Walk the Labyrinth in High Park

Tuesday, August 8, with Monica Voss 
10:30am-12:30pm, no charge

Walking a labyrinth increases focus and concentration. As we walk in contemplation, we pay more attention to our breathing and our thoughts and sometimes the less helpful thoughts decrease and by the end, the mind feels refreshed.

We’ll meet outside the High Park Subway Station (toward High Park Av.) at 10:30am and walk to the Labyrinth together. If you are travelling by car enter the park from Bloor Street West (not the Queensway) and follow the road to the Grenadier Restaurant parking lot. We will meet you just outside the entrance to the Restaurant at 10:45am.
