Discovering the Many Benefits of Walking the Labyrinth

Discovering the Many Benefits of Walking the Labyrinth The Tanner Health System School of Nursing at the University of West Georgia held a labyrinth walk for UWG staff, faculty and students on April 11 and for the community on April 12. The outdoor labyrinth, located at the Nursing Building, is made of multi-colored pavers and is an ancient tool used to create an overall sense of well-being and balance.

The event allowed participants to walk the beautiful labyrinth, ask questions and experience first-hand the benefits that the exercise provides. There was also a workshop for making a small, personal, cloth finger labyrinth to take home.

Nickie Lynn, certified labyrinth designer, facilitator and spiritual director from Seattle, worked with UWG Associate Professor Bonnie Bar to inform and educate the college staff, faculty and students about potential uses and benefits of the labyrinth in the health and wellness industry. The desire of the faculty is to see the labyrinth used more by the Carrollton community and all are welcomed to come explore the beautiful new addition to the Tanner Health System School of Nursing.
