World Labyrinth Day

Celebrate World Labyrinth Day on Saturday, May 4, 2019 and join over 5,000 people taking steps for peace, 'Walking as One at 1' in the afternoon. For the 10th Anniverary in 2018, there were participants in over 35 countries! If you are new to labyrinths, find one to walk in your area using the World Wide Labyrinth Locator. You can also learn to draw or build a simple labyrinth with links in our resources section below. Already planning an event? Be counted and fill out our survey (anonymous ok) with the WLD Google Form.

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 labyrnths.

The Australian Labyrinth Network has also introduced a new initiative this year: World Labyrinth Day in Schools on Friday, May 3, 2019! Please see their website for more information and a full page of resources.

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 is a slideshow showcasing a variety of WLD images shared on social media in 2017.
