World Labyrinth Day!

Celebrate the 6th Annual World Labyrinth Day (WLD) on Saturday, May 3, 2014! The Labyrinth Society invites you to ‘Walk as One at 1" in the afternoon, joining others around the globe to create a wave of peaceful energy washing across the time zones.

Members of the Labyrinth Society are encouraged to facilitate group walks at public labyrinths to engage the community and amplify our collective energy. World Labyrinth Day is also a great opportunity to introduce others to the path by organizing lectures, workshops, tours, book readings, art exhibitions, or building temporary or permanent labyrinths. 

 

If you are unable to "Walk as One at 1," other opportunities to participate include tracing a finger labyrinth on paper or using a mobile app. Labyrinth walks and events can also be held in the morning or evening, as others will be walking in unison with you in other time zones. Just as there are a wide variety of uses of the labyrinth, creativity and multiplicity are encouraged. 


Here are 11 Ways to Celebrate World Labyrinth Day:

  1. Walk as One at 1 (or as time permits) 
  2. Trace or draw a finger labyrinth on paper or using a smartphone or tablet app
  3. Facilitate or join a group walk
  4. Host or join a lecture, workshop, art exhibition or tour
  5. Build a temporary or permanent labyrinth
  6. Discover a new labyrinth or submit an unlisted site to the Labyrinth Locator
  7. Write a blog post, newsletter submission, letter to the editor, or article for print or the internet
  8. Share and view WLD stories, photos, videos on Social Media using the hashtag #LabyrinthDay
  9. Read labyrinth books, watch movies, or sing songs
  10. Create a labyrinth art project, exhibition, or drawing class
  11. Help spread the word by posting flyers, sharing on social media, and listing your event on the TLS website
