Walking a Path of Transformation: Using the Labyrinth as a Spiritual Tool.
Plugge, Carol; McCormick, Debby
Personal and spiritual transformation is emerging as a great need. Numerous societal and health concerns are beginning to surface as spiritual issues in the eyes of many professionals. A better understanding of the relationship between psychosocial-biological issues and spirituality would enhance professional capabilities. Experiential skills and techniques, such as journaling, meditation, imagery, mindful movement, and massage, can strengthen teaching and learning strategies for behavioral and attitudinal changes. The labyrinth integrates several of these techniques. This paper discusses the use of the labyrinth as a spiritual and meditative tool that can expand insight and open the imagination to transformative growth and development. The classical 11-circuit labyrinth is described in detail, along with the stages of the labyrinth walk and various methods of reflection and meditation used to promote attention to the present moment, insight, healing, or spiritual growth.
