Labyrinths at The Pavana

Three Labyrinths at The Pavana Chiang Mai Resort in Thailand

 

‘Labyrinths offer the opportunity to walk in meditation to that place within us where the rational merges with the intuitive and the spiritual is reborn.’

 

On the Pavana Chiang Mai Resort (and The Spa Resort Residences) complex you can find three labyrinths. Two of these offer you the possibiltiy to walk. The Cretan / Classical Labyrinth at Sala Mala (The top sala, an open covered space in nature to rest, on the hill of the resort) and the Chartres / Medieval Labyrinth in the large hotel garden between the main pool and the townhouses. 

Not to walk but only as a decor, a small Clasical private garden labyrinth in the front yard of townhouse 'Villa Asia' (townhouse 864) offering a fantastic and welcoming energy.

 

Every Wednesday evening In Sala Mala guests have the chance (by reservation) to get an explanation of the Classical Labyrinth as a mirroring life path and to walk it. Surrounded by oil lamps and with special background music for the meditative walk of the Labyrinth, week after week lots of times amazing life reflections take place.

 

Find here some general history information about labyrinths and how to walk.

 

The Pavana Chiang Mai Resort classical (Cretan) Labyrinth in Thailand

Labyrinths offer the opportunity to walk in meditation to that place within us where the rational merges with the intuitive and the spiritual is reborn.


"Your life is a sacred journey. And it is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path... exactly where you are meant to be right now... And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love."

Labyrinth prayer

 

Just and only a free offer. Some thoughts if you are a believer and want to prepare yourself for walking a labyrinth.

 

Trappist monk Thomas Merton writes about some practices of the spiritual life in this classic volume. Here is a prayer in which he embraces uncertainty through the practice of trust, an essential element of faith.

 

Thoughts in Solitude

(by Thomas Merton)

 

My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. 
I do not see the road ahead of me. 
I cannot know for certain where it will end. 
Nor do I really know myself, 
and the fact that I think I am following your will 
does not mean that I am actually doing so. 
But I believe that the desire to please you 
does, in fact, please you. 
And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. 
I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. 
And I know that if I do this 
you will lead me by the right road, 
though I may know nothing about it. 
Therefore, I will trust you always though 
I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. 
I will not fear, for you are ever with me, 
and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.
