The Springs Labyrinth sits beside the sulphur spring-fed brook, connected to the walk to the village of Clifton Springs. The public is free to walk or dance or play on the path at any time. The Labyrinth is closed during the winter and reopens April 1.
The labyrinth is an ancient symbol. Remnants more than 6000 years old have been found in Sardinia. It was used by the Hopi, the Celts, and the Greeks, and is prominent in many Christian churches built in the Middle Ages. The labyrinth has served as a metaphor for our lives that creates a sacred space and place. Many cultures use it as a tool for meditation or prayer.
The labyrinth is a meandering but purposeful path, for focusing, for looking for that deep knowledge that comes from finding our own center. It is an archetype for change, for transformation and wholeness. It fosters serenity and self-knowledge. It can be enjoyed in a myriad of ways...for walking, for moving meditation, for dancing, for ceremony. You enter and walk the labyrinth at whatever pace fits your need. For many, the center represents one's own center, a place of peace and balance. After time spent in the center, you retrace your steps back out into the world. The circle of the labyrinth can be used to reach into our deepest places, to those places that need healing from sadness and hurt, and it can be used to remember the circular nature of our joys and our sorrows.
