Best Downtown Place To Feel the Spirit

The Labyrinth Walk

St. David's offers a labyrinth to walk in the heart of Downtown, a perfect getaway meditation garden that's shielded from onlookers by tall walls. A labyrinth is a kind of symmetrical maze, and this one takes about 20 minutes to walk at a casual pace, but those 20 minutes represent the search for peace that endures through the ages. This one is a faithful replica of the ancient floor of the Chartres Cathedral near Paris. It's a spiritual map to the center of ourselves, and many a lost soul would do well to stop in.
