Many Christians and churches are rediscovering an ancient prayer practice: a labyrinth. A labyrinth is a geometrically designed walking path leading to and from a central point. It is not a maze; you cannot get lost. There are no dead ends. The point is not disorientation, but orientation. Labyrinths have been used for centuries to facilitate prayer and meditation.
Prayer labyrinths are an ancient form of prayer that invite our bodies to participate in the process as we follow a path that mirrors the winding and circuitous journey of faith.
Your regional camp and conference center at Tawakoni offers a brick and gravel prayer labyrinth located just south of the Chapel. Spend an afternoon in the quiet stillness of nature recentering yourself. Additionally, a smaller prayer labyrinth is painted on the concrete parking area outside the chapel.
Call the camp office, 316-775-1222 for available hours prior to arrival.
Have a special prayer service, workshop or retreat?
The region has purchased a portable prayer labyrinth that is available for check-out through any regional staff member. The 30 feet X 30 feet rugged canvas design is perfect for individuals and small groups.
Churches, ministry groups, or individuals who wish to check out any of these prayer labyrinths or want to know more about the spiritual benefits of labyrinths, contact Co-Regional Minister Ken Marston, or call 620-792-6490 for details.
