Chartres Labyrinth Tours offers a unique journey to Chartres Cathedral and its labyrinth. Tour topics include the world famous stained glass and sculpture, sacred geometry, The Divine Feminine, Black Virgins, the summer solstice and the history and symbolism of the labyrinth and much more.
Pilgrims have been walking this winding path for over 800 years. Built around 1200 AD, the Chartres labyrinth is called "The Road to Jerusalem," denoting both the Holy Land on Earth, and the Celestial City in Heaven. Walking the labyrinth is considered both a physical and spiritual journey, a truly unique path of meditation. Join us and see for yourself.
Labyrinth Update: The labyrinth will be reopened and available for walking Friday, July 15. It will be uncovered every Friday after that until the end of October. There might be one exception, Friday, September 23, because there might be a concert in the cathedral and therefore the labyrinth woulld not be uncovered. Church officials are awaiting word about the concert, so not sure yet. Always remember that Friday is the only day the labyrinth is uncovered, no exceptions.
My tours will resume in September, 2016. I am away for July and August.
