"The labyrinth is a serpentine path used as a spiritual tool to help those who walk it grow in their relationship with God. While they walk it, pilgrims might offer the time to God or meditate on a pressing question, a breath prayer, or a passage of Scripture.
The winding path leads toward the center, toward God, toward wholeness and integration. Many person find it meaningful to remain a while in the center, praying and meditating. The journey out is a preparation toward offering one's gifts to others and to the larger world. "
