Construction begins on a new walking labyrinth in the garden at The Horse Shoe Farm outside Asheville.
Built on the grounds adjacent to The Magnolia Manor at The Horse Shoe Farm, the labyrinth is designed as a meditative journey to facilitate transmutation and healing. Non-traditional in form, the labyrinth snakes back and forth across the garden, until you reach the center. Once arriving upon the center, let the answers from your spirt collide seamlessly with one of the most stunning views on the property.
Over 900 linear feet of bricks create the path that is the journey of the labyrinth. The bricks are repurposed after being scattered all over the property for decades in a true example of recycling goods and energy.
If you’re asking yourself “What is a labyrinth?”
“The labyrinth is a walking meditation, a path of prayer and an archetypal blueprint where psyche meets Spirit. It has only one path that leads from the outer edge in a circuitous way to the center. There are no tricks to it and no dead ends. Unlike a maze where you lose your way, the labyrinth is a spiritual tool that can help you find your way.” (https://www.veriditas.org/New-to-the-Labyrinth)
Set your intention
Before you start down the labyrinth path it’s important to set your intention. Stand at the beginning of it and close your eyes. Take a deep breath and set an intention and/or ask a question for your journey. Walk the path in silence and listen to the thoughts and feelings that come to you along the way. When you get to the center… pause. Take in your surroundings and breath. Spend as much time as you need before you walk the same path back out. When you get to the end, undoubtedly, the energy you put towards your intention and/or question will provide you with the fuel to see/feel the answers you are searching for.
