Walking the labyrinth is an individual journey. As the paths spiral inwards towards the centre the person may experience a slowing down and a sense of peace. 
One of the most intriguing and engaging aspects of the labyrinth; that it helps to reconnect us, somehow with our great unfolding story - the story of humanity, spirituality, theology,quests, belief, wonder, doubt, penitance journey................... p007 4 00 81
