Full Moon Labyrinth Walk
Join us for a Full Moon Labyrinth Walk on Mercy by the Sea’s seven-circuit labyrinth, with breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound. Labyrinths have been around for over 4000 years and are found in just about every major religious tradition in the world. They have been an integral part of many cultures such as Native American, Greek, Celtic and Mayan. The Hopi called the labyrinth the symbol for "mother earth" and equated it with the Kiva. Like Stonehenge and the pyramids, they are magical geometric forms that define sacred space.
Labyrinths are truly sacred places. The design itself is inherently powerful. The space and the experience of walking it are also very sacred and powerful and help us feel a greater sense of Oneness. It is a tool for people of all beliefs to come together for a common spiritual experience.
Please wear comfortable outdoor clothing, bring a flashlight and check in at our front desk when you arrive. We gather for a brief introduction to the labyrinth and centering prayer before viewing the moon rise and walking the labyrinth. We then reconvene after the walk to share a comfortable cup of tea and to process our experience.
We gather in Lyons Chapel for prayer and then head out to walk the Labyrinth. If you would like to register on the day of a labyrinth walk, please call to complete your registration.
Free will offering appreciated for the upkeep of the labyrinth.
