An ancient art form has come into the garden on Vashon Island, where eight labyrinths will be open to the public on Saturday September 24th from 10 am to 4 pm. Here's your chance to spend a beautiful autumn afternoon touring Vashon Island, walking in a tradition going back thousands of years. The fall tour is hosted by the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit labyrinth committee, their friends and the Western Washinton Labyrinth Network (who knew??).
From large, public labyrinths to more intimately scaled ones in private gardens, each labyrinth is unique in design and setting. Some destinations will feature music and dance. Pick up maps and directions for the self-guided tour at the Episcopal Church at 15420 Vashon Highway Southwest at 10:00 a.m. the church will host a talk about the tradition and history of labyrinths to kick off the day. Suggested donation of $10 for the full tour.
