stroll with your soul

Life is a constant traveling in the labyrinth, arriving and moving on, finding one's way to the center and then leaving it, having to turn but proceeding into the path ahead.  - Gernot Candolini


St Stephen's has a very nice canvas labyrinth, currently out in Community Hall for your meditative walking. It's a great way to contemplate the twists and turns of life. Here are some suggestions from “A Stroll with your Soul: A Guided Prayer-Walk” by Richard Hasler.


Look up: a prayerful walk begins solemnly

Look down: know that you need to be well-grounded

Look back: every journey toward something is a journey away from something else.

Look around: at all of your gifts and life's possibilities – to roads not yet taken, roads less traveled, to hard roads that lead to change and challenge

Look ahead: the walk takes you back to the beginning, and out to the world.


Consider using these meditative thoughts, whether you are walking the labyrinth or walking the neighborhood. Make walking a spiritual practice this Lent.


Peace, Jeannie
