« Halloween at North Fresno Church | Main | 20th anniversary: my first U2 concert »

November 14, 2007


Tim, do you have much experience of the "original" labyrinth? I had done that several times before experiencing the "Prayer Path" at a Group event (a parish where I used to work hosted one that was open to the public all Monday nights). In comparison, I found the Prayer Path rather agenda-driven and head-y, and I was visually discomfited by all the straight lines and hard corners compared to the fluidity of the Chartres "original."

It was a good experience for me, but not much like walking a labyrinth.
However, I could see how the P. Path could be a great tool as a structured series of prayer stations esp for people who are not used to contemplative methods and need more content -- more like Stations of the Cross, perhaps?

(have been out of town, catching up on blog reading)

I still have so many fond memories of the 3 Prayer Path experiences I was able to be a part of. I really think that we are all becoming so driven by experience and this can be such a vital tool to experiencing what Christ has for us.
