Full Moon Labyrinth Walk

Ten of us gathered on a frigid night, 9º F, with a wind chill many degrees below zero.

Clouds were racing across the sky, hiding and then revealing the big, silver moon.

Full Moon Snow Labyrinth

We were bundled up, thus able to take the time we needed for this snow labyrinth experience. Candles in lanterns made of ice  cast a warm glow across the snow, as we followed the winding path.

At the center, we each paused to look at the moon and reflect on the journey.

At the Center of the Labyrinth

Right after we left the labyrinth, a coyote howled in the woods nearby.

That set us to howling, too!

    • And many thanks to you, our labyrinth builder extraordinaire! When I checked just now the thermometer read 4 degrees F. Yet last night in the labyrinth I barely felt the cold. A beautiful, wild Wolf Moon!

  7. Wow! I would love to do something like this. I celebrated the solstice last month outside, and it was transformative. Engaging with nature in winter, especially with the night, is invigorating yet lacking unfortunately for many of us. Thanks for sharing your experience!
