Spiritual Practices: Labyrinths

resources to support contemplative beginners and adepts, including individuals, families, small groups and congregational practices


Labyrinth StickersIllustrated Ministry's Labyrinth Stickers feature a labyrinth on a dark blue celestial background. Around the circle are instructions for using the labyrinth: Trace inward, release distractions. Pause in the center, receive peace. Trace outward, return renewed.

There are many ways to use these stickers:

  • Share them with your congregation and encourage them to use the labyrinth each day during Lent as a spiritual practice.
  • Give them to youth and college students on a retreat.
  • Give them to new visitors of your church as a gift.
