Walking a Sacred Path

Rediscovering the Labyrinth as a Spiritual Practice



Lauren Artress reintroduces the ancient labyrinth, a walking meditation  that trancends the limits of still meditation, and shows us the possibilities it brings for renewal and change.

'Walking the Labyrinth' has reemerged today as a metaphor for the spiritual journey and a powerful tool for transformation. This walking meditation is an archetype, a mystical ritual found in all religious traditions. It quiets the mind and opens the soul. Walking a Sacred Path explores the historical origins of this divine imprint and shares the discoveries of modern day seekers. It shows us the potential of the Labyrinth to inspire change and renewal, and serves as a guide to help us develop the higher level of human awareness we need to survive in the twenty-first century.

Praise for Walking a Sacred Path

"The Labyrinth inspires in the people who have come to walk along its sinuous, painted path a palpable mix of solemnity and joy." —The New York Times "The Labyrinth turns the simple act of walking into a sacred experience." —Gnosis "As you follow a winding path for twenty minutes or so, you might cry tears of grief or joy, solve the riddle of a messed-up family or work life, feel better about an illness, or gain spiritual insight." —Los Angeles Times "Part of the fun of reading Walking a Sacred Path is to feel 'the great dignity of the symbol,' regardless of one's own religious background." —San Francisco Chronicle Book Review "Lauren Artress is one of the pioneers of the renaissance of Western spirituality." —China Galland, author of Women in the Wilderness
