The labyrinth: Reclaiming an ancient spiritual tool for a modern healthcare setting. Journal of Health Care Chaplaincy, 10:1, Summer, 55-62. (2010)

Hopthrow, L.

A labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool that is being reclaimed in the modern world as a tool for contemplation. Although our experience is primarily in palliative care, labyrinths are beneficial in any healthcare setting. Pilgrims Hospices in East Kent have used different forms of labyrinths with patients and careers as they have been found to be calming or enlightening. The Department of Health has funded a labyrinth as part of a Therapeutic Labyrinth Garden, and this article reports on Pilgrims Hospices’ experience as an encouragement for other hospices and hospitals to provide a labyrinth as a part of the spiritual care offered not only to patients and careers but also to staff and volunteers.
