The Chalice Labyrinth
Please note the sacred geometric connotations in the bottom portion of the design:
- the 3 left circuits (representing heaven) meeting
- the 4 right circuits (representing earth) at
- the entrance chalice (representing the Christ consciousness)
Another interesting facet of the Chalice Labyrinth is that the walker completes the three outer circuits of all four quadrants before walking the three inner circuits. Metaphysically, the seventh chakra in the Chalice Labyrinth is the labyrinth's center.
The Chalice Labyrinth could be a viable option for those who want the simplicity of the classical design but also the beauty and directional switches (labyrs) of the Chartres labyrinth design.
