A loving Heart is the truest wisdom...Charles Dickens
Intelligence highly awakened is intuition,
Which is the only true guide in life. ---Krishnamurti
Wow, Autumn has come with a rush with deliciously crisp mornings and beautiful sunny days. Its so dry though, and I am keeping water bowls filled and fresh in the garden for the birds and the insects. The dogs partake as well so all is shared. The labyrinths are looking wonderful after our walk on Sunday. They activate when we enter and the energy sings for days after.
I enjoyed my time at the Australian Labyrinth Network Gathering at Galong NSW, 21-24 March. Its a fantastic opportunity to network with like minded others and reconnect with old friends. We learned about processional and ceremonial labyrinths from Mark Healy and how to design ceremony with Robyn Clayfield. I was invited to share our news from Shepparton , as were others in the labyrinth community. For more info and pics join up with the Australian Labyrinth Network on Facebook or go to www.aln.org.au to explore the developing website. If you have a labyrinth put it on Labyrinth Link via the website.You can also become a member of ALN.
