Farmington Hills Labyrinth Walks

Posted by Lisa LaGrou July 14, 2012 Local Activities

altA long time ago, before my husband and I had children, we took a vacation to Green Valley Spa and Resort in Utah for a relaxing spa vacation. One of the features Green Valley has is a Labyrinth Walk. I had never heard of Labyrinth Walks before and found them extremely relaxing.

The City of Farmington Hills has offered relaxing Labyrinth Walks at Heritage Park in the summer. Now, Farmington Hills offering the Labyrinth walks this winter at the Costick Center. The Labyrinth walks are also available to non-residents.

Labyrinth Walks are relaxing, meditative walks through a tranquil maze. The walks are not like a nature hike. They are very “new age” and participants are guided through a maze designed to provoke labyrinth walkers to ponder their inner-self. It may sound “out there” but Labyrinth Walks are quite peaceful and I’m thrilled that we have something like this in our area at Heritage Park and the Costick Center to check out!

Summer Labyrinth Walks: Life Coach Kathy Igoe will guide participants on a meditative walk through a labyrinth located near the North Picnic Shelter at Heritage Park. Walking a labyrinth is intended to be a relaxing and reflective experience. It has been found to slow the heart rate, quiet the mind, and inspire creative thinking.

Winter Labyrinth Walks: Life Coach Kathy Igoe walks will be held at the Costick Center and provide a positive living workshop for the new year. Participants will create a vision board for positive action and aligned vision in 2012, materials provided.
