As spring and summer arrive, so will a new labyrinth, with new growth from its various plants, herbs and flowers.  

 

Labyrinth at Stoweflake Vermont.

Soon the new labyrinth will emerge at the Spa in Stoweflake, Vermont.


The labyrinth features such plants as:
  • Sage – Picked and burnt to help clear and heal a space. It’s also used by resort chefs to add to dishes.
  • Lavender – Offers a wonderful calming, grounding scent.
  • Mint – The Spa Cafe adds the mint to their Mojitos. 
  • Blueberries – Cover the labyrinth and are great for families to pick and bring home with them. Resort chefs also use them. They also attract beautiful birds to the labyrinth.
  • Strawberries – Are also enjoyed by guests who come out to pick them.
Stoweflake’s extensive labyrinth is designed by Dr. Patrick MacManaway, a holistic therapist, dowser and practitioner of geomancy – the art of discerning creatively relating to the Spirit of Peace. Dr. MacManaway, president of the British Society of Dowsers, is the author of “Dowsing For Health” (Lorenz 2002) and has a degree in medicine from the University of Edinburgh

A modern version of a centuries-old meditative therapy, it was re-born in August 2003 when the 50,000-square-foot Spa at Stoweflake debuted its classical, seven-circuit labyrinth, offering guests a serene and relaxing outdoor sanctuary for peaceful reflection and stress relief.

The Spa at Stoweflake labyrinth is a winding, natural pathway composed of flowered hedgerows and other flora that, when walked, provides a meditative experience that reduces stress, renews energy levels and creates inner balance within the walker. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has no dead end and is meant to relax rather than confuse. Instead, a labyrinth combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. Walkers simply follow the path to the center and walk out again in a manner that slows them down and centers them. Walking a labyrinth is a right brain task involving intuition, creativity and imagery and its origins in spiritual and ritual traditions can be traced back as far as 1230 B.C.
