Floor Mat- Labyrinth
Taken from the floor of Chartres Cathedral, this ancient labyrinth provided a walking meditation which was an important
spiritual practice for early Christian pilgrims. The labyrinth is an archetype found in many spiritual traditions. Unlike a maze,
the labyrinth has only one path which quiets the mind as the winding course is followed to its center. Walking the labyrinth
involves three stages: purgation-a letting go of distractions as you walk in; illumination-receiving what you came for upon
reaching the center; and union-a joining with the sacred as you complete the experience and walk out. Smaller "wall labyrinths"
have also been inscribed near the entrances of sacred spaces. The paths of these labyrinths were followed with the finger as a
mind-quieting exercise before entering the sacred space. These rugged 18" x 27" all-purpose indoor/outdoor floormats are made in USA with permanent dyes on polyester fabric bonded to a urethane backing with polypropylene trim. They're fade resistant, hide dirt well, and hose off with water. They are great for use as doormats, as kitchen or bathroom mats, or as meditation or altar mats.
