Labyrinth Workshops Ι One Path, Many Journeys with Canon Karen Curnock

Tuesday 18 May and Saturday 22 May – both at 10am on the Cathedral Green

A labyrinth is not a maze. This workshop offers an opportunity to explore and ponder your inner landscape as you tread a path with no concern about finding the right way. To walk the labyrinth is to follow a one-way route into the centre and then to retrace the same route back to where you started. The journey inwards and the journey outwards though can feel completely different; you may find some clarity to a difficult situation in the simple act of placing one foot in front of the other. The physicality of walking can help to focus our attention on the inner landscape. However many times we walk the labyrinth we are in a different place on each occasion and can experience it differently each time. Come and see if following the labyrinth path can help you on your journey.

Karen Curnock is an Anglican priest who retired to East Devon in 2010. She lives just a hundred yards from a full-sized Chartres style labyrinth on a clifftop overlooking Lyme Bay and has walked this on many a moonlit evening with others from a local multi-faith group. This and walking other labyrinths over the years prompted her to delve further into the use of the labyrinth as a spiritual exercise. As with all spiritual exercises there is no expert to say what is right or wrong, only guides to help us on the way.

There will be 12 places on each workshop. Please book a place so as not to be disappointed.
