Tracing the labyrinth path is an ancient meditation form often described as a path to wisdom and peace. Cradle the labyrinth in one hand and run a fingertip along the grooved path with the other.
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.
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.
Lovely for a quiet corner, the small size will appeal to young children, who may place it on a table or other flat surface to trace. Made of pewter-plated metal; 4" dia. Includes drawstring bag, color may vary. Ages 4 and up.
