This is a great option for anyone who wants to know more about walking labyrinths and the ways they are employed as a spiritual and personal development tool. Before beginning your walk, you will have time with a trained Labyrinth Facilitator to discuss any or all of:
- history of labyrinths and context for their modern-day uses
- significance of different types of labyrinth patterns
- general orientation to walking a labyrinth
- any particular reasons or matters that have brought you to the labyrinth
- suggestions for particular activities or exercises to add meaning to your walk
You will be left to as much time as you wish for your walk, and whatever post-walk reflection period you would like. Your Labyrinth Facilitator will usually have started a fire in the labyrinth firebowl and will be available if you wish to share/discuss/explore your experience.

Wear whatever is comfortable. Some people enjoy walking the labyrinth barefoot on the soft bed of pine needles, though their resin may stick to your feet. Consider bringing a journal and pen to jot any reflections after your walk. Download the Forest Labyrinth Visitor Guide.
