The labyrinth was laboriously made by residents and members to honor the history and energy which once stood on this sacred site.  The labyrinth has been charged energetically with positive energy full of love and light. It was officially dedicated on Saturday, June 19, 2010 with residents, mediums and members in attendance.  Butterflies were released to commemorate the occasion.

Labyrinths can be thought of as symbolic forms of pilgrimage; people can walk the path, ascending toward salvation or enlightenment. Many people could not afford to travel to holy sites and lands, so labyrinths and prayer substituted for such travel. Later, the religious significance of labyrinths faded, and they served primarily for entertainment, though recently their spiritual aspect has seen resurgence.

Many newly made labyrinths exist today, in churches and parks. Labyrinths are used by modern mystics to help achieve a contemplative state. Walking among the turnings, one loses track of direction and of the outside world, and thus quiets the mind. [Taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labyrinth, retrieved on January 30, 2011.]

The Camp Chesterfield Labyrinth:

A Personal Journey toward Self-Reflection and Contemplation

In 2009, through the generous and kind donation of an IAOS benefactor, Camp Chesterfield created a replica of the Chartres Labyrinth found in the Chartres Cathedral in Chartres, France.  The labyrinth at Camp Chesterfield is located on the former site of the “Ladies Bazaar” which stood from the early days of Camp Chesterfield’s formation, but was razed after a fire and many years of harsh weather conditions had taken its toll on this historic building.  What better way, though, to honor such an important structure than to create a labyrinth on the very spot in which it stood for so many years?
