Opening of Labyrinth
Located at Ferrari Park in Mooroopna, the Ferrari Park Labyrinth is set to be officially opened this Sunday, October 30 and is designed to provide a way to quiet the mind, to be in touch with our bodies, to notice the natural world and to increase our awareness of self in relationship with others.
Community of Labyrinths project member, Lisa Shortridge said, “This labyrinth is a Community of Labyrinths project supported with funding through the Mooroopna Community Plan Steering Group Community Plan Implantation Fund. “The story began on World Labyrinth Day in 2010 when a temporary labyrinth was placed on this site in Mooroopna. It was used and supported by the community until it was made permanent this year with assistance from the Greater Shepparton City Council.
“The labyrinth can be a promoter of relaxation, inspiration, creativity, self knowledge and healing. It is a walking meditation, a sacred space, a form of gentle exercise and a simple way to relax. It provides only one route to the centre and back out again unlike a maze, which has many tricks and turns.
The sacred geometry of the labyrinth provides a balanced and serene space for the body, mind and soul to come to rest in harmony. Walking can become deeply meditative.
We invite the community to come down on Sunday and learn about the labyrinth for themselves.”
The official ‘opening of the Ferrari Park Labyrinth will take place from 1:30pm on Sunday, October 30 at Ferrari Park in Mooroopna (behind the Rodney Neighbourhood Kindergarten on Echuca Road).
