Publisher Comments:

An inspiring, meditative guide to an ancient spiritual practice with renewed modern interest

 

This gorgeous book—illustrated with pictures of labyrinths from different designs, locations, and ages is dedicated to unearthing the mystery of this ancient obsession. Mysterious and alluring, labyrinths have been in use for more than 4,000 years as a means of exploring one's spiritual journey and searching for meaning and guidance. The labyrinth is a unicursal or "one-path" design—not like a maze, where there are decisions to be made and one can be tricked—but a path laid out before a person much like their own spiritual path, a path to which they must surrender, following God's guidance. Christian labyrinths date back to Algeria in the fourth century, although the most famous instances came later, such as Chartres in the 13th century. Recent years have seen a revival of interest in this practice as a powerful physical recreation of the inner life.
