A place for meditation, contemplation, inspiration and general peace of mind has been officially opened behind the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum at 267 Edmund Street in Carleton Place.
A labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool that has been used for over 4,000 years. In its long history the labyrinth has crossed cultural and religious traditions and can be found in countries all over the globe.
This grass walking path has a single entry point which leads the walker on a single circuitous path to the center and then back out to the entry point.
The experience of each walker is different. Some walk to relieve stress, some to be energized, some to experience calm and some walk just for fun.
The labyrinth is now available all day every day for us to explore and enjoy.
