The October Walk: "Light & Shadow"


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 square adaptation of the historic design from Reims, France. Similar to a large-scale compass, our attendees enjoy walking on the 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: there is always a way forward and an arrival point at the center. 

Theme: “Light & Shadow” is everywhere to be seen in the autumn: creating a duality, a spectrum, a balance. And this particular Creative Path Walk honors the aspects of those visual variances. There is the sense of the “veil’ being quite thin at this time of year, and these time changes (both dawn and dusk), prepare us for a historic and essential election = in which illumination longs to prevail.
