Labyrinth Creation – Three weekends in May, 2019
During May, we will be constructing a Labyrinth up in the vicinity of the Centre of the Universe, Place of Life. The first three weekends in May encompass the New Moon to the Full Moon, the perfect time to start a project and bring it to fruition.
May 4th is the convergence of the New Moon and World Labyrinth Day. While many use this day to find a labyrinth and walk it in synchronicity with participants around the world, we find it to be a happy coincidence for the start of our Labyrinth build.
May 4th & 5th:
We will have an opening ceremony up at the site and set our intention for the Labyrinth before we begin work. We anticipate this first weekend to be focused on gathering rocks and preparing the area. Our progress will depend on how many volunteers come up to help.
May 11th & 12th:
The second weekend of the project, where we will pick up where we left off and forge onward.
This is the Full Moon. We hope to be finished by the close of the day so that we can have a dedication ceremony and walk the Labyrinth in the evening under the Full Moon. Moonrise is 5:11pm, so we will have the ceremony from 7-9 after supper.
Ideally, volunteers would arrive either Friday night, or early Saturday for a 9am start. Saturday lunch will be provided and a vegetarian main plus salads for Saturday night will be provided as well – those who wish to, feel free to bring a dish for Saturday night dinner. BBQ is available for those who want to cook some meat.
For volunteers able to stay and work Sunday, lunch will also be provided.
Free accommodations for volunteers will be provided, according to availability, for those who bring their own bedding. For those volunteers who work all of the dates scheduled for creating this Labyrinth, we will offer free accommodation for the remainder of the May long weekend.
Please RSVP as soon as possible so that we know how many need a bed and lunch/dinner. Further details on what you need to bring will be provided to those volunteers who RSVP.

Past special events:
In June, 2018, we were blessed to host the convergence of two very special groups who work tirelessly on behalf of this planet and all who live here.
They came together deliberately to be on this Sacred Land – The Place of Life, Centre of the Universe – to influence the healing of earth and water.
We look forward to seeing you at the Centre of the Universe soon!
