Dancing the Labyrinth

Mairy and I have wanted to dance the labyrinth for a long time–and our dream was realized yesterday.

My new Blue Piston Nomad speaker on a lanyard connected by Bluetooth to my phone worked well.

We did “We are a circle” with pilgrim’s step – and miraculously would up in the centre at the end of the chant. We wished we’d thought of some symbolic act in the centre: touch the tree, circle the tree, place an object in the centre. We’ll do that next time.

Then we did “Tread Gently” and — miraculously — wound up at the end at the end of that chant.

We all felt that was a perfect dance for the labyrinth as we treaded gently along the winding pathway between flowers and herbs.

The labyrinth is a double processional style, so we were then on the opposite side. Next up: two more dances to get us back to the other side.

This was part of our June GLAD (Gathering for Labyrinth, Art and Dance). So then we all picked some flowers and herbs to make a group mandala together and then danced more indoors. The top left photo shows the posies made from the mandala at the end of the session. I’ll post other photos when I get them from those who took them.

What dances do you think are perfect for doing on the labyrinth?

We welcomed Kay and Jean from the U.K. Lovely to have summertime visitors join us. We told them about “CanCon”… and they learned Magpie!
