Recently, Laure blogged how walking can be a form of escape that's not only good for your body but also good for your mind. And, focused meditative walking can have dramatic benefits for your spirit as well. As you move with a regular rhythim (sans IPod), the movement acts as interior drumbeat that drowns out your daily stresses. Labyrinth walking is a classic form of focused walking. And with the help of The Labyrinth Company you can now easily create one in your own backyard...
Buy one of their templates, constructed from weed blocking landscape fabric, lay it on the ground, outline it with stones and fill it in with soil and grass or the plants of your choice and you'll be well on your way to a walking escape. They also sell temporary and finger labyrinths for those without the space to devote to a full-on set-up. Click here
