Chakra Labyrinth

The most basic metaphor for walking a labyrinth is that of Life’s Journey. Walk the labyrinth while mindful of your life. Envision your life’s goal. Walk to your destiny and see what you learn. Pay attention to the sights and sounds. Do you feel lost at any time? If so, where in the labyrinth did it occur? What does that mean? Do you like one part of the labyrinth more than another? Why? What do the turns represent in your life? Do you resist some turns and like others. When you are outdoors notice subtle changes in the terrain – the ups and downs. Notice any synchronicities such as an overheard word or a bird’s song. Consider all of your experiences in the labyrinth in relation to your life’s journey. Walk alone, and then journal your experience. Walk with a group and then share your experiences. What does the labyrinth teach you about your life?

The labyrinth at The Bunkhouse is based on the classical 7-circuit design–with a twist. We have placed colored rocks representing the 7 major chakras around each of the 7 circuits. Chakra is a concept referring to wheel-like vortices which, according to traditional Hindu medicine, are believed to exist in the surface of living beings. The chakras are said to be the ‘force centers’ or whorls of energy permeating from a point on the physical body. The color chakras are:

1. The Crown Chakra (white)
2. The Third Eye Chakra (purple)
3. The Throad Chakra (blue)
4. The Heart Chakra (green)
5. The Solar Plexas Chakra (yellow)
6. The Sacral Chakra (orange)
7. The Base/Root Chakra (red)
