows us that no time or effort is wasted; if we stay the course, every step, however circuitous, takes us closer to our center. As reaching the center is assured, walking the labyrinth is more about the journey than the destination, about being rather than doing, harmonizing movements of the body, turns of the mind, and self-discovery of the human spirit.
