join the Mystic Valley Voices at The Labyrinth at Kairos

World Labyrinth Day is celebrated the first Saturday in May every year.

World Labyrinth Day is celebrated the first Saturday in May every year.

At 1 p.m. in each time zone around the world, people will walk a labyrinth to create a wave of peaceful energy moving around the planet.

This Saturday, join the Mystic Valley Voices at The Labyrinth at Kairos, 1955 Richardson Ave. in Comox and join in this fifth annual world event. At 12:30 p.m. this popular chanting choir will lead participants in chants, and then at 1 will lead the walkers into the labyrinth.

In the past, a variety of events were held at over 100 locations worldwide, including the Ellipse in Washington, D.C., churches, churches, public parks, a maximum-security women’s prison, and many private labyrinths.

Countries joining the celebration included: the United States, Canada, England, the Bahamas, France, Spain, New Zealand, China, South Africa, and Australia.

While the origin of the labyrinth is unknown, labyrinths have been found all over the world dating from earliest antiquity. Once popular in the Middle Ages, labyrinths have been experiencing a resurgence in popularity. The World Wide Labyrinth Locator,, an online database, lists over 3,400 labyrinths around the world.

World Labyrinth Day is a project of The Labyrinth Society, a non-profit organization founded in 1998 by a small group of dedicated labyrinth enthusiasts. Linda Magnuson, Keeper of The Labyrinth at Kairos, is a member of The Labyrinth Society.

For information on the World Labyrinth Day celebration at The Labyrinth at Kairos, call Linda Magnuson at 250-339-6573.
