What is a Labyrinth?
According the Merriam-Wesbster dictionary, a labyrinth is “a confusing and complicated arrangement of passages and difficult to understand.”
Nothing could be further from the truth. With any labyrinth, you walk a single path only. This is not a maze in which you can get lost, but a winding path along which you walk with quiet intention and experience “presence”. After reaching the center, you can stay as long as you want, silently and contemplatively. Now you begin your outward journey with openness and expectancy, releasing any negative emotions or confusion in your life.
There is no singular purpose or outcome for walking the labyrinth. There is really no right or wrong way to walk the path. The only REAL criteria is to be open to the experence. If anyone doubts that a labyrinth can be captivating, the proof is in the experience itself. It is truly a walking meditation. Continued walking of the labyrinth and consequent awareness of being in the “now” can help you to grow and expand while connecting with your inner intentions and maturing them into reality.
About Our Labyrinth
Kingsley’s Labyrinth was inspired by and dedicated to Master Kingsley Larsen, the property owners’ grandson who lives in Denver, Colorado. Kingsley has a rare condition of children’s epilepsy and has spent countless months at the Denver Children’s Hospital. It is there where his mother and grandmother walked the hospital’s labyrinth and learned to appreciate the calming effects of each meditative walk.
The labyrinth is located on the historical Val Vista ranch in the Springbank, Alberta ranching country. It was created by the RiverCross Ranch Team and many volunteers who donated their loving hands and hearts to make this labyrinth a beauftiful path in which to travel.
