About the Chartres Cathedral Labyrinth:
The most famous of the French cathedral labyrinths, Chartres is 42 feet wide and fills the floor of the nave. Oriented on a west-east facing to emphasize the metaphors of death and resurrection, the path of the labyrinth is a metaphor for life’s journey. The stones of the path matches the number of days of a baby’s gestation. The center petals of the Rose symbolize both Mary, mother of Jesus, and the six days of creation. The center circle represents the Divine. Thus the labyrinth’s path symbolizes a path towards rebirth, re-creation, a re-joining with the Divine Creator. The path outwards symbolizes the new life after we are transformed by the Divine. The Chartres Cathedral labyrinth in France is the most widely used of the medieval labyrinth designs. The complexity, beautiful symmetry and rich symbolism offer many people an opportunity to refocus and refresh from their busy lives.

    Charlotte,I just watched an eospide of “Explore” on “National Geographic Explorer”. I thought of you and your new site because the “o” in Explore is a hand-drawn labyrinth. And its tagline: “to champion selfless acts”.The subject could have been anything, really, but it was about a theater group in a Palestinian “refugee camp” in Israel whose mission was to use art to heal violence with the added idea that “No child is born a terrorist” (or, for that matter, a fisherman or a riverboat gambler).What path could have more twists and turns than the ancient and very particular story above with the universal hopes for love and inspiration that every parent has for their children (as fishermen or riverboat gamblers—or anything else).I’ll be back to your site many times to see what you and others have to say about the image and idea of the Labyrinth in our lives.Good work,Alan
