CBD 2017: Labyrinth Walk at Windhover

Monday, November 6, 2017

8:40 pm

Windhover Contemplative Center

Sponsored by:
Health Improvement Program, Office for Religious Life

Walk your way to a healthier outlook on life. If life has you wandering in circles, embark on a personal journey that has stood the test of time for thousands of years. Enter the labyrinth and discover that intentionally walking in a circular pattern can actually put direction back in your life – that the rhythm and simplicity of following a clear path can quiet your mind, help you find balance, pray, facilitate meditation, insight and celebration.

Come join us at the beautiful granite labyrinth at the Windhover contemplative center. Discover how truly liberated your mind and spirit can be! The looping, spiraling walking path to a rosette at the center is based on the 12th-century stone labyrinth installed in the floor of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Chartres, France. Staff from ORL and HIP will be present to welcome you to the labyrinth and offer you guidance.

Facilitators: The Rev. Joanne Sanders, D.Min., Associate Dean for Religious Life at Stanford. Rev. Sanders preaches and presides regularly at services in Memorial Church. Under her leadership, she has brought contemplative practices such as Compline, an evening candle-lit service of chanted song and the Labyrinth, an ancient guide for walking meditation and centering, to the Stanford and local community.

Tia Rich, PhD, Stanford Senior Specialist in Health Promotion, has been integrating mindfulness, compassion and meditation into stress management programs at the university and medical center since 1984. The Contemplation by Design (CBD) program is the continuation of her dedication to the resilience and well-being of the Stanford community.
