cretan tracing labyrinth ~ large
big little noise
The heart labyrinth is made by hand by a beautiful small creative artist in Australia, every board cut and individually oiled with food safe oil.
The labyrinth is great for kids to come back to center, to calm themselves or have a little "time within". They are a great tool for developing mindfulness and learning the invaluable gift of calming themselves and identifying their emotions.
For children experiencing sensory overload, a labyrinth can help bring grounding, control and a sense of brain regulation. They help children develop fine motor skills and visual motor skills and are also alot of fun!
It's also fun for adults!
A labyrinth is an ancient symbol and a sacred tool that’s used in meditation and prayer. Some say labyrinths act as a metaphor for travelling inwards to the soul. Others say they act as a calming device because they simply provide people with a contemplative space to meditate. Today labyrinths are used as legitimate tools to help calm the agitated and to provide people with a helpful tool for meditation. Finger labyrinths are also used as a calming device and an aid in concentration.
There is no set way on doing your labyrinth walk same as there is no wrong way on doing it. However, to get you started, I have included with this Labyrinth a brief guide on using it as a tool for a simple meditation. Let's see where your journey takes you!

“Labyrinths, which are ancient patterns large enough to be walked or small enough to be traced with the finger, represent tools for cultivating mindful habits. Mindfulness is the contemplative practice of focusing the attention on the present, non-judgmentally. By training the mind to remain fully present in each moment, the interior mental chatter that often plagues the mind becomes quiet, enhancing capacities or equanimity, clarity, and insight…Amid a culture that rewards speed and “busyness,” contemplative practice proposes a radical innovation for teaching and learning” Artress, L. (1995). SHARESHARE ON FACEBOOK
