One of the reason why I am building these Carpet Labyrinths is to bring them to the public space and reach to the community. A portable labyrinth that can easily be put together for the use and enjoyment of the public. Either in a street, in a plaza or in the courtyard of a church, a labyrinth helps build community and create a container for ritual. Walking a labyrinth can be a form of body prayer, a pilgrimage or a deep meditation tool.
Below there are some ideas of how to integrate an art project into a spiritual public space and at the same time serve as a tool for transformation. At Grace Cathedral, Saint Ignatius Church and Saint Mary the Assumption in San Francisco.
