Canvas LabyrinthThe Oakleigh labyrinth prayer and meditation walk will now change to the

Second Wednesday night of each month.

The change will take effect on June 11th.

The Augustine centre in Hawthorn run labyrinth evenings on the first and third Wednesday of every month. By changing the Oakleigh date, it means suburban Melbourne enthusiasts have more options to walk a labyrinth each month.

The Oakleigh labyrinth is held in the Oakleigh Uniting Church hall, 154 Drummond St. (near the library – see map).
We invite you to come and enjoy the healing and transformational space of the labyrinth.

labyrinthRev. Dr. Lauren Artress’ visit to Melbourne last month has sparked a lot of interest in the labyrinth. The following article comes from The AGE newspaper.

A medieval Christian pilgrimage you could make without leaving home is undergoing a modern revival _ and an expansion beyond religion.

It is called the labyrinth, and its adherents make remarkable claims about its spiritual and mental benefits, including providing calm and peace, healing grief, reinspiring the creative spark, restoring right-left brain balance, and enabling the mind to uncover deep answers.

But the benefits have been found credible enough for 225 American hospitals and an unknown number of schools, universities and prisons to build labyrinths, as well as churches, retreat centres and even public parks.

Labyrinth constructionLabyrinth trainer Robert Ferre is coming to Australia in October and will be running both facilitator training and master class training at places and dates to be advised. The master class training is about how to construct labyrinths, while the facilitator training is “with a male left-brained stuff-them-full-of-information approach” according to Robert.

For more information see: Facilitator training and Master class.

It can be difficult amidst the pace of life to find a space that is quiet and reflective. It is not always easy to find a labyrinth like many have this weekend at the Augustine centre. But one simple way to take a few moments between emails or while surfing online is to check out the church resources ‘quiet space‘ online. In addition to the quiet space they have daily gospel reflections and other prayer resources, including those submitted by users.

The St. David’s Uniting Church in Oakleigh offers monthly labyrinth prayer and meditation walks also. There is an online labyrinth for you to trace at any time should you be seeking a quiet labyrinth space.
