Labyrinth Walk - DIY Indoor Labyrinth

Create a calming and spiritual experience with a DIY indoor labyrinth. A labyrinth is a pattern of pathways that weave around a central point, inviting residents to experience a journey both inward and outward. Labyrinth walking is an ancient practice used for spiritual centering, contemplation, and prayer by various faiths. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has a single path, simplifying the experience. Residents can walk slowly, quiet their minds, and focus on a spiritual question or prayer. To create the labyrinth, use painter's tape on the floor or a foldable canvas for reuse. Enhance the ambiance with tea lights, guiding residents to walk mindfully, paying attention to their breath and inner thoughts.
