Lauren Artress, Walking a Sacred Path

Lauren Artress, Walking a Sacred Path (revised and updated).  2006. (194 pages)

In reading about labyrinths, we should start with Lauren Artress, who is the driving force responsible for the modern revival of walking labyrinths both in churches and beyond churches.

Lauren is trained and licensed as a psychotherapist as well as an Episcopal priest and spiritual director.  At the time she began her labyrinth work she was serving as a canon at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. Her background serves all of us well as she incorporates into the book just enough of her personal story with the labyrinth with just enough history about the labyrinth and much wisdom regarding our own spiritual journeys, for those willing to take that first step.
