Whether you're reading this on your phone, or your laptop what you're looking at is a screen. Without looking up, how many different colors surround you? Now check to see how accurate you were. Next, think of how many notifications you have waiting, and the number of unread emails. Now, check those. Were you more aware of what was on your screen, than the color that surrounds you?
Notifications alert us to business-related responsibilities and social media-driven likes. They tell us what's important now. They also screen out the rest of what surrounds us. I've been thinking about how to counter the way our attention is pulled towards certain things and away from others. This session will explore labyrinth walking as a way to remember and pay attention to what's most important to us.

What will you learn or experience as a result of this program or session?
  • Participants will spend time reflecting. We'll talk about what we already do to live from a place where what we hold dear is more important than any notification.
  • We'll consider what gets in the way of finding and keeping perspective amid so much distraction--Covid-19 driven and otherwise--and share practices that help. 
  • We'll look at labyrinth walking as a resource that allows our intuitive and creative selves to remember what's most dear. The last 15 minutes of the session will be spent "walking" a finger labyrinth.

How might the content of this program or session change your perceptions, habits, ways of working, or view on the world?
  • Walking a labyrinth supports our ability to be mindful and look at problems creatively.
  • Labyrinth walking is calming and can help reduce stress and anxiety.
  • Walking a labyrinth helps you redirect your energies so you can live a richer life.

How might you apply what you learn or experience in this program or session?
  • There are hundreds of labyrinths in the country, perhaps thousands throughout the world. Folks will leave with a working sense of how to use them to inspire change and renewal in their lives.
