Product description

Mysterious and alluring, labyrinths have been in use for over 4,000 years as a means of exploring one's spiritual journey, searching for meaning and guidance. The labyrinth is a universal or 'one-path' design - not like a maze, where there are decisions to be made and you can be tricked - but a path laid out before you, much like our own spiritual paths, to which we must surrender, following God's guidance. Christian labyrinths date back to the 4th century (in Algeria), although the most famous instances came later (e.g. Chartres in the 13th century). Recent years have seen a revival of interest in this practice as a powerful physical recreation of the inner life. This small format hardback book - illustrated with labyrinths from different designs, locations and ages - is an inspiring, meditative guide to this ancient and modern spiritual practice.
