Hoping to Turn Again: A Labyrinth Walk for Prayer and Meditation

Labyrinth poster

Take a break from studying and spend time in prayer and meditation while walking an indoor labyrinth! This simple Lenten installation in the Atrium Gallery of the Theology and Ministry Library on the Brighton Campus continues the library's commitment to providing space for reflection and contemplation during the penitential seasons of Lent and Advent. We hope it will provide a space for you to "turn again," as poet T.S. Eliot writes in his poem "Ash Wednesday." The labyrinth is on loan from Emmanuel Church of Boston from Tuesday, February 19 through Easter Monday and is available during the TML's regular hours. Written materials are provided to guide those who wish to walk the labyrinth on their own. Additionally, we will offer guided meditations and poetry walks on the labyrinth for the community during the Lenten season as follows:

Thursday, February 21:     Poetry Walk                     4:00PM
Tuesday, February 26:      Guided Meditation Walk     4:00 PM
Tuesday, March 12:          Poetry Walk                     4:00 PM
Tuesday, March 19:          Guided Meditation Walk     4:00 PM

The labyrinth installation is co-sponsored by the Boston College Theology & Ministry Library, the Episcopal Chaplaincy of Boston College, and Emmanuel Church.
