You are invited to A Carnival for Life: Creating a Caring Community Response to Suicide. Sponsored by Outreach Taos, the Carnival takes place this Saturday, August 19, 12-6 pm, at Kit Carson Park in Taos.
• We invite you to walk a Labyrinth created by Living Labyrinths For Peace. Experience this ancient, over 4000-year-old meditative walk that relates to people of all races, cultures, and beliefs. (Our temporary labyrinth in Kit Carson Park will be created from surveyor flags.)
• Write a wish for a suicidal victim or other deceased person, and place it as an offering in the bowl at the center.
• Listen to Sandra Wasko-Flood’s introduction to labyrinths at 12 noon.
• Enjoy the labyrinth information table with Sandra’s recent meditative book of art and poetry: “The Labyrinth Path to Peace and Light.”
Labyrinths have Physical, Psychological and Spiritual Benefits. Here’s how walking a Labyrinth can help:
• Anxiety and PTSD are alleviated by balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
• People can regain focus, de-stress, resolve conflicts, and make better decisions.
• Diseases as autism, dyslexia, Parkinson’s, and high blood pressure can be helped or alleviated.
• Walking the meandering path is a form of meditation, which centers the mind and stimulates the pineal gland, enhancing a connection to one’s higher self.
Come and walk the Labyrinth for healing and peace THIS SATURDAY, August 19, at noon in Kit Carson Park, Taos, New Mexico. Help create A Caring Response to Suicide in our community and beyond.
