CONWAY, Ark. (April 24, 2018) – Hendrix College will host a
World Labyrinth Day event on Saturday, May 5, at 1 p.m. at the campus labyrinth
adjacent to Trieschmann Fine Arts Building, near the intersection of Washington
and Independence avenues. The event is free and open to the public.
This year marks the 10th World Labyrinth Day, sponsored annually
by The Labyrinth Society, an international organization that encourages participants
from around the globe to create a wave of peaceful energy across time zones as
they walk labyrinths in their communities.
The theme of World Labyrinth Day is “Walk as One at 1.”
Participants are invited to gather at the Hendrix labyrinth at 1 p.m. for a
brief presentation followed by a silent walk. The walk will be led by Twylla
Alexander, a Veriditas-certified Labyrinth Facilitator and author of the 2017
book Labyrinth Journeys: 50 States, 51
“We are excited to host World Labyrinth Day for the second year
at our campus labyrinth,” said Hendrix College Chaplain the Rev. J.J. Whitney.
“The labyrinth is an ancient symbol and tool for prayer and meditation. Walking
it offers a way to quiet the mind and open the heart.”
In advance of World Labyrinth Day, Alexander will speak Monday,
April 30, from 4:15 to 5 p.m. in the Learning Commons of Bailey Library at
Hendrix College. She will discuss labyrinths, how and why they are used, and
how people find meaning in them. She also will share highlights of her two-year
journey across the U.S. to walk labyrinths and meet their creators. A book
signing will follow.
