Spring Renewal Labyrinth Event A Wonderful Success

Labyrinth designer David Blonski and retreat owner Rob Edwards have scheduled four labyrinth retreats to coincide with this years solstices and equinoxes at the Ariadne Retreat Center in Georgetown, California.  Our first retreat on March 23-25, celebrated spring renewal and a new-moon planting to foster the growth of the seeds of transformation in our personal lives and for the planet.  It was a weekend of yoga, tai chi, massage, music, labyrinth walks and healing for all who attended.

Special guest, cultural historian, Kayleen Asbo, delighted us all with her interpretations of the myths of Ariadne, Theseus, the Minotaur and Dionysus and how these stories related to the use of the labyrinth as a tool for personal transformation.  We all came away with a warm glow in our hearts and smiles upon our faces.
