COME WALK THE LABYRINTH!
Late on Yom Kippur afternoon we will have the opportunity for a guided labyrinth walk in Woodstock.
What is a labyrinth?
A labyrinth is NOT a maze. A maze is a puzzle, with twists and dead ends. A labyrinth has a single, winding path from the entrance to the center, and a different path back out.
What happens when I walk a labyrinth?
Walking the labyrinth is a form of meditation. The invitation before entering is to bring to mind any questions you might have. Since we will be walking on Yom Kippur, you may find that the themes of teshuvah (reflections on our words or deeds that missed the mark of the standards we wish to live up to), forgiveness to be sought and asked for, clarity for our purpose in life, and understanding of the things that block our growth are meaningful for you.
In the center of the labyrinth
We take a moment or two to receive whatever insights there are. It is the heart of the path, and illumination may come.
On the way out
We may feel a sense of wholeness and renewed purpose.
As we leave the labyrinth
We turn, face the center, and take a moment to appreciate the separation between whatever happened during the walk and the rest of life.
Rabbi Ellen Triebwasser will be leading the walk, and will have more information to offer. If you have any questions, please contact her at: email@example.com
Please wear your mask as you walk because you will pass close to other people.
The labyrinth is evenly paved in stone and is easy to walk on. Join us at 4:30pm on Yom Kippur afternoon.
