We Invite You to a Walking Prayer Journey
Your life is a sacred journey. And it is about change, growth, discovery, movement and transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path…exactly where you are meant to be right now. And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love.
What is a Labyrinth Prayer Walk?
The labyrinth is an ancient symbol found across many cultures and around the world. We are all on the path, exactly where we need to be. The labyrinth is a model of that path.
A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools, and are a part of the pilgrimage path to wholeness and holiness. At its most basic level the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.
A Prayer Labyrinth is located on the beautiful grounds of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word at Villa de Matel. No reservation is required to walk the labyrinth at the Villa. We are open from 9am to 8pm. Simply drive into the main gate at 6510 Lawndale, drive to the front of the Villa, sign in at the front desk to receive a visitor’s badge and parking permit, and proceed to the labyrinth located behind the Villa, adjacent to the convent cemetery.
*All your prayer requests and those of our guests submitted in the last 3 months will be burned at the conclusion of the walk.
