Cumberland Heights Labyrinth Experience Therapy
Amid all the stressors and struggles of healing from addiction, many of our patients look for natural and holistic healing practices. One way, The Labyrinth, is a path for walking meditation, and has been introduced by Cumberland Heights as a way to deal with lots of various addiction stressors. Through studies and deep personal experiences, the impact of walking the labyrinth are consistent with qualities associated with healing. Like prayer and meditation, the Labyrinth Experience is a personal and unique experience, lots of healing properties are consistently felt from patients and staff.
The walk into the labyrinth is known as purgation, where you ‘purge’, release, empty and quiet your mind, body, soul and spirit. It is there that we let go of things that block communication with our Spirit source and let go of control. The second stage is in the center and is called illumination. The illogical winding path that takes us there culminates in us realizing we are there, fully present in the moment. It is a time of prayer and meditation and clarity of life and our problems. Union is the stage where we leave the center following the same path out, feeling grounded, empowered and integrating the information we have learned to help us on our journey of life. During the entire walk we spend time with Spirit in silence, listening for answers to the questions we brought into the labyrinth.
