A Pilgrimage to the Chartres Labyrinth: Presentation, discussion and guided meditation
November 5, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Chartres Cathedral Labyrinth in France is the best persevered medieval labyrinth of the 80 labyrinths built in 11th and 12th century Europe. Pilgrimage was very important in medieval Europe and Chartres was a major stop for pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Pilgrimage is again popular in our time as a way to find guidance, inner connection and meaning in our lives. The meandering labyrinth is an ideal place for reflection and meditation.
Please join Patricia Newton (labyrinth facilitator, member of the Trinity Labyrinth Guild and Labyrinth Network Northwest) for a free presentation about her recent pilgrimage to Chartres and a discussion of labyrinths and pilgrimage. There will be a guided meditation and quiet time for you to consider the pilgrimages in your own life.
The beautiful Trinity Chartres style labyrinth in Trinity Episcopal Cathedral’s Kempton Hall will be open for a personal reflective pre-election day walk from 11 a.m. until 1:45 p.m. prior to the presentation.
