CONWAY, Ark. (April 11, 2019) – Hendrix College will host a World Labyrinth Day event Saturday, May 4, at the campus labyrinth adjacent to Trieschmann Fine Arts Building, near the intersection of Washington Avenue and Front Street. In keeping with the World Labyrinth Day theme of “Walk as One at 1,” the event begins at 1 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Participants are invited to gather at the Hendrix labyrinth for a brief presentation followed by a silent walk. It will be led by Twylla Alexander, a Veriditas-certified Labyrinth Facilitator and author of the 2017 book Labyrinth Journeys: 50 States, 51 Stories.

This year marks the 11th 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.

“We are pleased to host yet another observance of World Labyrinth Day at our campus labyrinth,” said Hendrix College Chaplain the Rev. J.J. Whitney. “Hendrix is fortunate to have this ancient tool for prayer and meditation, and grateful to be able to share it with the community. Walking it offers a way to quiet the mind and open the heart.”
