Unity of The Blue Ridge is home to a beautiful outdoor labyrinth created in the Classic Labyrinth style, the oldest labyrinth design known in the world, dating back to at least 3500 BCE. This CommUnity Labyrinth is open to anyone in the community and is wheelchair accessible. Dedicated in September 2009, our 7-path Labyrinth is 50' diameter, with a hard pack white gravel surface between rows of bricks, for easy access for people walking or in a wheelchair. Through volunteer labor and membership donations, our labyrinth has grown to include benches, landscaping, and birdhouses, all designed to create a place of peace to connect with Spirit and nature.
Walking a Labyrinth (one suggestion … not the only way!)
Pause at the entrance to the labyrinth for a moment of silent reflection. Enter the labyrinth and breathe smoothly. As you make your way to the center, you may choose one of the following activities:
1. Allow your mind to quiet
2. Pray for yourself or someone else
3. Keep a question in mind and notice how the question feels in your body and emotions
If you are interested in being part of the upkeep of the Labyrinth, please contact the church office at 828.891.8700.
