“ We are not human beings on a spiritual path. We are spiritual beings on a human path. “
— Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
The labyrinth is an archetype, a divine imprint, found in religious traditions in various forms around the world. By walking the labyrinth we are discovering a long forgotten mystical tradition.
A Cretan-style, 7-circuit labyrinth, overlooking Lake Michigan, graces our outdoor environment. The Cretan labyrinth has been found on the isle of Crete, and was walked as a symbol of the spiritual journey as far back as 2600 BC.
Siena Retreat Center also has an indoor 11-circuit, Chartres labyrinth. The Chartres design originated in Roman times and was also built into the marble floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France in the 1200’s AD.
