Labyrinth is a crucible for change, a field of Light, a Cosmic dance"
is an ancient pattern found in cultures around the world in many
different forms. While the origins of the labyrinth are a mystery,
evidence of these patterns date back thousands of years.
The Labyrinth is a spiritual
tool that assists us in entering into a state of conscious presence, a
place of stillness and surrender. Unlike a Maze, which has many
confusing paths designed to challenge our minds, the Labyrinth is
One Path in
One Path out
and facilitates a quieting
within. We begin at the mouth of the circle at the outer edge &
move in a very circuitous route to center, then wind our way back out
along the same path. As we enter into the sacred geometric
template of the spiral, we are guided gently to the Center. By entering
into the labyrinth, we are infinitely held in a womb of Sacred Space.

Eloiwa will custom-design a Labyrinth Journey to complement your
personal and community vision and needs. The Labyrinth is an archetype
of the beauty of the 'circle', where within, we recognize the unified
field of love, the unity of all hearts and the stillness of our Soul.
The Labyrinth can be utilized as a tool for community-building, honoring
sacred ritual, activating our quest for deepening our spirit, opening
our hearts, activating the Song of our Soul, creating inner peace and
awakening the intuitive within us.
Modern Labyrinths are emerging on the earth around the world. They are
found in sites at varied medical centers, hospitals, churches, prisons,
spas and memorial parks. They are open to all people as a
non-denominational, cross-cultural tool of well-being. The
labyrinth is a gift of quieting the mind, finding balance, meditation,
insight and celebration.
Van Allyn, Environmental Artist, Leucadia, California
a gift of divine synchronicity, I had the opportunity to meet Kirk in
San Diego following a Women's Labyrinth Retreat Weekend. I
discovered through this meeting, that he utilizes the ocean beach as his
sacred canvas to create various imprints of Sacred Geometry. These
huge and beloved forms of the Labyrinth, the Ohm and Flower of Life are
created with an inward dance of sound and offered to all of humanity to
discover. Kirk shared that one of his greatest JOYS comes from the
incredible delight of others when they come across these imprints during
their beach meanderings. For Kirk, the creation of these is a
'meditation'. They emerge at low tide and are carried back by the
sea. The metaphor of 'impermanence' is a deep and abiding gift for
my heart, a reminder that in creation, the greatest gift is
that it is EXPERIENCED.
this meeting with Kirk, I asked if he would be open to share how this
inspiration was birthed for him. He shared, "I was moving on the beach
one day, flowing and circling in the dance of music. To my surprise, I
discovered that in my swirling, I had created interesting patterns in
the sand. The mathematical proportions began to just come through
to feel the emotions welling up in my heart, as I felt the reflection of
pure love and purity in which he shared. His greatest JOY, I
envisioned from this sharing, was the sacred offering
of this experience to humanity.
Kirk, I celebrate your dance of light, motion and sound.
gratitude for awakening our consciousness and our hearts!

gulls, glistening sand, the beauty of sacred geometry – the gift of a
gentle man to all who came to walk or watch sharing the beauty and
wonder of creation".
