Labyrinth Stone Carving from Grace Cathedral San Franscisco, California
Laid out on the floor of Grace Cathedral is a labyrinth that is based on the famous medieval labyrinth of Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres (The Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres) located in Chartres, France. It is said that if a visitor walks the pattern of the labyrinth it will bring them to a meditative state. There is also another labyrinth outside of the cathedral in its courtyards.
We walked the two labryinths, they have one outdoor and on indoors. I preferred the indoor, carpeted one as I enjoyed the beauty and quiet of the church. It was relaxing and calming, but I can't say it brought my husband or I to a meditative state. Check out the links above to see pictures of the labryinth and the beautiful Grace Cathedral.
I found this video on Youtube that shows the outdoor labyrinth and Grace Cathedral.
