Walk, meditate, relax and dream at the Collingwood or Thornbury Labyrinth.  A Labyrinth is a single path or unicursal tool that is used to enhance brain activity by promoting personal, psychological and spiritual transformation. A Labyrinth is a clearly defined pathway that finds the centre and returns to the beginning, but is very different from a maze. Unlike a Labyrinth which is set up for relaxation and meditation, a maze is full of dead ends and can lead you to become disoriented.  If you need a break from society or even just an escape from your daily routine, take time to let your mind wander and appreciate the peace and quiet the Labyrinth has to offer.
