Winter Solstice Candle Labyrinth


The Winter Solstice Candle Labyrinth is a tradition we have maintained at the UUCC since 2004. The labyrinth is a meditation space. A place and a method for mediation and connection with the “divine.”


A “labyrinth” looks like a maze but it is not. Unlike a maze which is meant to trick and confuse, the labyrinth only has one path through. One way in. One way out.

Labyrinths have a long tradition in many cultures. There is a lot of information out there about them here is a good resource.

At the UUCC we have our Winter Solstice Candle Labyrinth within a few days of the solstice. This helps maintain our connection to the earth and sun. Physical phenomena that are at the center of our existence. Their mysterious interaction is the hidden root of modern religion. There is little doubt that Christmas and Easter borrow heavily from ancient religions which used the annual cycle of the seasons, symbolically, as well as practically.

The UUCC’s Winter Solstice Candle Labyrinth is an homage to these common roots of many religious traditions, and ALL peoples.

This is a video walk through of the Labyrinth on 12/22/2011.


Thanks to Karin, Barb, Kandye, Janet, Dorea, Adriane and Kurt.
