On June 20th, the East Bay Labyrinth Project will be celebrating the Summer Solstice, Father’s Day, and progress made toward building an 11-Circuit Labyrinth at the Berkeley Marina. There will be the building of a temporary labyrinth prior to the event, a creative introduction at 3 p.m. with musical invocation by world musician Alan Tower, facilitation by integrative counselor (and singer/songwriter) Margie Adam, a song led by folksinger Nancy Schimmel, a casual joining together of folks, and the walk itself. Please arrive promptly by 3 p.m. if you want to hear the program before the walk!
We’ve been engaged in hosting public labyrinth walks for several years (check out www.eastbaylabyrinthproject.org), typically attracting a crowd of fifty or more. We are planning additional events for the summer (a labyrinth constructed on a beach in August, a poetry labyrinth walk), and community group use of the temporary labyrinth at the Berkeley Marina after the Summer Solstice through mid-July.
Ideas for community-led group labyrinth walks include parents interested in sharing something unique with their kids, creativity sessions where walking the labyrinth gives focus, a special nighttime gathering for singles, youth interested in a leadership event space, spiritual groups, people interested in a day of healing, dialogue-sharing for groups working out their differences on issues, etc. If you know of interested groups, we can jointly develop a program with them. For a taste of what we’ve done in the past, check out our videos on vimeo (http://vimeo.com/videos/search:berkeley%20labyrinth). You can also contact us at email@example.com.
