Details

A labyrinth, unlike a maze, has only one path. It is unicursal – the way in is the way out. Labyrinths crafted from a variety of materials can be found in many sizes and shapes. Versions are used by schools, churches, hospitals, and businesses to calm the mind, revitalize the spirit, enhance problem solving, build community, and aid in stress reduction and healing.

Because labyrinths are right-brain activity enhancers, tracing a labyrinth path is calming for adults and children. They are commonly used as a tool for personal reflection, psychological and spiritual transformation, and comfort.
