The Labyrinth Learning Community

The labyrinth is a fitting metaphor for sustainability and learning processes. The labyrinth supports experiential, holistic, and contemplative learning across disciplines, promotes mindfulness and wellness, enhance the physical and aesthetic environment of the campus and facilitate university, school, and community collaboration, and fosters creative engagement with people and place. Through the Labyrinth Learning Community, participants can walk the labyrinth to explore the impact of contemplative practice on their teaching, research and action. We will share the successes of this initiative along with the associated pedagogy and practices and work with the LSLLN hubs to explore opportunities for new labyrinths in other locations.
