This is a revised and updated introduction to the ancient, revitalising art of walking meditation. 'Walking the Labyrinth' has re-emerged today as a metaphor for the spiritual journey and a powerful tool for transformation. This walking meditation is an archetype, a mystical ritual found in all religious traditions. It quiets the mind and opens the soul. "Walking a Sacred Path" explores the historical origins of this divine imprint and shares the discoveries of modern day seekers. It shows readers the potential of the labyrinth to inspire change and renewal, and serves as a guide to help people develop the higher level of human awareness we need to survive in the 21st century. Psychotherapist and priest Dr. Lauren Artress says, "To walk a sacred path is to discover our inner sacred space: that core of feeling that is waiting to have life breathed back into it through symbols, archetypal forms like the labyrinth, rituals, stories, and myths." In her eloquent treatise, she champions the use of the labyrinth as a way of rediscovering one's spiritual centre.
In "Walking a Sacred Path", Artress tells the story of her own spiritual seeking and how a labyrinth came to be built at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. Sharing the vision of sacred geometry through the ages, she poetically recounts its wonderful effects.
