Two New Santa Rosa Labyrinths~ Australia ~South Africa

I am very pleased to share these two very diverse labyrinths, made from my Santa Rosa Labyrinth design...

Today I heard from Lorraine Rodda (The Labyrinth Society Regional Rep in Australia). She sent these amazing pictures of the Santa Rosa Labyrinth they created at the edge of the sea out of rock and seaweed. Lorraine said, that "they had an exciting talk with an indigenous Australian about the way they use the bora grounds and how they are created. Tonight at the Santa Rosa Seaside Mediation Labyrinth, they will focus on nature and healing from an indigenous perspective. A labyrinth walk will follow to the vibrational healing sounds of the didjeridoo.

Over the holidays, I heard from Dawn Myburgh of Somerset West, South Africa. Dawn lives on an organic vegetable farm just outside of Cape Town. She has created a beautiful Santa Rosa Labyrinth there of stones and grass...

Dawn is a Reiki Master and therapist (combining Reiki and Reflexology. Her therapy room opens out onto the labyrinth. This allows her to offer a labyrinth walk as part of the therapy session and to her yoga students. This labyrinth was opened on the full moon of November 24th, and they continue to hold walks every full moon.

Dawn says that the upright stone at the heart space, just behind her, was "obtained from a neighboring farm - sometimes it has a face on the front and then at night the image changes to a woman holding a child. People have found several other images on the stone."

I continue to be in such awe of the beauty that people bring to their labyrinth making. Thank you Lorraine and Dawn for sharing this beauty with me and the people that walk and contemplate this meandering path that you share continents away...
