The Labyrinth

The St Francis Health Centre Labyrinth, built in 1999, is a replica of the Labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France. At its most basic level, the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey of life. It is also a journey to the centre of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.

This journey is taken in a safe space created by sacred geometry. The circular shape signifies wholeness and unity.

Walking the Labyrinth can be divided into three stages:

Walking In:
Signifies cleansing, emptying and letting go. It deals with the past.
Time in the Center:
Signifies a time of focus, reflection, introspection and inspiration. It deals with the present.
Walking Out:
Signifies integration, action, being grounded, becoming energised and empowered. It deals with the future.
