Special Option: Finger Labyrinths
The Labyrinth Committee has two wooden finger labyrinths to share with church members at times of need, especially when it is not possible to walk the labyrinth at church. Constructed of cherry and maple wood, they are a beautiful presence that can serve as reminders of the community that cares for you. The committee has also created laminated labyrinths for church members who are unable to come to church. Contact: Ann Hobbs, 763-546-3337, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Testimonial: This winter, I have been using a laminated finger labyrinth as a regular morning practice. Tracing the path of the labyrinth with the eraser end of a pencil works best for me. I follow the pattern of the labyrinth twice, first with my writing hand, the second time, with my non-dominant hand. For those of us who have a hard time quieting our minds, following a pattern like the labyrinth is very effective. Even as it becomes familiar, the twists and turns calm and quiet us. The advantages of a finger labyrinth are its easy availability and the relatively short commitment of time. Daily practice with the labyrinth provides an effective entry into a meditative state. -- by Monica Tahibnapis
