Indianapolis walks labyrinth for peace

Posted by Ryan Hall

Several dedicated journeyers gathered to walk six labyrinths in the Indianapolis area all on the same afternoon. The tour was organized by the Rivoli Park Labyrinth (www.facebook.com/rplabyrinth). We did this labyrinth to labyrinth tour on the International Day of Peace, Sunday, September 21st, 2014. We started at the labyrinth behind the Indiana Interchurch Center and then we traveled nearby to the labyrinth at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis. We then visited a new labyrinth near Fall Creek full of wildflowers. Next, we walked a labyrinth on the grounds of Methodist Hospital. We were going to end our tour at the Rivoli Park Labyrinth, but then we were invited to a private labyrinth in someone’s backyard.

This tour brought peace to the participants as we noticed the flow of water, the work of pollinators on the flowers, and the orientation of rocks in and around the labyrinths that we walked. We felt honored to be in each other’s presence for several hours and to feel the earth beneath our feet. Pausing to reflect as we walked and in the center of these labyrinths brought us deep insights and connections. In all these ways, we celebrated peace through this tour. We trust that vibrations of our time together positively effected peace throughout the universe.
