walking a sacred path ….

Psychotherapist and priest Dr. Lauren Artress says, “To walk a sacred path is to discover our inner sacred space: that core of feeling that is waiting to have life breathed back into it through symbols, archetypal forms like the labyrinth, rituals, stories, and myths.” In her eloquent treatise, she champions the use of the labyrinth as a way of rediscovering one’s spiritual center. In Walking a Sacred Path, written in 1995, Artress tells the story of her own spiritual seeking and how a labyrinth came to be built at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. Sharing the vision of sacred geometry through the ages, she poetically recounts its wonderful effects. The author is deeply concerned about the environmental and spiritual crisis near the end of the millennium and offers illumination on the path to greater self-understanding, healing, and true spirituality. “Religion,” she says, quoting an unknown source, “is for those scared to death of hell. Spirituality is for those who’ve been there.”
