Labyrinth Dreamings at NUC
Sunday, February 21, 2016 at 3:44PM


The labyrinth is an ancient Christian contemplative tradition.  Over the
last six months, a small group at NUC has been carefully considering the
installation of a labyrinth on site as a place of contemplation, meditation
and healing.  The inspiration for this project has been inspired by two very
dear women to us, Jo Brandt and Wendy Eccleston, who both dreamed of
building a labyrinth on the NUC site for all to experience.
In December 2015, to mark the Summer Solstice, we met and offered an
opportunity to the wider community to participate in walking a temporary
labyrinth.  Unfortunately due to the wet weather this had to be held indoors
but was still a wonderful opportunity to experience what it is like to
undertake the meditative walk as well as 'ask the earth' which direction our
permanent labyrinth should face.
The Summer Solstice labyrinth walk offered us a time pause and reflect, to
let go of what is no longer needed, to set new intentions and to celebrate
and feel grateful.
Fiona has recently been visiting Warrandyte Uniting Church peace mural,
labyrinth and gardens and offers these images as inspiration for the
possibilities at NUC.
