Thankfulness Walk

As you continue to walk alone on labyrinth paths around your community during this time of Thanksgiving, be mindful and thankful of the blessings that have crossed your own path. You also might consider those with greater needs and how you might make a difference in their lives. Perhaps donate non-perishable foods or send funds to a local food bank. In Santa Fe, please consider a donation to the Food Depot at https://www.thefooddepot.org

In memory of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and, unfortunately, so many other victims of racism, the following is offered for those walkers (either by foot or with fingers) who wish to focus more on current events in our country:

Remember (as you pause before entering) those who have been harmed over centuries because of racist practices and set an intention. You may wish to reflect on a list of names.

Release (as you walk in)any intolerance you may acknowledge within yourself or your community. Nobody is perfect and change begins with one small step, something you can actually control.

Receive (as you pause in the center) any inspiration to increase peace, tolerance, and invitations of inclusion within your personal practices. The more concrete this is, the better.

Return (as you leave the center) committed to beginning or continuing practices of justice and antiracism that lead to peace. Perhaps you can visualize your actions in your home and neighborhood.

Reflect (as you pause after you have exited) on your walk and anything you may feel that you have learned.

Eldorado Community Creates Canned Food Labyrinth of Giving

Labyrinth Resource Group members and their 405-can Labyrinth of Giving!

     On Saturday, Nov 16th, the Labyrinth Resource Group hosted a Canned Food Drive at the Eldorado Supermarket…..with a twist!  As shoppers brought their donations from the store, they placed them on the patio along the lines of a chalk labyrinth.   In the end, 405 cans created a beautiful canned food labyrinth!   The donations were boxed and delivered to Bienvenidos Food Pantry to help feed hungry souls in Santa Fe.  Our thanks to Eldorado Supermarket and Bienvenidos, and especially the shoppers for making this event a great success.  We hope to make this an annual event!
