Dialogue with the self: The labyrinth as a medium for intrapersonal communication

Roodt, Z.

Abstract:  This article aims at investigating labyrinth walking as a form of communication with the self.  Based primarily on the concept of self-talk as a distinguishable form of communication, the author draws a number of conclusions, mainly in relation to the concepts of listening and meaning. It is inferred that the labyrinth is a communication medium that affords the labyrinth walker as the source/receiver the opportunity to embrace silence, and to enter into dialogue with the self in the heart of the labyrinth in order to find meaning in both the personal and transpersonal context. It may be concluded that the labyrinth is a visual manifestation of intrapersonal communication and the circuitous process through which we gain access to our innermost communicative and communicating self.
