"LABYRINTHS FOR PEACE: 2000"
2000-03-13 until 2000-03-25
Labyrinth Society
Washington, DC, USA United States of America

The Labyrinth Society will hold its inaugural exhibit, Labyrinths for Peace: 2000, in the Canon Rotunda of the House of Representatives during daily office hours and 9 am -1 pm Sat., March 13-25. People are invited to walk labyrinths alone or in groups from 9 am to 5 pm throughout the day on the east lawn of the U. S. Capitol. On Thursday evening, March 16, people may come to a special exhibit viewing in the Rotunda at Independence and New Jersey Ave. SE from 6-7 pm followed by a program in the Rayburn Building Foyer at Independence and South Capitol SE.

Unlike a maze with its many paths, the single winding path of a labyrinth moves one back and forth to the center, requiring only that the walker place one foot in front of the other. Often the experience slows one's breathing, focuses the mind, and induces a peaceful state of being.

In the last ten years, this design more than three thousand years old and found around the world, has flowered once again: in parks and gardens, hospitals and retreat centers, prisons and churches, schools and corporations.

The Labyrinth Society was founded in 1998 to further education, research, and networking for all those who create, maintain or use labyrinths. For further information about the Society, contact www.labyrinthsociety.org. Labyrinths for Peace: 2000 will begin its journey in Washington DC as a traveling exhibit.
