E. Arlington church invites public to participate in meditative practice
A labyrinth has popped up at Mass. Ave. and Linwood, on the lawn of Calvary Church, United Methodist.
An ancient symbol that combines a circle and a spiral, a labyrinth is often used in meditative practice. Calvary’s is made with rocks and stones found by parishioners during their summer travels; some have been painted with bright colors and inspiring words.
"The labyrinth is an invitation to find a moment of peace," says Rev. Cynthia Good, who has also been holding Wednesday evening services on the lawn this summer. “You can walk into the labyrinth carrying your worries, leave them in the center and walk out again in freedom.”
While many labyrinths are complex, the Calvary labyrinth is simple, to make walking it easy for all ages, including children. The labyrinth will stay in place through September.
