Wilson College to observe World Labyrinth Day with temporary labyrinth

May 01, 2013

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Wilson College will observe World Labyrinth Day on Saturday by creating a temporary labyrinth on the campus green and hosting activities.

Those who walk the labyrinth are said to “find” themselves rather than getting lost, as they might in a maze, according to a news release about the labyrinth.

The event is free and open to the public.

At 11 a.m. in Warfield Hall’s Allen Auditorium, the Rev. Margee Iddings will present “Preparing to Walk a Labyrinth,” where participants can learn more about this ancient practice before experiencing it themselves. A picnic lunch will be held at noon outside Lenfest Commons, where labyrinth art and a creative writing exhibit will be on display.

An opening ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m., featuring the Wilson College Choir, hand bell choir and members of Wilson’s Orchesis dance troupe. The ceremony will conclude with the formation of a human labyrinth at 1 p.m. to coincide with the “Walk as One at One” connecting people observing World Labyrinth Day.

An indoor labyrinth also will be available throughout the day in the lobby of the Brooks Science Complex. Resource materials and facilitated walks will be available.

On Sunday, the college will hold a candlelight labyrinth walk at 8 p.m. on the campus green. All are welcome.

The labyrinth will be in place for one week, and community residents are welcome to walk the path.

This event is part of a semester-long labyrinth project at Wilson College. For more information, visit the project blog at http://thelabyrinthproject.blogspot.com/ or contact the Rev. Rosie Magee at rosie.magee@wilson.edu or 717-264-4141, ext. 3307.
