Original Digital Art File. With the Mindful Walk labyrinth a mindful contemplative walk is as close as your hand. Prepare for your walk. Begin with mindful breathing – in, hold, and exhale. Next, enjoy Lectio Divina. Contemplate the words of scripture: “Those who are patient stay calm until the right moment, and then cheerfulness comes back to them” (Sirach 1:23). Continue to contemplate those words as you begin to walk. Start on the wrist, the location where you can find your pulse. Follow the path by circling the hand and reflecting on what your senses are offering. What are your senses telling you… what do you see… hear… smell… taste… and feel/touch? As you circle toward the center of the path meditate on how your senses are impacted by the cheerfulness noted in scripture. In the center of the design take a few deep breathes. Clear your thoughts and become centered in calmness. Enjoy the moment. When ready begin the journey back out. As you circle out of the center meditate through each of your senses imagining calmness and cheerfulness. What does cheerfulness look like… sound like… smell like… taste like… feel like? Return to where you began, at the pulse that shares all your moments. Imagine the possibilities. Begin to create a new reality. Enjoy the journey. Repeat as needed.
