Mancelona Labyrinth of Hope

Over 30 volunteers in the community of Mancelona, Michigan under the direction of Ellen Whitehead came together to build the Mancelona Labyrinth of Hope. The community in beautiful Northern Michigan has suffered in recent years from the economic recession of the past decade, manufacturing job leaving the country, and businesses shutting up in our small downtown. But our people are resilient and still have hope in their hearts for a renaissance to begin in our town—and it has! Our labyrinth has already touched many people of all ages, both community residents and tourists who visit the area.

The $500 grant received from TLS enabled three individuals receive facilitator training so they can further educate the community and facilitate labyrinth events.
