While many are familiar with the labyrinth as a running pattern of spiraling paths, often associated with medieval churches where pilgrims found their way through the circuitry into a center where they sought to communicate with Divinity, here the Labyrinth harkens to a mysterious structure once described by Herodotus in about 450 BC. Herodotus speaks of visiting an Egyptian temple near the City of Crocodiles where he was invited to tour an amazing above ground sanctuary. Herodotus was denied access to the underground rooms which were secret, mysterious like the ancient mystery traditions, places of initiation.

Did one need to move into that sacred meditative state and access this underground not by physically descending but by moving one’s consciousness below the surface of waking reality into the depths of the Holy of Holies?

Was that the real reason Herodotus merely heard of and did not experience the depths of this ancient Egyptian temple?

In this weekend retreat we shall seek to enter the inner labyrinth in search of answers to the basic questions of our existence. Within the heart of our labyrinth rests the memory of who we are along with the grand plan of our incarnational role.

Come spend a weekend in search of Memory, of re membering, re connecting to the Truth of existence.
