In the first of these, ‘Labyrinths’, Sig will show examples from around the world, explain how to make one, and give some ideas about how to use them.
Labyrinths, single-path magical tools, have been around for thousands of years, and they are located all over the world from Indonesia to Peru, from Hopi land in Arizona to Sweden where there are more pre-modern ones than anywhere else on our planet. There is no correct way to walk a labyrinth. They are wonderful meditational tools; children love to run them and in the Middle Ages, monks crawled them on their knees. In Sweden, up until the beginning of the last century, fishermen walked them to ensure a good catch and a good wind; the Swedes used them as Troll catchers to keep them from coming on the boats and interfering with their catch.
