Byron Bay Sacred Waters Labyrinth

As I took visitors and locals along the foreshore telling stories of place in place, I came to see how a place-making event could activate some of the open air spaces there.

On November 2 and 3, my friend, artist Jacquelina Wills installed an ephemeral labyrinth dedicated to the Sacred Waters along the grassy Byron Bay foreshore, with help from me and her partner, Peter Hensen . The Byron Shire Council gave us a small seed grant, but asked we make it last a month.

In the New Year, when Jacquelina and I get back from our respective travels, we hope to write more about the amazing experiences, synergies and synchronicities which have happened since we created the labyrinth there.

SUPPORT

I have won a 50% scholarship to do labyrinth facilitators training mid January which I am looking forward to also. If you would like to make a contribution towards the other 50% and/or travel costs you can do so at our Chuffed crowdfunding campaign.

Below is the press release I sent to the Echo which is printed on p 63.

Though the Byron Bay temporary labyrinth had a Closing Ceremony recently, it has been so enthusiastically embraced by locals and visitors alike and is still looking so beautiful, that Council have allowed it to remain. Hundreds of people have walked the labyrinth and hugged the tree at the centre. Indeed, though most of the celebrations for the Soul Street New Years celebrations will happen along Jonson Street, the labyrinth will be listed as one of the activities the community can engage with to see the New Year in. 
An ancient form of walking meditation, the labyrinth is the perfect way to let go of the old as you walk to the centre, and then open yourself to the new at the heart of the labyrinth.
Give the tree in the middle a big long hug and it will hug you back. Read more at http://www.storiesonfoot.com/labyrinth.
