Allegan Labyrinth (photos)

Updated: May 26

Here are a few good photos of the Allegan Labyrinth at Rossman Park: A beautiful new place for healing, reflection and learning. “Where can you seek healing of the mind, body, and spirit? Where can you go to become centered and strengthened as you confront a chronic disease? How can you emotionally prepare for surgery? Where can you get the strength to support others through illness? How do individuals look deeply into themselves and gain helpful insights? Where can you go to celebrate life? Where can you have a ritual of remembrance? Where can you find a needed peaceful moment? Where can you learn about the journey of life and where you are in the process? The answer is in a labyrinth. The process of mindfully walking a labyrinth can bring aid or answers to all these concerns. “A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that represents wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. It looks like a maze but is not. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has no dead-ends. You cannot get lost. You just follow the path to the center and out again. You walk a labyrinth to learn its lessons. The labyrinth symbolizes a transformative journey to your own center and back out into the world. Labyrinths occur in all cultures and have long been used as tools for meditation, centering, and healing. Labyrinths bring people together on the common path of life.”
