Labyrinths and Mazes - Katherine Darton

We will discuss labyrinths and mazes, and look at different designs and what they are thought to signify. We will draw (at least) 2 labyrinths. Weather, and premises, permitting we will then create a walking labyrinth outside, either in chalk or using tent pegs and twine, which everyone can enjoy. Walking a labyrinth can be seen as a pilgrimage, and can be used for meditative practice 

 

About Katherine:

She then took a second degree in physiology, followed by a PhD and some years as a post-doc in rheumatology. 
After this she spent the last 22 years of her career working in mental health. Rheumatology and psychiatry together have made her very sceptical of conventional medicine’s 
dependence on medication, and she has developed a strong interest in alternatives of all kinds.
