Bluestem Meadow Labyrinth
The reflection labyrinth at Bluestem Meadow is now complete! Designed by local artist, Courtney Johnson of CJ’s Custom Creations, our labyrinth is made from packed gravel and locally sourced stones. To increase accessibility, a switchback path to the labyrinth was created with as low of an incline as possible. The Bluestem Meadow labyrinth is truly unique as it was designed with wider paths than traditional labyrinths to welcome and accommodate wheelchairs, walkers, and strollers.
What is a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is a meditative path based on ancient geometric patterns that date back as far as the Neolithic and Bronze ages. These patterns were adopted as symbols for meditation and prayer in early religious practices. While a labyrinth may resemble a maze, the two are quite different. Mazes are puzzles that need to be solved with multiple paths and right and wrong choices. A labyrinth is a single path that you follow into its center and back out. There are no right or wrong directions and no right or wrong way to use a labyrinth.
How to Use Our Labyrinth
There are a variety of ways people find labyrinths to be beneficial. While some may enter a labyrinth with an intention in mind, others may wait to see where the journey takes them. A labyrinth can be a particularly powerful mindfulness experience as it engages both the body and mind. We hope you enjoy using the labyrinth on Bluestem Meadow.
