International Visitors to the Vancouver Unitarian Labyrinths


Unity Way Labyrinth – the “home” labyrinth of our visitors.

On Sunday, May 8 (significantly the day after World Labyrinth Day), I was working on “my” labyrinth at 49th and Fremlin (one east of Oak).

A couple arrived, looked at me quizzically and said, “We’d like to walk the labyrinth.”

“Of course!” I said enthusiastically, and moved to pruning the hedge so they could enjoy some privacy.

When they finished, they hugged. And then they each took a photo of the other on the “flower labyrinth”.

So I felt it was OK now to approach them and ask how they knew about the labyrinth.

Here’s their story. They live in San Diego, attend the Unity Church which has a labyrinth. They were here on a trip celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. They were travelling to Vancouver on World Labyrinth Day so didn’t get to walk a labyrinth. They went to the Labyrinth Locator (where I had just registered our two labyrinths a week or two prior) and we weren’t far from where they were staying.

“There’s another one here.  We’re going to walk it, too,” they said.

“Great!” I responded and pointed, but they were already well on their way to the courtyard having done their research.

BTW, this year World Naked Gardening Day (the first Saturday in May) was also on world Labyrinth Day. Boggles the mind.
