Labyrinth Workshop


OCTOBER 18, 2014  9:00AM - 11:00AM

Shamanic Gardening by Melinda Joy Miller

Walking a Classical Seven-Circuit Labyrinth allows a step into the historical past stretching back at least 3200 years. Walking through its form feels calming, comfortable, and harmonious. The experience gives the mind a chance to slow down and get focused.

Melinda Joy Miller, founder of the Shambhalla Institute and author of Shamanic Gardening is a medicine woman, cultural anthropologist, a master in feng shui, and a sustainable gardener. This 2 hour workshop covers the history, benefits and creation of the Labyrinth on Saturday, October 18, 2014 from 9am to 11am, at The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail, 11490 Monte Vista Rd, Clermont, Fl 34711.

You will learn:
* An easy, step-by-step method to draw, and install a personal labyrinth for your daily inspiration.
* How to use the labyrinth as a tool to achieve clarity of thought.
* How to get solutions for difficult situations.
* How to build community toward closer relationships with self, family, and friends.

Have a chance to win a Labyrinth Assessment for a precise location on your property with respect to the best alignment with surrounding environment, the house location, existing gardens, wind movement, the Four Sacred Directions, and your goal of intent.

Her book, Shamanic Gardening: Timeless Techniques for the Modern Sustainable Garden integrates sustainable, ancient and traditional gardening methods with Shaman principles, and modern permaculture.
