Beginning on Miramar Beach, Florida, in May 2012 and ending in Maui, Hawaii, in July 2014, Twylla Alexander traveled the United States to walk labyrinths and visit the women who created them.
Labyrinth Journeys: 50 States, 51 Stories crisscrosses the country, from a prairie labyrinth in North Dakota to an urban labyrinth in Baltimore, on to a labyrinth in the rainforest of southeast Alaska and a flower garden in Wisconsin. All along the way, women’s stories speak to the labyrinth’s power to calm and to inspire, to strengthen and to clarify – to be whatever the walker needs in her life.
Twylla’s own journey weaves through the other fifty as she seeks her own meaning on the labyrinth’s path. Join them on their journeys, as you explore your own.
"Twylla Alexander’s Labyrinth Journeys: 50 States, 51 Stories captures the essence of “The Labyrinth Movement”, named so by The New York Times. Each woman Alexander interviews is deeply moved by the labyrinth, creates one for herself and tells a unique story of how it changed her life. If you are hungry for inspiration, or are looking for an easy-to-do practice that opens your heart and mind, this book is a great place to start. "
