Meditation space marked out on riverside

RETURN: The riverside labyrinth artwork at Newtown.

A temporary labyrinth artwork has returned to provide a meditation space on the banks of the Barwon River in Geelong.

Western Heights Uniting Church “meditation community” With Intention sprayed-painted the labyrinth on grass at the end of Newtown’s Craigie Rd as “a space to slow down, re-centre and reconnect”, City Hall said.

Visitors who walked the artwork’s outline in recent years had described the experience as “very peaceful”.

You are encouraged to take time out from the busy Christmas period to slow down and reconnect with yourself and find meaning in the everyday.

“In today’s busy and often challenging world it is important to slow down and reflect every now and again. Many people find that engaging with arts and culture is a good way to do this,” said councillor Jim Mason.

“The labyrinth is a terrific initiative, and has clearly been a source of calm for many people. I encourage everyone to visit and walk the labyrinth, particularly if you are feeling stressed or need some time for inner reflection.

“In my student days I found that reflection was the best way to improve my memory and self-awareness, so I’ve made time for it ever since.”
