12.23.19 … “Advent leads to a growing inner stillness and joy allowing me to realize that he for whom I am awaiting has already arrived and speaks to me is the silence of my heart.”

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2019 Labyrinth Walks, 2019 Advent Walks, FourthWeek Week of Advent – Love, YMCA of the Rockies Dorsey Museum Labyrinth – Estes Park CO, Saint Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church-Estes Park CO:

So the YMCA of the Rockies facility in Estes Park is about 3 miles from where we are staying. I saw they had a labyrinth and this is where good friends’ daughter Sarah works. So I headed out this morning.

Once inside the YMCA of the Rockies, it took me a while to find the labyrinth. It actually was covered in snow so it was not really walkable. I was assuming the GatheRing was the labyrinth. And so as I was about to return to my car, I thought to myself: It was worth the effort to come in and see where Sarah works…

But then I looked to my left and there it was … clearly a rock labyrinth. Sometimes you just have to look up. As I entered I noticed a Peace Pole …

My second walk was at the Parish Church of Saint Bartholomew the Apostle, an Episcopal Church. It was on the other side of Estes Park and I caught a view of the Stanley Hotel.

I smiled as I pulled up: red doors, rooftop bell, large cross … and a spectacular setting.

The labyrinth was tucked in the back, surrounded by rocky crags, sacred space, a playground and a peaceful garden.

The labyrinth was covered in snow except for one quadrant. So I just thought labyrinthy thoughts.

And then my crew split up. I went up into Rocky Mountain National Park for a nice car ride.

Be still …
