Labyrinth

The Wellness Retreat Center boasts two beautiful labyrinths to stroll through —one constructed in stone and the other in grass— designed by internationally renowned dowser, Marty Cain.

The labyrinths are based on an ancient unicursal pattern of seven concentric circles intended to realign our seven chakra energy centres, instil in us a sense of peace, and promote healing. Unlike traditional mazes that act like puzzles and force the analytical left-brain to struggle to find a way out, it is impossible to become lost or trapped in a unicursal labyrinth.

Therefore, the analytical mind is bypassed, allowing the intuitive right brain to fully engage and release a surge of creative mental energy. Some guests who have walked our labyrinths have reported mystical experiences, from spiritual insights to healing.
