Lenten Reflections 2023 Part Five ~ The LabyrinthLARCC
Facilitated by Sue Ballotti and Paul Craig ~ Hosted by Mary and Joseph Retreat Center
Solvitur Ambulando -- This is a Latin phrase often attributed to St Augustine and used to describe the benefits of walking and using motion to clear the mind. Prayer in motion is an ancient form of prayer, and the labyrinth walking pattern was common across civilizations for more than 4,000 years. Physical movement connects body, mind and spirit and can be a powerful way of praying. We will introduce forms of prayer-in-motion, with particular reliance on the labyrinth – history, purpose, and creative ways to put labyrinth walks into our prayer practice.
