labyrinth Study Group
A labyrinth is used for walking meditation. It is a single winding path from the outer edge in a circuitous way to the center. Labyrinths are used world wide as a way to quiet the mind, calm anxieties, recover balance in life, enhance creativity and encourage meditation, insight, self-reflection and stress reduction.
A proposal for a labyrinth to be constructed at Pima Prickly Park was presented to the TCSS board by Kermie Hodge at the October board meeting. The board approved the development of a plan that we will present to Pima County Parks & Rec who must first approve this addition. Kermie has prepared an introductory video (link below) and has a preliminary bill of materials for construction.
Interested members can email Labyrinth@TucsonCactus.org to join the Study Group and receive notifications about activities.

Watch the time-lapse video of the labyrinth's construction to see what their project entailed.
