May Walk: "Destinations & Arrivals'

“Destinations & Arrivals” is the theme for
our Creative Path Walk in May 2019.

We have all traveled great distances, and revel in the safety of recognizable harbors.
The journey is a remarkable trek full of maps, goals, treasures, and questions. There are vistas to see and to sense.
There are the times of planned destinations, and the memories of unknown paths, and yet we never cease to arrive in kindly ports, and delight in how we may have gotten there.

Special May 2019 Dates:
[Sunday, May 19th - and - Monday, May 20th]
These times are a departure from our usual weekend dates,
but we do so hope you will join us on this special Sunday and Monday offering.

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.
