Why Build a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is a work of art, place of beauty, a place of peace, a place to relieve stress and improve mindfulness, and a pathway that may lead to answers.
Labyrinths are used to problem solve, improve focus while tuning out distractions, bring clarity and spark imagination. A labyrinth provides the space to let go and leave the complexities of life at the entrance, finding an opportunity in the twists and turns to connect with creative genius.
What is a Labyrinth?
Labyrinths are ancient, archetypal symbols that are based on patterns in nature and are found throughout the world in diverse shapes and sizes. Our bodies resonate with these natural patterns. Studies have shown that when the mind relaxes, the body relaxes.
A labyrinth and a maze are two sides of the same coin. A maze has false starts, dead ends and high walls. While a labyrinth, is usually defined by being flat upon the ground with a single path that takes you to a center place; both physically and metaphorically. You lose yourself in a maze and find yourself in a labyrinth.

"The Schulz Museum labyrinth had an auspicious beginning, as the director and I decided to attend a talk and demonstration by Lea Goode-Harris on the afternoon of September 11, 2001. I thought the sense of what a labyrinth embodies is just what I wanted to share at our Museum. Any time I see visitors, running, walking or just sitting in the Labyrinth, it makes my heart jump.
