Walking the Labyrinth
First Universalist’s Labyrinth is located in the Social Hall. Each month from September through May, we offer an open walk from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month. You are welcome to arrive any time between 6:30 and 8 p.m., depending on how long you wish to be on the Labyrinth. Walk at your own pace, and stay as long or short as you like. Allow at least 15 minutes minimum for a full fast walk. A member of the Labyrinth Circle will be available to answer questions and offer guidance. For more information, contact: Anne Hobbs, 763-546-3337 or email@example.com.

Special Option: Finger Labyrinths
The Labyrinth Circle has two wooden finger labyrinths to share with church members at times of need, especially when it is not possible to walk the labyrinth at church. Constructed of cherry and maple wood, they are a beautiful presence that can serve as reminders of the community that cares for you. The committee has also created laminated labyrinths for church members who are unable to come to church. Contact: Ann Hobbs, 763-546-3337 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“This winter, I have been using a laminated finger labyrinth as a regular morning practice. Tracing the path of the labyrinth with the eraser end of a pencil works best for me. I follow the pattern of the labyrinth twice, first with my writing hand, the second time, with my non-dominant hand. For those of us who have a hard time quieting our minds, following a pattern like the labyrinth is very effective. Even as it becomes familiar, the twists and turns calm and quiet us. The advantages of a finger labyrinth are its easy availability and the relatively short commitment of time. Daily practice with the labyrinth provides an effective entry into a meditative state.” — Monica Tahibnapis
