Welcome to the Levi E. Coe Library’s Heartstone Labyrinth. The official unveiling of The Heartstone Labyrinth took place Saturday, August 28th, 2021 from 10 AM to Noon.
A campaign aimed to collect funds for the care and keeping of the labyrinth took place with a personalized engraved brick fundraiser. The bricks with messages of love and acknowledgement were laid as a permanent walkway from the parking lot to the entrance of the Heartstone Labyrinth in July of 2022.
A labyrinth is used for walking meditation. It is a single winding path from the outer edge in a circuitous way to the center. Labyrinths are used world-wide as a way to quiet the mind, calm anxieties, recover balance in life, enhance creativity and encourage meditation, insight, self-reflection and stress reduction.
