Slow Time

I had slow time in a labyrinth today — a stunning 11-circuit Chartres -style labyrinth under coastal oaks and Italian pines. Entering slow time means that one leaves all the daily cares and dashing around at the entrance of the path. Walking the labyrinth services contemplatives in many ways. For me, it meant dumping some baggage along the way and recharging my spiritual batteries.


A natural stone fountain.


A stone platform at the center.

Other visitors had left pine cones, stones, and coins on the center stone.   To mark my passage through the labyrinth, I left some purple jacaranda petals.

Labyrinth I: In the Belly of the Earth

Cave Labyrinth“In the Belly of the Earth” (12″ x 18″ Digital Construction)

Lately, I have been reading much about labyrinths.  The earliest known labyrinths were often carved into stone.  No one knows why.  I felt compelled to create one of my own.  I don’t know why either.
