How to Pray using the St. Bridget Labyrinth

There is no wrong way to walk the labyrinth.  In fact, walking is not even required.  Walk, sit, watch, skip, dance, pray or simply be in the presence of what is divine.
One process involves 3 phases:
The Journey in
Being in the Center
The Journey out.
The Journey In
· Shed your distractions, release your thoughts.
· At the entrance, breathe deeply and offer a silent prayer. Focus in this time on a question, situation, or a feeling, you may be holding in your mind and heart. 
· Invite God to walk with you. 
· Ask God what word or direction He may have for you today. 
· Enter. Walk.  Go at whatever pace feels natural, keeping in mind how we are encouraged to rush—think seriously about slowing down.
The Center
· The center is a place to pause and dwell with God
· Rest in the divine presence. 
· Pray for your own needs
· Pray for others
· Seek guidance on how to integrate a new insight into your life.
Journey Out
· Turn and follow the same path out.
· Again, walk at your own pace.
· Allow the walk out to prepare you for re-entry and to
· integrate what you have learned or received.
· When you reach the threshold, pause and give thanks.
