Walking the Labyrinth

The Labyrinth at Unity Village offers visitors an opportunity to practice mindfulness, meditation, contemplation, and reflection.

Labyrinths have long been used by many faith traditions as a tool to integrate mind, body, and spirit. At Unity Village, each stone of the labyrinth was laid by hand, creating the largest paver labyrinth in the United States. Commissioned from an artisan labyrinth-maker and his wife, Marty and Debi Kermeen of Labyrinths in Stone, the labyrinth is an 11-circuit medieval design 90 feet in diameter covering 6,000 square feet. It has three granite benches in the center for reflection.

There is no right or wrong way to walk a labyrinth. It is a circuitous path with one way in and out. Unlike a maze, which is designed to confuse you, a labyrinth is designed to help you find your way.

The labyrinth is a sacred space. When in the space:

  • Observe silence.
  • No pets.
  • No food or drink.
  • No open flames.
  • Please do not photograph other people while they are walking the labyrinth.


  • Relax your body and your breath as you walk.
  • Find your natural pace.
  • Feel free to move around people or allow them to move around you.
  • Let your senses open to your surroundings.
  • Use everything in the labyrinth as metaphor.
  • Set an intention if you are so called.

Suggested Walk
The 3 Rs–Release | Receive | Return

  • As you enter the labyrinth, release what no longer serves you.
  • When you arrive at the center, be open to receive subtle messages or insights.
  • As you return, integrate your experience. Take whatever you receive back into the world with you.

The journey is yours.

The Labyrinth at Unity Village is designed to be fully accessible, and the path is wide enough for a wheelchair.
