Walking around the circuits of a labyrinth is an intriguing new method of meditation, claimed by many to have both spiritual and physical healing attributes. Here is a remarkable self-development book that offers instruction and inspiration on labyrinth walking. The author begins by describing her personal journey of labyrinth exploration. She goes on to note the recent rapid growth of interest in labyrinths, with major sites located in 38 states, from California to New Jersey, as well as in many other places around the world. In this beautifully illustrated volume, she describes the method of laying a labyrinth on the earth or on a floor, then tells how it needs to be brought alive through group participation in rhythms of music and dance. She explains the labyrinth's underlying theory.
