For the last couple of years I have been walking a full size recreation of the Chartres Cathedral Labyrinth that is recreated on the floor of the Peterborough, NH Town House. It’s a great way to start off a new year and reflect upon the old.
A Labyrinth is not a maze, there is single path to the center, there are no dead ends and nothing to solve. The act of purposeful walking calms the mind by causing a temporary suspension of left brain activity.
The Chartres labyrinth even looks a bit like a brain with a stem, right and left lobes and a few interconnections.
The Peterborough Labyrinth is created by volunteers using cutouts and black tape. The original is constructed of stone in France on the floor of the Chartres Cathedral.
