Labyrinth Walk...Sacred Spiral to illuminate the Inner Path
For some 4000 years, circular and spiral paths have been used as decoration and art. The Labyrinth has also been a mythical symbol of wholeness used in ancient Greek, Cretan, Italian, Egyptian, and Christian times.
As a symbol of wholeness, the ancient practice of circling-to-the-center by walking the labyrinth was fundamental to many cultures and spiritual traditions. As a spiritual tool, the labyrinth is a metaphorical model of the purposeful pathway of life or a spiritual journey to the inner path.
Walking the Labyrinth is many things to many people. It is a walking meditation, it stills and clears the mind to give insight. It is a prayer circle, It calms people in the throes of life’s transitions. It is a pilgrimage to the inner-self and the god-head within.
There is a hidden Labyrinth at Eagle’s Point, constructed by local San Francisco artist Eduardo Aguilera. This Labyrinth at Land’s End is one of the most spectacular vistas in San Francisco, overlooking the water’s expanse to the Golden Gate Bridge.
