Life Dancer Anne Hornstein will be presenting "The Labyrinth of Life." Hornstein’s presentation will be interactive and include walking a labyrinth, the history and background of labyrinths, and benefits of using a labyrinth as a meditative practice. The free meeting will start with a 30-minute meditation at 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King Episcopal Church parish hall, 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, a half mile north of Hwy. 98. The ECMS is ecumenical and does not follow any religion. “Labyrinths are a walking meditation, a transformative journey of life, a mystical path to embody spiritual wholeness and nourish the soul,” says Hornstein. “They are an inner journey for self-discovery that enhances whole brain activity, a path to the center of the soul, and a metaphor for the path of life.” The labyrinth is a curving walking path with numerous 180-degree turns that allow one to center and quiet his or her mind, relax the whole body-mind system and enhance clarity and focus, Hornstein explains. Scientific data shows that walking a labyrinth can balance the left and right hemispheres of the brain and induce receptive states of consciousness. Traditional labyrinths have only one path leading to the center and back out again. Hornstein has lived on the Emerald Coast for over 20 years. She visited here for a couple of days (got sand in her shoes), which turned into a couple of weeks, which turned into a couple of years and now, two decades later, she's still “living here, loving life,” she says. She is a licensed Brain Gym consultant and Matrix Energetics certified practitioner, and guides adventures that empower individuals and groups of all ages--including corporate teams, athletes, artists, families and educators--to access and integrate their own creative wisdom. The evening will conclude with a short guided meditation. Anyone who needs meditation instruction should arrive by 6:15 p.m. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
