Celebration of the Vernal Equinox & the Re-birth of the Earth & Nature using the labyrinth, art, and music. Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitators: Pamela Martino and Theresa Stephens. (http://www.artsbridgeonline.org/labyrinth_project.htm)

The labyrinth is an ancient pattern found in many cultures around the world. Labyrinth designs were found on pottery, tablets and tiles date as far back as 4000 years. Many patterns are based on spirals from nature. In Native American culture it is called the Medicine Wheel and Man in the Maze. The Celts described it as the Never Ending Circle. It is also called the Kabala in mystical Judaism. One feature they all share is that they have one path which winds in a circuitous way to the center. Labyrinths are currently being used world-wide as a way to quiet the mind, find balance,and encourage meditation, insight and celebration. They are open to all people as a non-denominational, cross-cultural tool of well-being. They can be found in medical centers, parks, churches, schools, prisons, memorial parks and retreat centers as well as in people’s backyards. (http://www.veriditas.net/)
