Life’s Maze at Greys Court
Fri 27 May, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm BSTFree
An Evening Walk through the Archbishop’s Maze at Greys Court on the 27 May 2016 at 7pm
An Archbishop’s maze is actually both a turf maze and a labyrinth. You are invited to unravel the spiritual magic of the maze as you walk through the experience of the maze. The Archbishop’s Maze works both as a maze and a labyrinth, inviting choices and a sense of journey in the experience, enabling spiritual connection through Christian spiritual symbolism.
We are activating the spiritual energies of the Archbishop’s Maze with the Holy Trinity and the ‘script’ written on the central plinth, calling the energies of North, South, East and West in to the activation, aligning our internal compass to take our life path in the direction of light and love. The labyrinth was commissioned by Lady Elizabeth Brenner of Greys Court, in 1981, the maze was then created by Adrian Fisher and Randoll Coate. The Archbishop’s Maze was inspired by Archbishop Runcie’s enthronement speech: He urged that people help each other unravel the maze of life…
About the Maze, from The National Trust Book– The junctions of choices have crosses in their form so as to resemble the cruciform junction. Although the maze is only 85 feet across the total length of the path is exactly one quarter of a mile. The seven rings of paths represent the seven days of Creation: The diameter of the centre is 9 times the span of each part and represents the 9th hour of agony. The overall design represents the crown of thorns. The path is representing our pilgrimage in time and eternity, there is a sun dial in the centre, a reminder of where we are in our present moment. The path towards salvation is constant, a task never to be reached. Just as we reach the centre the path turns, an experience of mortal death, this represents the three days Christ spent in the tomb. We then move clockwise in to resurrection and beyond in to life beyond death, the beginning of eternal life, there is the time of judgment and finally salvation when all is reconciled. The central plinth in the centre holds the energies, north, south, east and west, calling a message to the heart in stillness, light and life. Each message has a direct relevance to the experience of walking the archbishop’s maze and unraveling life’s maze.
Please meet at the visitors hut, this is a free event.
