January 2019: "Turning Points"

"Turning Points" is the theme for our
Creative Path Walk in January 2019.
We live a circular life, with our plans and goals adapting, curving, and turning.
How do we best set a course forward, chart a path, and step into action?
Can we stay adaptable so that we might turn on a dime when that’s needed?
To everything there is a season, and we just keep evolving.
This installation features the mandala art work of Ansula Press.

Large-scale walking patterns have captivated humans for thousands of years. Here at Cerimon House, we see the labyrinth as a signature image for our work in the community, especially during these times of dramatic change in the world. This unique path is a pleasing way to focus, and move forward. Our walking pattern is a 33 foot adaptation of the historic design from Reims, France. Similar to a large-scale compass, our attendees enjoy walking on this floor pattern to focus, unplug, restore, and recalibrate. Unlike mazes (which are designed to amaze-or-confuse) you can't get lost on a labyrinth as they are “unicursal”, which means there is always a way forward and an arrival point at the center.

The Creative Path Walk experience takes 30 minutes total, and “booking a walk” is a nice way to choose your walking time. (Half hour slots are available from 12 noon to 4:00pm for pre-booking.) Walk-ins (between 12 noon to 4:00pm) are also welcome, and there is usually no more than a ten minute wait in that case, and it’s enjoyable & restful to watch from above in our balcony, as well.

* Our labyrinth is a shoe-free zone, so please do wear comfy socks.

* Our building is indeed climate controlled.

* The experience is contemplative, and is recommended for those age 9 and up.

* Happily, it is a cellphone and camera-free zone.

* After your walk, we encourage you to stay with us : to sip tea and decompress.

The monthly event is open to the public, and donations are most welcome, as the proceeds benefit all of our nonprofit organization's
programming and community offerings, including this activity.
