Picture/symbol: Robin—With the robin we can expect new growth to occur in all areas of our life—to open our hearts and spread our wings.      

Color:  Orange

Divine Light, Creator of the universe, Your Love and Light is within and around all of us. It is in the galaxies and the smallest grains of sand. May our creativity and daring growth be inspired by the images of this vast universe. Give us the courage to bring to consciousness the sacredness of the universe and the interrelationship with our earth community. May our walk within the ancient paths of this archetypical labyrinth imprint a new birth that shares in the awe and wonder of those first beginnings.  —Bonnie Odiorne

Ideas for benefiting organization: Honor an innovative program that is trying to reach people in a new way.  Perhaps an organization that provides micro loans to people wanting to create new businesses in impoverished countries?

Ideas for ambiance: Supply journaling paper, sketching paper, colored pencils, pens, stamps for participants to express their creative ideas after their walk.
