Walk the Labyrinth June 1 

May 23, 2017

Plymouth’s First Thursday Labyrinth Walk, 10 am until 2 pm, June 1, in Hildebrand Hall 

A recent interview of Sheryl Sandberg and Elizabeth Alexander explored how they coped with the sudden, early deaths of their husbands. From tragedy each has gained wisdoms that help them continue on.  

  • “Self compassion is how we recover.  And not just for the things that aren’t our fault. But also… when we’re so angry… or when we get it wrong… We have to work on treating ourselves like we would treat our friends.”
  • The poet  Rilke:”Let everything happen to you beauty and terror. Just keep going, no feeling is final.”

For Rilke, life is a journey. “The only journey is the one within.” “Let life happen to you. Believe me life is in the right always.” Rumi asks: “And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?”

The labyrinth offers a place to explore how we’re handling all that life brings our way. Time in focused silence helps us connect to the ever present Wisdom within that accompanies us on our long journey.
