The Labyrinth is a symbol of the spiritual journey to the center. It’s the outward sign of the inner pilgrimage. Originally found in ancient Crete, the Labyrinth symbol has appeared in many cultures. From Cornwall England, to the Hopi Indians. From Cathedrals in Europe to modern day uses by Churches, Hospitals, and Spiritual Centers.
Walking a labyrinth, or tracing the pattern with your fingers, brings a deep sense of peace and harmony. Perhaps it is because you must focus on one step at a time, trusting that the journey will always lead to your Center, even when it appears you are traveling in the opposite direction.

Life Path Finger Labyrinth
Trace the Path - Find Your Center
This colorful, handcrafted, 6" porcelain finger labyrinth is a trivet plate, hand painted, then fired to achieve a crackled glass effect for the path, with a raised border between each path.
The classic 7-circuit design dates back over 4,000 years. 7 paths, or circuits, with raised borders, lead to the center, or goal. Use as a finger labyrinth for relaxation, centering and intuitive insights.. Use as a color therapy tool to balance the energies of body, mind, and spirit.
By tracing the circuit of the labyrinth, with eyes open or with eyes closed, you experience ancient body/mind healing energies. Feelings, sensations, memories, and images often rise to the surface, providing insights to solve problems and resolve issues in your life. Profound relaxation and healing occur while using this sacred geometry tool.
Trace the path slowly. Many prefer to use a finger from their non-dominant hand to enhance intuition and creativity.
Use this finger labyrinth to bring the energies of Peace, Love, and Well Being into your life.
Note: Because the labyrinths are hand-crafted, each one is unique. Slight variations are to be expected.

These wonderful labyrinth rocks are REAL STONE, etched by a unique sand blasting process to provide small inserted path sides with the labyrinth path raised between the sides. This classic 7 circuit labyrinth design was found on a 3500 year old rock carving on a cliff near the village of Tintagel in Cornwall, England and has been called the Arthurian Stone, associated with King Arthur's vision of peace and enlightenment in Camelot.
NOTE: These are real river stones, so the colors, weight, size and finish will vary within the guidelines and photos above. Some imperfections in finish are to be expected in these real stones. All stones come with a story card. A stylus will not work with the rock labyrinths, as the Path is raised, not lowered as in the pewter labyrinths.
MORE ABOUT LABYRINTHS
The classical labyrinth has only one path to the center, with no dead-ends. One of the best known patterns was incorporated into the floor pavement of the Chartres Cathedral, near Paris, France, around 1200 AD. It is an eleven circuit design divided into four quadrants. This labyrinth pattern was originally intended to be walked as a pilgrimage, a questing or searching journey with the hope of becoming closer to God. It often served as a symbolic substitute for the actual pilgrimage to Jerusalem and was called the “Chemin de Jerusalem” or Road to Jerusalem.
When walking, or tracing the pattern, of the Chartres labyrinth, its rhythmic nature is noticeable. The path inward is of increasing amplitude, with smaller inner circles progressing to larger outer circles. The entrance to the center happens during the most energetic phase, created by movements of the larger circles. The path going out is one of decreasing amplitude. Thus, the labyrinth walk re-creates our natural cycles of expansion and contraction and connects us to our very own energies.
A labyrinth is made to be walked. It is a journey into our own centers. Even walking a finger labyrinth with one’s fingertip or visually traveling the labyrinth with one’s eyes will arouse kinesthetic sensations. One “feels” a labyrinth as much as one travels it.
Labyrinths have re-gained popularity in the last 20 years as powerful spiritual tools. Walking the labyrinth while in contemplation or meditation can arouse deep feelings of peace and calm, resulting in healing and feelings of great well being. Labyrinths are currently being used not only in Churches, but in hospitals, community centers, and recreation areas by those who wish to experience a gentle walk to peace of mind, body, and spirit.
