Above is the walkable Labyrinth at Fintry Provincial park and campsite in Vernon B.C.
You can find this beautiful calming labyrinth nestled in the area just beside the
Okanagan Lake, just behind the historical Manor House. It is easily accessed.
This labyrinth was hand constructed by my mother Cathryne Durante in 2003 who
later passed in 2004. My father is the main caretaker of this labyrinth and always
has it looking welcoming and beautiful with all the flowers in the summer months.
My husband and I were married at this labyrinth.
Here- is a short video that explains labyrinths and how to walk one.
There are over 100 walkable labyrinths in BC and you can find them on the World Wide
Labyrinth Locator on the internet. You can also find them in a book called
Labyrinths of BC - A Guide For Your Journey by Aryana Rayne.
If you have never walked a labyrinth and you stumble across one,
take the time to walk it. An interesting sense of peace washes over you.
Children are also naturally drawn to labyrinths.
We see these interesting symmetrical patterns in many areas of nature
and we tend to get lost in these patterns, in a wonderful calming way.
It is said that walking a labyrinth is a "walk with your soul" , a place
to reflect and release and a place where we can find solitude, direction,
clarity and peace. It has also been said that walking or tracing the pattern of
the labyrinth helps to balance the hemisphere's of the brain.

- How labyrinths are now being used to help heal soldiers with PSTD.
- How to "finger walk" a labyrinth to aid with calming, focus and healing
- Labyrinths at Hospitals and Hospices.
- How labyrinths are now being brought into schools
as an alternate calming tool for children and youth.
Finger tracing a labyrinth calms and centers my busy mind.
It is a calming / healing tool over 4000 years old.

There are over 100 walk-able labyrinths in BC in fields, on beaches, near
schools, correctional facilities and also in hospitals and hospices.
They are being used in many different places
by various ages with individual needs.
Scroll down for more information on how this may be a
wonderful tool to have in your healing toolbox especially if you are
a Teacher, Doctor, Dentist, Care aid, Support Worker,
Counselor, Parent, Child, Grandparent, yoga instructor or nurse.
Anybody can use a labyrinth as a tactile tool
that assists with bringing calm and clarity.
push a marble along the pathway or blow a small
pom pom with a straw along the pathway for alternate uses.
These techniques can help regulate breath or help to improve
fine motor control. Sight is not necessary.

cedar signs and carvings.
Here are some images of children being
drawn to the finger tracing labyrinths
as well as some large walkable labyrinths.
There are many things in our environment that influence the vibrations
in our bodies and throws our natural rhythms out of sync.
Stress, Electromagnetic exposure, Unresolved emotional experiences,
modified food or lack of nutrients, pollution, our belief systems or our childhood
conditioning...there are so many things that impact or bodies and our energy fields
that surround our bodies. It is even more impactful if we are sensitive in nature.
Dis-ease and dis-harmony breeds in these environments.
It sets in, remains stagnate and negatively impacts our
physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness.
When we are aware of the mental, emotional and spiritual blocks in our natural
rhythms or vibrations then we can adjust the body to go back in tune to
it's natural healing vibrations. Reiki helps to get the body back in tune naturally
so it can heal itself and repair unhealthy thoughts and pathways that can lead to dis-ease.
The body was made to heal itself.
WHAT IS A REIKI SESSION?
Reiki is a therapy
often described as palm healing
or hands-on-body healing in which a
hands lightly on or over a patient's body to facilitate the
patient's process of healing. Reiki combines the Japanese
and Chinese word-characters of "rei" (spiritual or supernatural)
and "ki" (vital energy)
What does Reiki healing feel like? At the practitioner's hand
placements, you may feel a very slight tingling, heat, slight twitching
or energy shifting. You feel a peace and calm in your mind
or physically in general. It is different
for all clients but deep
relaxation is always felt and you will sleep better.
The word "Reiki" means "mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign."
comes from the Japanese words "rei" (universal)
and "ki" (life energy).
Reiki is a type of energy healing.
Energy healing targets the energy fields around the body.
According to practitioners, energy can stagnate in the body
where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain.
In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.
Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove
blocks in a similar way to acupuncture
Improving the flow of energy around the body,
practitioners, can enable relaxation, reduce pain,
speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.
Reiki has been around for thousands of years. Its current
form was first developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist
called Mikao Usui, who reportedly taught 2,000 people the
Reiki method during his lifetime. The practice spread to the
U.S. through Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Europe in the 1980s.
It is commonly referred to as palm healing or hands-on healing.

Lets switch gears
for a minute
and talk about
my other passion...
Most of us have been taught that "being sensitive" is a bad thing.
The truth is it can be an amazing thing if you navigate it
with knowledge and understanding.
It does not mean "crybaby" or "always overreacting",
"worry wart", "Slow to warm up" or
"always the first to leave the party
" ... it is SO much more than the label put on it.
Did you know 30-40% of the population
is said to be born with this trait and that it is who we are,
part of our DNA and here to stay. Dr. Elaine Aron has done
some incredibly interesting research on this topic.
High sensitivity can run in families. High Sensitivity affects many
people with addiction. Someone with High Sensitivity experiences
large amounts of visual stimulation coming in all at once.
They hear more sounds happening in their environment,
more so than the average person.
They are highly tuned in to all of the emotions
and expressions of others as well as always being fully aware
of every single detail around them. This is the reason why Highly
Sensitive people / children / infants tend to "flood" their
emotions easier than others. We overwhelm quickly and
ALL of our emotions ARE BIG. Intrigued??
Book a session with me to learn more about High Sensitivity in your infant,
child, teen or the other adults around you.
