Walking the Labyrinth
There are many approaches to the labyrinth. You may choose a particular intention, or question or need to be met as you walk the labyrinth. Before entering the path pause to acknowledge the presence of the Holy Spirit. One Christian approach is based on the “threefold path” of Purgation, Illumination, and Union. These represent three stages in a labyrinth walk.
1. Releasing ~ From the entrance to the center is the path of shedding or letting go. There is a release and an emptying of worries
and concerns or anything that would block your receiving what you need.
2.Receiving ~ In the center there is illumination, insight, clarity & focus.
It is here that you open to God in a receptive, prayerful, meditative state.
3.Returning ~ The path out is where you become grounded and integrate the insight
or inspiration you received, making it manifest in the world.
