What is a Labyrinth? Are there any in Canada?

by | Sep 20, 2022

Labyrinths are ancient paths that have been walked for thousands of years.  They are found all over the world and are connected by a common thread – the path that leads to the center.

Labyrinths serve as a way to connect with our ancestors, walk in their footsteps, and find our way in the world. There are many labyrinths in the world, each with its own unique history and purpose.

Each labyrinth is an intricate archetypal pattern made with stones on the ground and etched into ancient rocks and walls.

A labyrinth can be found in many places around the world. They offer us a way to connect with our past, present, and future. If you ever have the opportunity to walk one, do so with an open heart and mind. It may just change your life.

Mary’s Labyrinth is Canada’s first and most prominent Legacy labyrinth. Located on Treaty 4 Territory, Mary’s Labyrinth honors all who walk this land, past, present, and future.

The labyrinth is a symbol of hope, a reminder that we are all connected, and a place of healing and peace. The aim of the labyrinth is to encourage healing throughout First Nation tribes and the nearby land.

The labyrinth is open to everyone and can be used for many purposes such as prayer, walks of gratitude, reflection, and community events.
