The labyrinth is an ancient archetypal symbol; a metaphor for the journey of life. It is the path of wisdom, the path of knowledge, the path of truth, the path of love. The path takes us to the center of our existence. The path is unicursal with many twists and turns as it leads to the center and back out again. Unlike mazes, there are no dead ends in labyrinths, so the walk is safe and unobstructed.

Most labyrinths are circular in shape with two patterns predominating: the Medieval Design (also known as the Chartres Design) with eleven circuits and the Classical Design (also called the Cretan Design) consisting of seven circuits. Labyrinth sites throughout the world can be found using the Labyrinth Locator ( which is jointly sponsored by Veriditas and The Labyrinth Society.
