The Bainbridge Island labyrinth at Halls Hill Lookout. The labyrinth is designed in the same 11 circuit medieval styles as the labyrinth at Chartres but is a natural stone mosaic set in its own “cathedral” of trees.
W alking the labyrinth as a meditative practice has long intrigued me. Labyrinths, such as the famous one at Chartres, were used as a metaphorical pilgrimage when a physical pilgrimage wasn’t possible.
As with any practice that encourages attention, walking the labyrinth, paying attention to each step to and from the center, can be a quieting and calming experience.
I’ve always wanted to visit the labyrinth at Chartres but never have made it there yet. Fortunately, we have a beautiful labyrinth sitting in its own “cathedral” of trees on Bainbridge Island.
