Local Labyrinths Provide Opportunities for Peace and Tranquility

On Saturday, May 7, at 7:00 p.m., West Hartford’s Copper Beech Institute will host a Candlelight Labyrinth Walk in recognition of World Labyrinth Day. The evening will include the walk itself, a directed meditation session, and a discussion led by Executive Director Dr. Brandon Nappi. The Institute, a retreat center for contemplative practice – including yoga and meditation – hosts lecturers and practitioners who “share wisdom and practices to heal, transform, and empower us to live fearlessly with joy and resilience.” With a 48-acre campus, guests benefit from indoor and outdoor activities in their endeavors toward creating deeper awareness.

Following the same effort to provide peace and tranquility to our residents, clients, and guests, The Mercy Community is in the midst of creating a Labyrinth of our own, serving as a perpetual memorial to the Sister of Mercy: the women who have served individuals on our campus since 1880 and throughout the world since 1827. The Labyrinth supports our Mission to be a transforming and healing presence and to inspire hope and confidence on life’s journey.

A gift to The Labyrinth at The Mercy Community begets gifts of healing and hope. We seek your support in this project through a tax-deductible gift at any level. Please contact Sister Maureen Reardon, Ph.D., in our Office of Development at 860.570.8339 or mreardon@mchct.org to learn more about the project. On behalf of the Sisters of Mercy and of our residents, clients, and visitors who will find serenity and meaning in the experience of the Labyrinth, we thank you for your generosity.
