7-Circuit Labyrinth


cancersurvivorlabyrinthwalkThe universal or classical labyrinth is simpler than the one at Chartres; typically, it has only seven circuits, or paths. In many cultures, it is also used as a walking meditation.

Variations of the 7-circuit labyrinth has been found in Italy, India, Greece, Scandinavia and the native American tradition.

How this exact same pattern found its way throughout the world is a bit of a mystery.
