Nature’s Sacred Space is our greatest teacher of SELF.

Sacred Spaces are necessary for the wellbeing of the body, the mind, the emotions, and to be healed by our spiritual nature. As a plant is moved in a garden to find the spot where it can best realize itself, a sacred space offers the best place to learn how to become who you were meant to be. Your inner sacred space teaches who you are—your purpose, strengths, gifts, and special talents.

Mother Earth is our greatest teacher. A walk in the woods, along the beach, or walking through a meadow filled with butterflies opens a path to the wisdom of the earth and that of your soul. Sacred spaces allow a quiet, stillness; where silent questions can be asked; answers can be heard; and emotions can be calmed.

These are spaces where the mind can focus on the spiritual aspects of the natural world and your spiritual self. Personalized sacred spaces can be created in individual homes and gardens. They offer a safe haven for rest, to attune to the natural elements, hear the birds singing or the soft music of a water fountain. They are designed to be comfortable spaces where we can experience beauty while writing or meditating, and to journey Within.



Medicine Wheel gardens, though beautiful are more than just a shape. It is important to use the principles underneath the physical design in order to gain the spiritual and energetic benefits. One of the most important principles is the alignment. Getting the alignment correct is kind of like a key to open the door to the natural energies of the earth. The analogy to just using the shape might be having a car without a key to really drive it.

Gardens that incorporate the underlying principles and techniques of the medicine wheel are healing, nurturing and supportive to bringing peace into your relationships. The spiritual and energetic benefits of this ancient structure, which dates back thousands of years, symbolizes harmony.  Learn more by taking our class!

Angel Air promotes spiritual experiences and shares information that helps raise human consciousness and evolution. Anita Mayberry, its founder is a visionary, a gifted intuitive healer, who speaks Light language and implements galactic body activations. This February when, Angel Air flew into Florida to interview Melinda Joy for a series of video’s, this extraordinary image was captured on film at a labyrinth designed by her.

MjoyLabyrinth2Melinda Joy’s labyrinth designs are unique because she anchors specific Earth and Light energies into the labyrinth, makes an alignment with directions, and builds harmony with the surrounding environment. Each labyrinth is personalized to reflect the client’s personality, individual needs, and the intent of the labyrinth. The intent for this one was Transformation. It was a profound blessing when Anita’s camera captured this beautiful image that absolutely transformed both of us.

Walking a labyrinth is a journey in Peace, Love, Joy, and Harmony. It’s wonderful to be able to share this image to remind us that we really are continually surrounded by Light Beings. Thank you to Angel Air for making a difference on the planet.

IMG_0264 The Classical Seven-Circuit Labyrinth is known to be a form of harmony and an easy walk through it gives a calming, relaxing feel. Not known as well are the results of a 2008 research program that analyzed the effects of a daily labyrinth experience on children that exhibited ADHD symptoms. Each day the children moved their finger through a hand-sized labyrinth.

For the research, children were chosen because they were hyperactive, easily distracted, had poor concentration skills, and had difficulty engaging in quiet activities both alone and with other children. There was a persistent problem interfering in the child’s life at home and at school.

After 4 weeks of ‘finger walking’ a labyrinth every day there was significant reduction in ADHD-type behavior. The results suggested that, over time, the labyrinth experience could cause a positive improvement in the children’s ADHD behavior.

The Shambhalla Institute offers an interesting Labyrinth Class to learn how to install a personal Classical Seven-Circuit Labyrinth. Here are some comments from participants. Please share your labyrinth experience with others with a comment below or on the Shambhalla Institute and Shamanic Gardening Facebook pages.

Annie Retamel, a Shamanic Gardener in Pasadena, California:   “Thank  you again for doing the Labyrinth class at my house, it was such a spiritual gift and it keeps on giving and giving.  For a woman who recently lost her husband, our labyrinth has become a huge healing space for her.”

Millie Fink, Medical Trainer, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:    “Walking a labyrinth revealed to me a long-forgotten spiritual aspect of my true being.”

Lynn Thiel, Travel Agent, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:    “The labyrinth centers me, taking me into a oneness with nature. My personal labyrinth brought sacredness to my land.”
