The labyrinth is often confused with the symbol of the maze, but they’re actually different. Whereas a maze has a choice of paths that can be taken and a puzzle to solve, a labyrinth has only one path in and one path out; there are no dead ends to face or wrong turns to make.
Walking the labyrinth has been popular for centuries and is used in meditation and journeying work. Many old labyrinths still exist around the world, for people to walk, but it’s also possible to create your own. The symbol of the labyrinth reminds us to focus on our own, unique inner journey and take time to experience and rejoice in wholeness and sacred space.
