Participants will enjoy a brief history of labyrinths, which date back more than 4,000 years and appear on every continent except Antarctica. The labyrinth will be presented as a tool for self-transformation, creativity, concentration and more. After a guided imagery meditation, we will explore the interdisciplinary role of labyrinths on college campuses and discuss the permanent labyrinth installation in the works at UMass Amherst.
Madeleine Charney is a librarian at UMass Amherst specializing in the built and natural environment. She is a soon-to-be certified Veriditas labyrinth facilitator and a recently certified Koru Mindfulness teacher.
