About the Greet:
During this greet we will visit a few of Houston’s labyrinths, all outdoors, nestled among trees and flowers close to historical or prominent Houston landmarks. These labyrinths resemble those of ancient times, a single winding path leading to a center. Labyrinths are shrouded in mystery and I will be unfolding part of that mystery by sharing the history of this ancient tradition with you. Why were labyrinths built? How old are they? Why do people walk labyrinths? All important questions which I will endeavor to answer. If you so chose, you may walk one of the labyrinths so bring comfy shoes and perhaps a journal or sketch pad to draw or write about your experience. So whether you wish to focus on the rich history of labyrinths or take a quiet walk to gain insight or perhaps do both, this Greet is for you!
Hi! I'm Kathy, and I became interested in labyrinths when I attended a workshop given by Lauren Artress, the woman who was largely responsible for the revival of labyrinths in the United States. Since attending Artress's workshop, I have walked many of Houston's labyrinths as a meditative tool and have also read extensively on the fascinating history of labyrinths. I would love to share some of that history with you and to show you some of my favorite labyrinths in Houston!
