In the spirit of the Big Connection labyrinth experiment conducted by The Legacy Labyrinth Project on World Labyrinth Day this year (May 1, 2021),we would like to implement the Global Healing Response to create connection, healing, and coherence with a unified intention for those who are suffering. People all over the world are being faced with actual storms from the weather and fire, storms of displacement, war, and illness. Those who are supporting these efforts need our energy, too.
As you might remember from previous Global Healing Responses (Katrina, Myanmar, Haiti, Japan, Hurricane Sandy), the GHR is an international effort through which countless labyrinths will be made available worldwide for people to walk, with a unified intention to bring peace and coherence to the world.
Thank you to The Legacy Labyrinth Project, The Labyrinth Society, and Veriditas for sharing many of the resources provided on this page.
Date: Saturday, September 4, 2021 at noon, your local time.
If that day is not convenient feel free to choose a time that works for you and your community.
Suggested Intention for this walk:
My intention for this labyrinth walk is to feel the coherent energy of my own heart, then send that coherent energy to______________ (you fill in the blank).
(something you can read to yourself, prior to saying and walking with your intention).
I fully release and let go of those things I cannot change. I let go of my fear of my own challenging world and that of the outside world.
I breathe into my heart; I exhale from my heart.
Let me begin my labyrinth walk with untying my own knots of chaos.
I breath into my heart; I exhale from my heart.
I begin to feel the heart center opening.
Turmoil and disaster undo the world beyond my world. When I take a breath into my heart center, I steady my own energy, my own world.
When I breath into my heart I feed my spirit with the sustainer of life, the breath.
When I exhale from the heart, I am able to direct the gift of heart energy to anyone, anywhere.
I know this to be true.
I am grateful for this practice as I know I am full of generous potential, and capable of sharing it with others.
I open my heart wide proclaiming myself as a resource for humanity.
I begin walking my labyrinth, centered, unburdened, and connected to all.
We connect as One, when we share our heart’s coherent energy.

Covid Considerations: Click here for information about how to conduct a Covid friendly event and create a Covid friendly labyrinth. Of course, it is necessary to adhere to all Covid 19 recommendations that apply to your community. If you are walking in a group, perhaps outdoors would be best. It is also an option to meet with a group virtually and walk finger labyrinths in unison. And please, don’t underestimate the power of each of us walking a labyrinth alone with our unified intention.
Centering Ourselves: To create peace and healing we must commit to centering ourselves before we form a group and enter the labyrinth. I invite you to watch the videos that were created by The Legacy Labyrinth Project about How to Walk a Labyrinth with Intention and How to create Brain Heart Coherence.
Please let us know when you will be having a walk by posting it on the Global Healing Response Facebook page or as a comment below this post.
I urge you to pass this information on to anyone (or group) who might be interested in participating in the Global Healing Response. We learned during other responses that those outside the labyrinth community wanted to participate. Hopefully, that will be the case this time.
Remember, never underestimate the power of the labyrinth AND unified healing energy!
Peace and Healing,
