Unity of Sarasota’s unique and very special labyrinth was featured in an article in “Only in Your State.” Posted in Florida Nature July 24, 2019 by Marisa Roman

“There are quite a few labyrinths in Florida—over 100 to be exact—all of which are teaching people to slow down, take a breath, and meditate for a little while. These ancient pathways have been popping up more and more throughout the country, often used as a walking meditation for many. And while some of these labyrinths are set up by local churches and religious groups, they are often open to the public to use freely and whenever the need hits.”

Labyrinths are unique to many as they are steeped in ancient tradition dating back over 4,000 years. There is no right or wrong way to walk a labyrinth for those who haven’t yet attempted this form of meditation.

Visitors to this labyrinth can spend time in quiet reflection or meditation, walking the path between the pavers.

Come enjoy a peaceful walk in nature, quiet meditative reflection, and a practice that has been coveted for thousands upon thousands of years.

Labyrinths evoke metaphor, sacred geometry, spiritual pilgrimage and practice & mindfulness..  Walking a labyrinth can facilitate this journey by providing a spiritual path for prayer, reflection and meditation.

“Located behind the church in a grove of swaying oak trees, this outdoor labyrinth is created out of concrete pavers and multiple peace poles—most labyrinths only have one. A peace pole is a four-sided monument that has a message of peace written in different languages.”

“This labyrinth at Unity of Sarasota is modeled after one that was laid into the floor of a cathedral in Chartres, France in 1220. The power of the labyrinth comes from its simplicity—an orderly path that helps to keep the body moving in peaceful rhythm as the mind becomes quiet.”
