All are invited to walk our outdoor Seven Petal Labyrinth, created by Lisa Barrow of Sacred Spaces. Since ancient times, Labyrinths have been utilized as tools for prayer and meditation, connecting ourselves to the divine of all things possible.
The Seven Petal Labyrinth is designed to depict life, simple and easy in the beginning, becoming more challenging and mindful, and then becoming simple and easy toward the end as wisdom has been learned.
Also available is an indoor Labyrinth in case of rain or snow. Both Labyrinths are available to use in conjunction with your workshops.
Outdoor Picnic Area located next to the Church.
Overnight accommodations are available locally at comfortable bed and breakfasts, luxurious spa hotels, cozy motels and national chains; such as Best Western and Holiday Inn.
