VISIT OUR LABYRINTH
Grailville is home to a small outdoor stone path labyrinth—shared with our neighbors Children’s Meeting House. It is located in front of the Oratory. It is free and open to guests 365 days a year during daylight hours.
From Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, Grailville opens the Oratory at pop-up times for those who seek calm and peace during the hectic and pressure-filled end of the year season. The indoor labyrinth is free to the public and can be reserved for a group—family, friends, colleagues—contact our office.
Found in almost all religious traditions around the world, labyrinths have re-emerged from the ages as a spiritual tool for creating sacred space, for journeying inward, and for reconnecting with the Earth/Cosmos. Ancient labyrinth patterns, which date back to 4500 B.C., are found in Northern Europe, India, Peru, Greece, and the American Southwest.
Unlike a maze, a labyrinth contains a single continuous path that leads to the center of a spiraling or regularly circling pattern. At its most basic level, the labyrinth is a metaphor for a journey to the center of one’s deepest self and back. A journey to the center and back can provide both opportunity and inspiration for quiet meditation, reflection, prayer, and self-awareness.
Looking for personal space?
The Oratory is a calming space perfect for solo meditation. Stop by during office hours or make an appointment at email@example.com to spend an hour in reflection and contemplation. Not quite sure what to do? A Grail member crafted a helpful binder of meditations to help you on your journey.
The Grail unites with faith communities to partner on specific ecumenical events, or to advance common goals. We invite participation by members and non-members.
