The labyrinth helped participants of the pastoral training on the spiritual journey in Kampot, Cambodia to explore their lives, faith, and relationships with God. Step one involved scoping out the space (smaller than planned, with two permanent “pillars”), deciding on a pattern (inner 5 circuits of the Chartres labyrinth with one modification), building and contextualizing it, (large center for a group of 40, adding a cross since this was a central symbol for the group).
Step two: welcoming those who wanted to try it out (children) or simply take a look (participants during a break).

Thanks to Richard for his help with construction, the organizing committee for their support of including labyrinth programming, and all the children of participants whose exuberance warmed my heart and the labyrinth.
