Healing Labyrinth in Weed
Located just 9 miles out of the town of Weed on Hwy 97 is a healing labyrinth at the Living Memorial Sculpture Gardens. What is a healing labyrinth?
Labyrinth patterns, originally built into the floors of medieval cathedrals, are comprised of a single, winding unobstructed path, usually from the outside to the inside of a circular shape. Although labyrinths take a circuitous path, they do not have the dead ends found in mazes; thus they are often viewed as a metaphor for our life journeys. Many cultures and religions throughout history have used labyrinths to bring more spiritual, emotional, psychological and physical well being into their lives.
You can reach the healing labyrinth by taking Hwy 97 approx 9 miles to the Living Memorial Sculpture Gardens. It's free of charge, has picnic tables, a restroom, and fabulous views of Mt Shasta to reconnect with nature.
