Around and around we go

For those who enjoy a little spiritual meandering you’ll be pleased to know that there are many labyrinths in South Africa that are open to the public.  In Cape Town you will find The Oude Molen classical labyrinth, The St George’s Cathedral labyrinth and the Kalk Bay Medieval labyrinth amongst many others. In the Karoo the Barrydale 11 circuit Medieval labyrinth is a popular attraction and in the Eastern Cape the labyrinth at the Ceder Guest House in Baviaanskloof is a keen favourite amongst spirit-seekers. There are two labyrinths in Hogsback (as well as the Eco-Shrine and numerous other places to connect with yourself and with nature). In the Free State you’ll find a public labyrinth at the Laurens van der Post Memorial Centre in Philippolis and in North West Province there are a few public labyrinths including the 11 circuit labyrinth on Margaret Robert’s Herb Farm and the Good Shepherd Retreat near Hartbeespoort Dam. At the Celtis Lodge in Magaliesberg you’ll find a rather interesting option, a horse labyrinth. Certainly, all around the country there are opportunities for a bit of soul-searching under big African skies.
