    Hi to labyrinth lovers

    I was very pleased to put in a successful grant for our Mid North Suicide Prevention Network for a labyrinth at Jamestown for those who have been affected by suicide

    It was pleasing to have the Northern Areas Council support the construction of a labyrinth in Jamestown as a place where people who have been affected by suicide in our region can walk, and spend some quiet time in contemplation.

    It is intended to hold a meeting with anyone who has been affected and wishes to have input into making art pieces that capture their loved ones, the challenges faced in rural communities, as well as a place where there experience has been meaningfully acknowledged by community members.

    The initial meeting will be held in March next year, where the aspects of making a special place, and in the form of a labyrinth, shall be shared.

    Hospitals and other community centres around the world are embracing labyrinths as part of a healing journey, whether it be for mental health, cancer recovery, or for the pleasure of walking a labyrinth.

    The photo gives some idea of the basic shape of the labyrinth which will be constructed on a site suitable to the public and Council.

    from David Whyte, poet, Consolations

    MATURITY

    "Maturity is not a static arrived platform, where life is viewed from a calm, untouched oasis of wisdom, but a living elemental frontier between what has happened, what is happening now and the consequences of that past and present; first imagined and then lived into the waiting future.

    Maturity calls us to…a bigger picture, a larger horizon; for a powerfully generous outward incarnation of our inward qualities and not for gains that make us smaller, even in the winning.”

    This is who we are - ALN Council Carriers July 2019

    from David Whyte, poet, Consolations

    BEAUTY

    “Is the harvest of presence, the evanescent moment of seeing or hearing on the outside what already lives far inside us; the eyes, the ears or the imagination suddenly become a bridge between the here and the there, between then and now, between the inside and the outside; beauty is the conversation between what we think is happening outside in the world and what is just about to occur far inside us."

    It's fun to share labyrinth news articles - here's one by Meryl Ann Butler from OpEdNews about World Labyrinth Day coming up this weekend - love the pun 'May the Fourth be with you!'

    We had a wonderful time at the 3rd ALN Gathering down at St Clement's retreat centre in Galong, NSW (near Canberra). It started with a labyrinth tour of three labyrinths in Canberra, lovely to see and feel three very different styles and purposes of labyrinths (the Arboretum, the Australian Christianity and Culture Centre, the Clare Holland House hospice). Then we drove to Galong, and had a very engaging day of the use of labyrinths in ritual and ceremony with Robin Clayfield and Mark Healy. The Gathering itself was a joyous community-fest, with workshops and several labyrinth walks, and spontaneous offerings of rituals around the meal-times, which nourished my spirit as well as my heart and body. We'll post a Gallery page soon...

    It's exciting when labyrinths get in the national news. There was an ABC news story about the Labyrinth Link Australia collaboration with the ALN to create an Australian Labyrinth Locator. This interactive online map allows people to find labyrinths near them, and to add locations of labyrinths not yet on the map... have a go, and let us know how you find it!

    Over 30 labyrinth lovers from around Australia, and two from USA joined us at Canisius House in Pymble for the 2nd Annual Gathering.

    Titled Endless Circles of Inspiration, our lovely key-note speaker, Lisa Gidlow Moriarty shared generously her skills and experience and love of labyrinth-making. 

    Here's a picture of us making the labyrinth which was then auctioned for $3325 via eBay - gotta love technology!
