Learning from Labyrinths
It is widely known that labyrinths are places for contemplative journeys and meditation. They also are powerful tools for the facilitation of creative transformation.
Our friend and colleague Joe Miguez spent the last decades of his life working with and sharing labyrinth experiences around the world. He focused on the architectural principles of “the lab” to design accessible labyrinth-based creativity tools.
Working with those tools, we will open our awareness and explore the spaces where ideas emerge. By developing attention, we will cultivate self-discovery and action-producing intention.
To quote Joe, we will “slow down so that we can go faster”.
The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session
- Make a journey through a simplified version of the labyrinth called the four square
- Experience the labyrinth path as a mapping of the change process
- Remember what you already know
