I found the website for The Labyrinth Society today here. Fantastic information, images and links. Well worth a visit.

Labyrinth and hea;th

The Sydney Morning Herald story "Labyrinths offer a new path to health" September 16, 2010.

In the article Dr Michael Stevens a paediatric oncologist at The Childrens Hospital, Westmead, Sydney says "Labyrinths are an excelent tool for frightened, anxious and worried people all of whom we have here. A labyrinth in the grounds would be very helpful and would benefit our patients, staff and visiting family and friends."

Helen Malcolm a General Practioner and Seniour Lecturer in Rural General Practice at the University of Melbourne, uses a canvas labyrinth with patients, staff and family. She says
"The scientific evidence is well established that meditation helps physical and mental health, and the labyrinth is a walking form of meditation."

This is how my philosophical point of view as an artist corresponds with medical professionals and scientific research in recognising the importance of the labyrinth.

Thank you Robert for the inspiration

Photos of Robert and labyrinth

Robert Armstrong - Olive Grower, whose gold and silver award winning olives and olive oil are Australian icons - inspired me to discover the labyrinth. We built this one (pictured) out of stones from his land amongst the olive groves. Quartz, red stones and granite, everyone a gem. And placed in the most ideal space for a labyrinth.
