Group labyrinth walk in support of our grief process

Wednesday, June 19, 5:15 – 6:45 PM Where: Bethany Church chapel, 115 Main Street, Montpelier

For anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one How: We will hear a brief explanation of how to walk the labyrinth and how it can be used as a tool for healing our grief. Time will be allowed for all participants to walk. After all have completed the walk, we will gather for a brief processing time.

Optional: bring a photo of your beloved or a small memento to carry as you walk.

Grieving is a journey, a path to a destination unknown to us.

The labyrinth is a very effective tool when working through grief. Walking the focused path allows us to release our fear of where we are going as it leads us to the center. When we arrive at the center of the labyrinth, allow as much time as is needed in stillness for receiving what is there to receive. When ready, follow the same path back out, returning, integrating the experience.

Pre-registration requested. Contact Rev. Amy Pitton at 223-2424 or Diana Moore at 224-2241 with any questions. Co-sponsored by Bethany Church and Central Vermont Home Health and Hospice.
