Seeking Peace and Tranquility?
 
Calm and Transform Your Spirit
at the Labyrinth

No Appointment Necessary

 
The Labyrinth is a spiritual tool whose ultimate purpose remains what it always has been - a way to encounter the Holy.  It Transcends all religions and dogmas and outdistances all cultures and ideologies.
 
Our labyrinth is patterned after one at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.  They are the 11 circuit type like the one built in the Chartres Cathedral in France during the Middle Ages.
 
Why walk the Labyrinth?
 
To gain mental and spiritual centering, to calm and transform your spirit.  Your walk to the center may bring healing or lighten your load.  It is not a maze.  You cannot get lost.  A labyrinth has one way in and one way out.  There is no right or wrong way to walk it.
 
You will find the walk to the center of the labyrinth very therapeutic.  Walkers find that it can lower stress and boost creativity.  Others claim that it is a place for answers to prayer and insights.  Spend some time in the center; meditate, listen to the Divine who loves within you.
 
What you, the first-time or many-times walker, must make, is your own unique discovery, whatever it is and it may be different each time you walk it!  No one can tell you for sure what you will find.
 
Located outdoors to the south of the church building, the Labyrinth is set apart in a quiet place. Here is an opportunity for you to let go of the distractions of life, center yourself and feel the presence of God and all the while enjoy the silence and beauty of the desert.
 
Just beyond the labyrinth is our Palm Oasis.  It is a peaceful place to continue your inward journey.

Labyrinth Guidelines
  • Prior to entering the labyrinth stop to center yourself.  
  • If someone is on the path ahead of you allow sufficient distance between the two of you before you enter.  
  • Upon reaching the center sit, stand, Dance!  
  • It is your time, your walk.  
  • Remember there is no right way or wrong way to do it; just your way.
When you are ready, walk out of the labyrinth and go in Peace.
