Virtual On-line Labyrinths

Another great way to walk a labyrinth is to use one of the many virtual labyrinths available on teh interwebz. Here are my two favourites:


Labyrinth Online (click here) gives you a choice of designs and "carries" you through the labyrinth, so you don't need to use your cursor. The walk is silent but you can play your own choice of music on a headset or other device if it would enhance the meditation for you. The "button" which travels the labyrinth changes colours as each circuit is completed. It goes through each rainbow colour of the seven chakras. If you want, you can pause the button and then resume the walk at your convenience. You'll enjoy reaching the centre of the labyrinth!


A virtual Chartres labyrinth is available at Gratefulness.org (click here), source of the cute labyrinth-walking cat photo that everyone liked so much the last time I posted it. This site gives you a choice of being carried through the labyrinth or moving the cursor yourself (click and drag -- not conducive to optimal meditation, in my experience). You also get to choose whether you want photos, text or both to periodically appear during the course of your walk. There's no music though -- this virtual labyrinth is also silent. And you'll enjoy reaching the centre of this one too.

So dare I say it? Of course. Let Your Eyes Do the Walking!

*sigh* Maybe I should try this. My shrink keeps yelling at me to try meditation. She's pushy.

Hey Debz, I could really use a labyrinth right now. We've finally moved to NYC, but we're still unpacking. Well, actually I'M the one unpacking since Hubz is working full time. I haven't had time to look for a job yet. One can't prepare for an interview when one cannot find his box of clean underwear.

Note to self. Pack more than 3 days worth of underwear for a move. I'm all better now, having discovered how to work the pay washing machine in the building.
