Kincardine Labyrinth Peace Garden is located in the heart of Kincardine at
Geddes Environmental Park.
This labyrinth, known as
the 'Chalice' design, has sculpted gardens and paths
based on a Classical Labyrinth pattern, similar to the
design of one in the cathedral at Chartres, France.
It all began when several
Kincardine residents, having had the opportunity to walk
labyrinths on separate occasions around the globe, were
compelled to see a labyrinth in their own town.
Collectively, they began a group known as Friends of the
Labyrinth Peace Gardens. With much enthusiasm, commitment
and hard work the Labyrinth was realized.
The flowers that border the
paths of the Labyrinth Peace Garden emerge in a rainbow
of colour, evoking subtle energies that quiet the mind
and allow the inner wisdom to be heard. This
meditative walk to the centre and back out is a metaphor
for our life's journey to inner peace. By finding peace
within, we attain peace without, not only in our lives,
but in the world, too.
Today this ancient
meditative tool is making a renaissance all over the
world. Once again you'll find labyrinths in
churches, universities, private gardens -- indeed almost
The Kincardine Labyrinth Peace Garden is open to all
visitors, and has been used for such events as Peace Vigils and Labyrinth Workshops. 'Friends' of the Labyrinth have successfuly raised funds to make its wide paths
of stonedust completely wheel chair accessible. The
addition of a kiosk provides visitors with information on Labyrinths and thanks our volunteers. Indeed some of the best photos are on the Volunteer Thanks page.
You are invited to visit our Labyrinth Garden and take a walk for peace
whenever you wish.
