Welcome to my Labyrinths Pilgrimage

Hello. Thank your for visiting Labyrinths for Life. My name is Dr Margaret Rainbird. In 2017, I’m setting off on a personal quest to walk a different labyrinth every day for all 365 days!!!

For those of you who don’t know already, a labyrinth is a path for walking for meditation. Unlike a maze, its intention is not to present you with a puzzle to be solved. Although a labyrinth often looks complex and convoluted it has only one path in to the centre and out again. Rather than end up frazzled and frustrated like we may exploring a maze with a labyrinth we have the potential to leave the experience more settled. It can provide a respite from the constant demands of our modern life.
