2015 Full Moon Labyrinth Gatherings at the Otto Labyrinth Park

Friday evenings, 7-9 pm, April 3, May 1, June 5, July 3, July 31 (Blue Moon), August 28
Friday evenings, 6-8 pm, September 25 and October 30.

Gatherings are held rain or shine. The Welcome Center opens at 1 pm and stays open before and after the Gathering.

The Otto Labyrinth was opened to the public as a non profit Park in 1998. Our first Gathering had 3 people. In the 18 years since opening, we have hosted over 130 Gatherings. Some have been small groups of 5-10 people, others have been large groups of over 50 people. Like a meditation, the heart of each Gathering is Connection - connecting to Nature, the Elementals, Universal Energy, and Our inner Selves and to Each Other.

Each Gathering has the same 3 parts. Repetition creates relaxation. Knowing what to expect allows us to release the outer and go deeper into our True Selves.

  • First we meet and greet each other and take a walk in the Faerie Forest. Fairies have participated in each Gathering from the beginning. Some people see them, some feel them, some just imagine them. They are joyous beings who wish to share and like being invited!
  • Second we walk as a group to the Center of the Labyrinth, sometimes with music, other times in the silence of nature. The walk is a way to unwind from our daily lives, to release and let go. In the center, we connect with the energy of Eath and Sky. As above, so below. We allow ourselves to feel the energy of the Labyrinth to renew balance and strength.
  • Third we gather around the open fire and drum. The masculine energy of drumming balances the feminine energy of the Labyrinth. Thus we become balanced top-bottom (sky/earth) and left-right (feminine/masculine).

A Labyrinth Gathering is a joyous group sharing and meditation, designed to renew our energy, focus our intentions, and support each other as we journey on our individual paths. We welcome you to join us for one or all of our Gatherings this year. You are always welcome.

2015 Otto Labyrinth Gatherings are on Friday evenings closest to the Full Moon, and are held rain or shine. When rain occurs the program is shifted inside. The Welcome Center is open from 1 pm on through the Gathering and open in the afternoons Wednesdays through Saturdays.

About the Presenter - Dr. Jill Henry

It all began with my dissertation at the University of Georgia in 1988 titled: Development and Learning for Transformation. After being awarded my doctoral degree, I left my position as a tenured professor of Physical Therapy at the Medical College of Georgia and opened up a metaphysical store (the only one) in Augusta, Georgia called The Relaxation Station. Here I spent the next 6 years learning the practice of metaphysics with over 100 different instructors who taught at "The Station". In 1994 I moved to the mountains and In 2004 I submitted a manuscript to Llewellyn Worldwide, who "bought" my book, titled: Energy Sourcebook, the Fundamentals of Personal Energy. My book won the prestigious COVR award for best in Alternative Medicine in 2005 and has since been translated into 4 languages across the world. I continue to work part time as a physical therapist and up until now my schedule has kept me from my first love, teaching & learning & sharing with others. I hope you join me in this series of workshops!

Certified Facilitator of Adult Learning

Become a Certified Facilitator of Adult Learning

Most teachers and trainers of adults are enthusiastic presenters who know their topics well. Many however have had no formal training in educational methodology. Helping participants learn is the point of all presentations, whether they are hour long lectures, week long seminars, business and industry training programs, or academic courses. Even if you are a natural teacher, a sound grounding in Adult Learning Theories and Strategies will take your presentations to the next level and ensure your success in helping Adults learn and grow.

Past Speakers at our Labyrinth Walk Events

Diane Wildermuth is our special guest for Friday October 10th.

Flower essence natural healing Bach Flower Remedies - Healing with Flower Energy

"Treat the person, not the disease". - Dr. Edward Bach

Dr. Edward Bach not only recognized the unique nature of each of his patients, he embraced it. He built upon and beyond his formal medical education, to develop a healing system tailor to the individual, then made it accessible to all of us.

Diane S. Wildermuth RN, BFRP has been in nursing for 35 years. She also recognized the individuality of the patients in her care. While, health care has progressed, it has become increasingly impersonal. She wondered how to keep the whole person the center of the goal of healing. She found the answer 15 years ago, when introduced to the healing power of flower energy, in the form of Bach Flower Remedies. In 2013, she became certified as a Bach Flower Remedy Practitioner dedicated to bringing Dr. Bach's unique, all natural and effective healing method to the ancestors of the unique individuals, that he cared for 80 years ago.

          Dr. Barbara Meister Vitale is our special guest for August 8th

          Barbara will share her own unique wisdom with us!

          "My Celtic Grandmother taught me many ancient beliefs. I remember her saying, "Be careful what you love and what you fear, for they will both become a part of your life! Be careful what you Judge, for that's what you will become! One of the Lakota elders has said many times, "We come here to remember - Life is about loving everything." When we choose to see Love, hear Love, and think Love we will become Love! When we become Love we then understand what MI TAKAYE OYASIN (all my relations) means. There are no boundaries between the sacred plants, sacred rocks, sacred songs, sacred dances, sacred medicine, and hu-mans. As we respect and heal our Mother through daily rituals, she will share the knowledge we need to heal ourselves. As we heal, our walk upon this Earth we heal others. As you speak, remember, I am you. You are me. We are both all of Everything.

          Special guest Edd Edwards, Bio-Intrinsic Resonant Energy Specialist, will be at the Labyrinth Park Welcome Center from 5 to 7 pm to "Light us Up" with his special energy healing.


          About Edd Edwards
          "I am a energetic tune up specialist. I tune up the electrical systems of a clients body and it is the healing mechanism that I cause to function properly and super charge its energy storage systems for prolonged benefits." Edd Edwards


          Edd L. Edwards was born and raised in Clayton, Georgia, He operates a custom photo and printing studio that he inherited from his grandparents. Edd was born with his Grandmother's gift of energy.
          In 1994 he met the distinguished physicist, Dr. William Levengood of Grass Lake, Michigan. Dr. Levengood was able to measure and quantify Edd's energy output in his laboratory. For several years Edd worked on laboratory experiments with Dr. Levengood, as well as with Dr. John Gedye and Charles Pyler. He learned how to increase his energy output, to turn the energy output off completely, to control the switch of the polarity of the energy from positive to negative, and to affect the lab equipment from a great distance (even thousands of miles. Today Edd travels the country "lighting up" people with his incredible healing energy. For Further information about Edd and to view his live broadcasts, visit EddEdwards.com

          • Bio-intrinsic energy healing is the use of the power of brain functions to resonate with and positively activate metabolic healing.
          • It works by controlling the magnetic fields of the left and the right sides of the brain simultaneously. And by using different frequencies and polarity effects to cause rapid healing to begin.
          • Edd teaches others to get started and encourages them to play with the energy. The more one puts into practicing, the more their energy increases.
