Find a labyrinth to be creative
Who would think of a labyrinth to stimulate one’s creativity?
But it seems it can be a powerful tool to find inspiration and resolve problems. Walking a labyrinth can even be a powerful spiritual experience. Apparently.
Daniel Pink mentions the healing power of labyrinths in his excellent book, A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future: How to Thrive in the New Conceptual Age, whic I highly recommend.
Here some thoughts on Labyrinths:
Today, labyrinths are still being used throughout the world as meditative and healing tools. When considering the labyrinth, there are only two choices: walk it, or don’t walk it! If walked, it can change one’s life.
A labyrinth is a right brain task. It involves intuition, creativity, and imagery.lAt its most basic level the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the centre of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.As you shift your direction you also shift your awareness from right brain to left brain
As you walk the path, thoughts and ideas may rise up for you and in you — often in refreshing and startling ways
I’d really love to have a labyrinth to use. Note that you don’t need a proper labyrinth but it could be drawn on the ground.
I’m sure going through this experience with a question in mind for a project would help finding answers and help release creativity when stressed out in the office enviromnent.
Only tricky to do so in London!
