Walk around the World

World Labyrinth Day 2020
The Labyrinth Society

What an amazing 24 hours! Many thanks to everyone who took part in our Walk around the World event and many other celebrations of World Labyrinth Day. It was an unexpected idea that came only two weeks before World Labyrinth Day. It was in the end, despite the hiccups and difficulties, a truly wonderful event. It was meaningful and moving to come together as a worldwide labyrinth community and share this time.

About the Event

Walk around the World was a bit of an experiment, with all of us--organizers, volunteers, and participants--navigating so many new things at once. There were multiple audio issues, live mic gaffes, family member cameos, and technical issues scattered throughout the 24 hours. It's difficult to say exactly how many participated in this event (1000+), and the response was so much more than anticipated when we first discussed the possibility. Despite all of these snafus, the feedback we have heard so far indicates that overall this event made it possible for us to come together across time zones in profoundly connecting and moving ways.

Labyrinths connect us and, despite the necessity of canceling the in-person Gathering this fall, TLS promises to strengthen and deepen this connection in the coming months. Thank you, stay safe and well, and blessings to all.
