CCU students create labyrinth to promote mindfulness practices
A labyrinth is a geometric pattern that meanders to a center and contains only one path in. Labyrinths have been found worldwide, with the earliest known labyrinth dating back to 4,000 years ago.
According to Amanda Todd, Ph.D., lecturer of human geography in the Department of Anthropology and Geography, students in the class have explored the aspects of space at various scales for geographical sites and analyzed the physical terrain and structures built within spaces that serve a sacred purpose for society.
“The labyrinth will be available until next spring for individuals, groups, organizations, campus offices and classes to use,” Todd said. “The labyrinth space may also be used for contemplative pedagogy practices within the Spadoni College of Education and Social Sciences.”
