The Project for Mindfulness & Contemplation at the University of St. Thomas asked me to install a temporary labyrinth for their Mindfulness Week. Here's the flier they created for the event. Please come and walk it! It is open to the community. When it gets closer, I'll give more directions on how to find the labyrinth.
This installation will be temporary, made of flagging tape and some sort of staking device. That I know for sure at this time. The space is an unusual shape and poses some interesting challenges when asked to do something quick, temporary, and inexpensively. Here's an image I posted to instagram:
Doing some dreaming about the #mindfulnessweek labyrinth #temporaryinstallation for #thewellnesscenter @uofstthomasmn in a couple of weeks. The site is an interesting more than oval, football like shape. I was thinking of elongating a simple circle, but a labyrinth friend suggested a back to back #doublelabyrinth. What do you think? And would you like to help? It will be made out of #flaggingtape and some sort of nail-landscape staple and I would love your help!
I'm looking for a few volunteers to assist with its installation and decommissioning on Mon, October 9 and Friday, October 13, respectively. Both starting at 3 p.m. There will be a lot of kneeling work, but if you'd like to make treats to keep other volunteers happy, that is welcome too! Email me at labyrinths
Here's the facebook event for the walk: https://www.facebook.com/events/1452795674817379/ReplyDelete
And one for the installation/cleanup: https://www.facebook.com/events/1831021383876913/
Jot it in your calendar. Bring friends.
Due to rain in the forecast for Monday, an alternative installation date is being considered for early Sunday afternoon. An announcement will be made early afternoon Friday is that is the case so volunteers can adjust plans as needed. Stay tuned!ReplyDelete
