"Forgiveness"­ labyrinth walk @ Millbrook Baptist Church

Our walk will start at 2:30PM ... this is earlier than originally scheduled.

Labyrinths can be walked in many different ways (there is no wrong way!) but for this walk we'll be focusing on forgiveness.  Since this is scheduled just before the November and December holidays, when we frequently have get-togethers with family and friends, it seems like a good time to focus on forgiveness - ourselves and others.  I'll be incorporating the work of Edwene Gaines on forgiveness (from her book "The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity").

I'll spend the first 15 minutes talking about the 11-circuit Chartres labyrinth, giving a general overview of labyrinth walking, providing a suggested way to walk the labyrinth as a forgiveness walk (along with a small "cheat sheet" for participants), and initiating the flow of participants into the labyrinth. Before we start out, we'll spend time in silence to set our individual intentions for the forgiveness walk; and, at the end we'll journal.  Afterwords we'll come together as a group to talk.

We'll walk rain or shine, unless there's thunder and lightning.  This is a flat cement surface on which the labyrinth design has been painted.  Typically folks walk in barefeet (to connect more with the ground) but shoes and/or socks are fine too.  Plan on about 1-1/2 hours to walk and to journal.

    What a beautiful autumn day to be outdoors on a labyrinth. We had 4 "strays" join us for the walk to make a group of 9. Tree leaves were blowing down all around us - our own personal leaf storm. The labyrinth can be walked by individuals at anytime (only groups need to signup withe MBC) so for those of you who missed out I hope that you'll check it out when you're in north Raleigh.

    Leslie:

    I had fully intended to come, but got incorrect directions from mapquest. Sorry I missed it.

    I would love to do this but will be out of town that weekend. But please schedule other things at times other than Sunday morning. I'd like the opportunity to walk with you. :)

      Hi Bonnie - Sorry that you'll be out of town that weekend. This walk is actually @ 3:30PM (which is afternoon to me ... :) ). Most walks are on Sunday mornings so that we're on the trails when they are the least crowded - which makes a huge difference in the experience. Perhaps in the future we'll branch out to other times ...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
