GHR 2018 Q3: Light/Shine Your Light for Others

Dear Facilitators,

As this time of year brings a warmer and brighter earth (at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere), let our lights shine brighter, too. As our meditation points out, we can bring our lights to the darkness and also warm those places that are cold. It may take courage (lots of courage) to illuminate the dark, but we can do it! We have the tools of the labyrinth, our community with each other and our communities where we live.

Keep your light burning glowing with lots of self care. It’s easy to “burn the candle at both ends,” as they say. One person doesn’t need to handle the burden of all the problems—Many candles make a bright light.

Thank you for all you do in the world!

Peace & Healing,

Ellen Bintz Meuch

2018 Theme: Light

To love beauty is to see light. —Victor Hugo


Focus:  Shine Your Light for Others

Quote: “The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by.”  — Felix Adler

Picture/Symbol: Torch


I share my light of love so that I may
…Illuminate a path for those who are stumbling.
…Brighten a dark corner where fear incubates.
…Glow for those who have found too much comfort in the darkness.
…Warm a heart that has grown cold.
…Torch injustice and blaze luminous beams on a situation that has slipped away from integrity.
…Shine with others to create a rising sun of hope for peace everlasting.
                                                                                 —Ellen Bintz Meuch

Ideas for benefiting organization: I found a very interesting organization called “The Compassion Games”. They have an opportunity to “Build a Global Fire.” Read about it here:

Ideas for ambiance: Begin the walk in near darkness, as the walk progresses, turn the lights on slowly. Or, have each person hold a votive light that is electric. When they feel their light “shine.”

Music: Ashana, “The Illuminated Path”:
