About Monica Kintigh

Welcome to Labyrinth Counseling, Consulting Training
 
 
 

A Labyrinth is not a maze, but a meditation device with a single winding path from the edge to the center. There are no tricks, choices or dead ends in a labyrinth path. The same path is used to return to the outside. Combining a number of even older symbols, including the circle, spiral and meander, the labyrinth represents the journey inward to our own true selves and back out into the everyday world.

 

Following the path of a labyrinth is a right brain activity (creative, intuitive, imaginative), and can induce or enhance a contemplative or meditative state of mind. It is a tool which can clear the mind, calm our anxieties during periods of transition and stress, guide healing, deepen self-knowledge, enhance creativity, allow for reconciliation, restore feelings of belonging to a community, and lead to personal and spiritual growth.

 

For many the labyrinth becomes a metaphor for the journey of life: although full of twists and turns, each of us is on a single path through his or her life, and yet each person's journey is a separate and distinct qualitative experience.  Modern seekers are emulating and recapturing the pilgrimage tradition of many ancient faiths.
