Use your finger to trace the path to the centre of the labyrinth, as you centre yourself.
This version features a classical 7 circuit labyrinth marked in silver on black gloss.
The surface is smooth for ease of use.
The Concept of Labyrinth Walking:
Labyrinths have been in use for over 4000 years.
Their basic design is fundamental to nature and many cultures and religious traditions, there are several famous labyrinths in cathedrals across the world.
They are not mazes; there is only one way in and one way out.
Whatever religion or spiritual path you are following, walking a labyrinth clears and focuses the mind.
The idea is to concentrate on your journey toward the centre, circling inward physically and mentally, while contemplating either a question that is troubling you, a prayer or mantra, or simply emptying the mind of troubling thoughts.
Then allow yourself some time to be still in the centre, before exiting the labyrinth and returning to 'the world'.
Although traditionally one walks a labyrinth, tracing a finger around the path can produce much the same meditative state.
The inspiration for making the labyrinth is the Greek myth of Ariadne helping Theseus to defeat the Minotaur. To stop him becoming lost in the maze, she gave him a spool of thread to find his way back out. These labyrinths have only one way in and one way out, in reference to the myth.
