The Labyrinth Around America labyrinth has made what will probably be its last “off grid” outing for this leg of its long journey – at Loyola Retreat and Ecology Campus, Woodstock, IL, the venue for this year’s The Labyrinth Society Gathering.
Following a grey day, the sun shone for its appearance, and the labyrinth felt at home on the moist lawn outside this fabulous center. The cold and clouds returned soon after the labyrinth had been packed back into my rental car.
But no one walked? NO! This was not meant to be, as I’d laid the labyrinth out for some energetic work for the Center, the Society (looking forward to its next 20 years) and beyond.
In truth, one person did ask whether the labyrinth was open for walking, which I suggested was good if they felt led to (though the intention for its presence here was quickly understood).
Here too, the labyrinth was sited for the first time using the Dowsing Rods that came to me following a workshop by the brilliant dowser Marty Cain – powerfully indicating that the labyrinth should be laid out and where.
Close by, the fabulous Sedona redsand “sister” travelling labyrinth of the amazing Janice Lewis had welcomed walkers who’d attended my short presentation earlier in the day.
Along with its two companions on the journey, the final (?) appearance for the labyrinth on this leg, offered me an opportunity for reflection, thanking, and closing, before continuining its journey in its winter home in Pennsylvania, and, God Willing, back on the road with me early next year.
