The labyrinth is an archetype, a divine imprint, found in all religious traditions in various forms around the world. By walking this labyrinth, we are rediscovering a long-forgotten mystical tradition.
Drawn to the experience of sacred geometry when walking a labyrinth, Joan proposed the installation of a nine-circuit path Labyrinth with an interactive element for this city -wide Art and the Environment exhibition organized by the Nelson Fine Art Museum, Tempe, AZ. Joan was granted the requested space under the Tempe bridge and over the course of several days, she hand delivered river rock from the dry river bed near by, to the installation site. Here she navigated the center and built the Labyrinth. Individuals were invited to first inscribe a word or message onto a clay shard and carry it on their walk to the center where upon they would set it into the small fire pit to burn & release. Musician William Eaton was commissioned to play for the event. His ethereal sounds vibrated around and through the space. Others played the crystal bowls, drummed and became the important “witness” to those taking the walk.
Walking a Labyrinth is a metaphor for life and a powerful meditation tool. The walk invites personal reflection. Sacred Geometry explores universal patterns often found in nature and is found to be the foundation for the architectural design of sacred structures such as temples, churches, mosques and gardens.
