Labyrinth – Dover 2009

The Labyrinth ( Greek – labyrinthos ) of Greek mythology was designed as a structure to imprison the Minotaur, while prehistoric labyrinths were believed to have functioned as traps for malevolent spirits. Labyrinths are uni-cursal pathways leading to a centre, then back out again, and can also act as symbolic forms of pilgrimage, where people can walk the path, ascending toward salvation or enlightenment. A maze is constructed using dead-ends and false paths, but a labyrinth has only one path leading to the centre and back.

Each time a person walks the labyrinth, it is an individual and personal experience. The 180 degree turns, that are an integral part of the path through the labyrinth, are thought to alternate awareness between the left and right sides of the brain, inducing receptive states of consciousness. The time spent at the centre of each labyrinth can be a reflective and meditative experience, or a means of exploring personal inner space.
