“So much love in the street today <3" – Heart Labyrinth – Augusta Avenue – Pedestrian Sundays – Kensington Market – Toronto

I was kind of pissed off that after all my work in creating this Labyrinth, this lady and comes and chalks her commercial website’s URL right in the centre of the Heart…

It gave an impression that she or her website created or sponsored this Heart Labyrinth on Augusta Avenue.

Aw well.

So much love in the street today <3

“Looking to de-stress this Memorial Day Weekend ? How about a Labyrinth Walk at Land’s End?” — Instagram

Looking to de-stress this #memorialdayweekend ? How about a Labyrinth Walk at Land's End? #landsend #labyrinths #walikingmeditation

A photo posted by Walking Meditation (@labyrinths.walk) on

This instagram photo is taken from my story about Land’s End Labyrinth in San Francisco 11 years ago in July of 2005.

That’s my hand holding a printout of a seven circuit inner-Chartres Labyrinth design in front of Land’s End Labyrinth with The Golden Gate beyond and through the fog.

Here’s a photograph I captured immediately after the one instagrammed above…

Sometimes… Images from my City of Labyrinths website… re-appear… unexpectedly.

“Evan, Tylor, Evelyn and I were at a new Labyrinth when we were approached by a mysterious man who turned out to be the Labyrinth’s designer.” – Marley Kajan – Earlscourt Park Labyrinth – Toronto

“Evan, Tylor, Evelyn and I were at a new Labyrinth when we were approached by a mysterious man who turned out to be the Labyrinth’s designer.

He told us a couple fun facts including the fact that Toronto has the most labyrinths of any city in the world!

So I guess we’ll be doing them all summer.

Labyrinths are great for mindfulness and meditation. 😊”

“Toronto Labyrinths” Riverdale Park East – Morgan Yew (@weynagrom)

#torontolabyrinths

A post shared by Morgan Yew (@weynagrom) on


The incline towards the centre appears removed and you’d never realize the three colour Labyrinth was never painted upon a flat surface.

A Wonderful capture of my Labyrinth painted in the abandoned wading pool in Riverdale Park East.
