The Labyrinth - A resource for use at school

The Labyrinth is an ancient symbol, linked around the world with stories of journeys, encounters and transformation. It also represents a journey towards a spiritual centre, enabling us to become aware of ourselves, our neighbours and the world, and our relationships with each of them.
