A little bit more about the Guided labyrinth experience
My first experience with the healing and meditative powers of the labyrinth was in Chartres Cathedral in 2014, together with my friend Doug Buckingham (one of the facilitators of the retreat). It was magical, and I was amazed when labyrinths came into my life again. I want to share this simple and wonderful tool with more people in all its shapes and forms.
Labyrinths are an ancient tool for self-discovery. Research has shown that walking a labyrinth creates balance in the body and brings peace to the mind. The benefits of walking labyrinths are now recognised by many universities, hospitals, hospices, schools, inner city councils and cathedrals. The Labyrinth at Tofte Manor is a source of inspiration and peace. On the Saturday, we will have a Guided Labyrinth Experience at the labyrinth in Tofte Manor. It is nestled in a quiet secluded part of the garden and it is filled with a sense of tranquillity and ageless beauty, stirring feelings of enchantment. This labyrinth incorporates all the elements in its design; earth, air, fire and water. The water that runs through the labyrinth pathway can be drunk. It is delicious, pure and vital, and is served to all our guests during their stay.
