Prairie View Labyrinth

The labyrinth is an ancient tool for meditation or prayer consisting of a winding path that begins at the periphery and leads to a central place, then out again by the same path. Unlike a maze, there are no blind alleys or dead ends. As a therapeutic tool, the labyrinth provides willing participants with a multi-sensory experience in which to reflect on problems, questions or issues from various perspectives. Mental and physical benefits include relaxation, quieting of the mind and relief from stress and anxiety.

The labyrinth is located on the northwest corner of Prairie View’s Newton campus. Parking is available in Lot C. To schedule a time to walk the labyrinth, please call 316-284-6443 or 316-284-6365.
