LABYRINTH

Landscape of the Soul

by Di Williams


‘In the fast-paced world in which we now live, we need simple,

beautiful places like labyrinths that draw us in by the attraction

of their pattern to slow ourselves down, still the busy mind and

connect us again with our deep inner resources.'

This full-colour book offers a unique insight into labyrinths in the UK and wider, combined with Di’s own stunning photography. It begins with a potted history of the labyrinth and hints for walking one, shares personal reflections and stories from the labyrinth and explores the variety of settings in which labyrinths are now to be found. It includes a section on how to create your own labyrinth and lead your own labyrinth walk.

Di Williams is an Anglican priest, adult educator, spiritual accompanier, professional bodywork practitioner, writer and the first Labyrinth Master Teacher in the UK. One of the gifts she brings to her work is a deep appreciation of physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual connection. She was awarded the MBE in 2008 for Services to Higher Education for her leading work in developing personal and spiritual support for those of all faiths and none. She is the creator of the beautiful Edinburgh Labyrinth.

Working with the Labyrinth

Paths for exploration

Ruth Sewell, Jan Sellers & Di Williams

Around the world a growing number of people are working with the labyrinth, an ancient artefact which is fulfilling a renewed role in today's world.

This book offers ideas and examples of labyrinths in use

in various situations: arts, community and social settings;

schools, colleges and universities; a hospice, and a secure hospital;

counselling, psychotherapy and well-being; churches, retreats and

interfaith contexts.


 

The authors say:

We hope you will find Working with the Labyrinth a book to browse and return to, a source of ideas and inspiration. … We’d like to encourage readers to explore settings and contexts very different from their own, where labyrinth initiatives may offer surprising connections and possibilities. We are delighted to have gathered contributions from such diverse enthusiasts, and hope that this book will serve as a helpful resource for anyone who – new to labyrinths, or expert – is looking for fresh ideas and ways forward in introducing, creating and working with labyrinths.

This title is also available as an e-book.
