Labyrinth – Inspired by the labyrinth at Shanti Retreat on Wolfe Island, take a few minutes of stillness, to reflect, and to walk the path inward.  According to Shanti, “This is not a maze but a choice whether to enter or not, whether or not to walk a spiritual path. A labyrinth is a right brain task. It involves intuition, creativity, and imagery.”  “At its most basic level, a labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.” Source: http://www.lessons4living.com/labyrinth.htm
