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)

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.

“MAKE CITIES FUN! Did you know, Toronto has the most labyrinths than any other city in the world!” — Nicole Czorny


It’s the Sunday after World Labyrinth Day 2016, which was the day before, and I am leading a different Jane’s Walk than the one yesterday.

As my Dark Age Ahead – The Wizard of Ossington Jane’s Walk begins and passes through Christie Pits Park, I usually include a brief walk stop by my Christie Pits Park Wading Pool Labyrinth.

That’s where Nicole’s instagram above was captured.

Being a Jane’s Walk leader often has me concentrating on doing the best job I can.

That entails putting away the camera to be there in the moment.

I have so few photographs of my own walks.

Thankfully, Nicole shared a number of instagrams throughout this walk. And I am deeply grateful!

Enjoy…

“The Two Kings and the Two Labyrinths” – Jorge Luis Borges

The Catacombs - Babylon

“It is said by men worthy of belief (though Allah’s knowledge is greater) that in the first days there was a king of the isles of Babylonia who called together his architects and his priests and bade them build him a labyrinth so confused and so subtle that the most prudent men would not venture to enter it, and those who did would lose their way.

“Most unseemly was the edifice that resulted, for it is the prerogative of God, not man, to strike confusion and inspire wonder.

“In time there came to the court a king of Arabs, and the king of Babylonia (to mock the simplicity of his guest) bade him enter the labyrinth, where the king of Arabs wandered, humiliated and confused, until the coming of the evening, when he implored God’s aid and found the door.

“His lips offered no complaint, though he said to the king of Babylonia that in his land he had another labyrinth, and Allah willing, he would see that someday the king of Babylonia made its acquaintance.

“Then he returned to Arabia with his captains and his wardens and he wreaked such havoc upon kingdoms of Babylonia, and with such great blessing by fortune, that he brought low his castles, crushed his people, and took the king of Babylonia himself captive.

“He tied him atop a swift-footed camel and led him into the desert. Three days they rode, and then he said to him,

“O king of time and substance and cipher of the century! In Babylonia didst thou attempt to make me lose my way in a labyrinth of brass with many stairways, doors, and walls; now the Powerful One has seen fit to allow me to show thee mine, which has no stairways to climb, nor walls to impede thy passage.”

“Then he untied the bonds of the king of Babylonia and abandoned him in the middle of the desert, where he died of hunger and thirst.

“Glory to Him who does not die.”
