Walking the Labyrinth in Indianapolis

We had a wonderful celebration for ‪#‎PeaceDay‬ at the Rivoli Park Labyrinth ‪(#‎rplabyrinth) in Indianapolis, IN‬. Several dozen people…about 36 in total, including children from four different schools, all communed. We had a visit from two neighborhood police officers that joined in with walking the labyrinth. The flowers and animals also joined in the celebration with the blooming of the hibiscus and visits from butterflies, kittens, a large poodle and even a toad (who we decorated a home for from a broken pot a day later). People ate ice cream and cookies and got to know each other and experienced walking a labyrinth and being with wildlife in this urban setting. It was a peaceful celebration for all that participated and it promoted community, appreciation of nature and inner calm.
