On September 13, 2019 Labyrinth Quest Facilitators, Dr. Margaret Rappaport and Darlene T. Hagon will lead an indoor labyrinth meditative walk at 10 a.m. at the Harwich Cultural Center. The walk will take place in the library. The theme will be: Simplicity
Darlene T. Hagon will discuss the importance and benefits of considering simplicity and the labyrinth. Most people tend to believe that simplicity implies doing without. It is quite the opposite. Simplicity can bring peace and balance to our lives by liberating us from the burden of extravagance and excess. A simple way of living directs our attention to the beauty, simplicity, and joy in what we thought were ordinary moments and dreary lives. Focusing on simplicity helps us in acknowledging our wants and needs and utilizing the creative energy necessary to reveal them in our lives.
A meditative tool such as the labyrinth provides us with an opportunity “to do something” for ourselves which “simply” requires that we make it a priority over other demands in our hectic lives. This meditative experience helps us determine what is essential for inner peace, happiness, and wellness. For a brief period in our day, entering the labyrinth “frees” us from the chaotic world in which we live, quiets us down while transforming us in ways known and unknown during the process
Through self-discovery and inspiration we begin to live the extraordinary gifts with which we have been blessed. We share them to the fullest extent in simple ways.
Darlene T. Hagon has selected music to accompany Labyrinth Quests’ walks. The labyrinth features artistic and decorative objects to enhance meditation and quiet reflection.
All are welcome to join us to walk. People may sit to observe, as well.
