Come set your intentions for the new year
February 5, 2015, 6:30-8:30pm
Rescheduled from January, the UU Women’s Association will host a Labyrinth Walk on Thursday, February 5 from 6:30-8:30 pm. Entering a New Year brings us opportunity to clear away what is no longer useful to us and embrace the new. Join us for a Labyrinth Walk and set your intentions for the New Year. The Labyrinth will be hosted at the UU Church of Akron, 3300 Morewood Rd, Fairlawn, across from Summit Mall.
Labyrinth walking in an ancient practice used by many different faiths for spiritual centering, contemplation and prayer. Entering the serpentine path of a labyrinth, the walker walks slowly while quieting their mind and focusing on a spiritual question or prayer. As the path is traveled the mind is quiet and often answers become clear.
During the walk Rebekah Benner and Mark Phillips, Labyrinth musicians will provide “Esoterically Eclectic Musical Meanderings”, using an array of musical instruments; flutes, drums, rattles, crystal bowls, chimes, and the amazingly soothing metal Hang. You are welcome to join in the music before or after your walking meditation. Extra instruments are provided, or bring your own. There will be gently guided suggestions to keep the music soothing and provide a walking beat. Please wear socks. No shoes are worn on the Labyrinth.
