The labyrinth


A labyrinth may seem like a maze, but there are no dead ends; just one route in and out again. Walking the labyrinth provides an opportunity to still the mind. It is a form of meditation. Read the section on meditation before doing this. Then use the same techniques of focusing on your breathing to still your mind while you walk. You need a large labyrinth to actually walk through it, but you can also 'walk' a labyrinth with your finger. Start on the outside and 'walk' your finger through to the middle and out again.
