Labyrinth

Wakefield

Wakefield_Cathedral_Nave

Last weekend we were in Wakefield for the Food, Drink and Rhubarb Festival. In the middle of the demonstration tents and stalls was the Cathedral. And in the cathedral was a labyrinth.

Why a labyrinth? Other than some French cathedrals have them? And what are they for?

The Wakefield labyrinth has instructions on how to unburden yourself on the inward journey, to wait in contemplation in the centre and to return to the word with what you have found. It all sounds very personal for something in such a public place. so why is it in such a prominent location?

It is said that at one time the labyrinth in Chartres Cathedral was used for dancing by the clergy at Easter, I’d like to see them do that in Wakefield.
