Publisher’s description:

The follow-up to Praying the Labyrinth, Living the Labyrinth takes labyrinth users to the next plateau, encouraging them to expand the ways to explore the labyrinth, in brief, devotional-like chapters that may be used however the reader chooses — because, as Jill reminds us, there is not just one “right” way to live the labyrinth. The labyrinth has enriched the lives of spiritual seekers in ways that embody the love and wisdom of God. The more often the labyrinth is explored, the more one comes to appreciate the many possibilities it has to offer. With a foreword by labyrinth designer Robert Ferré, this book will inspire readers to discover the labyrinth’s abundant gifts again and again.

Selection from Embodied Explorations:


Find our what happens
If you try to walk the labyrinth
With your eyes shut.

If you are walking on a canvas labyrinth,
Take off your shoes and socks.
As you slowly proceed,
Try to perceive the edges of the path.

If you are walking on a labyrinth with grass
or other natural path markers,
Use them as your guides.

What you learn about how to proceed
May be more important than arriving at your destination.”
