Labyrinth wins Council funding in SA Mid North as a space for people affected by suicide

Hi to labyrinth lovers

I was very pleased to put in a successful grant for our Mid North Suicide Prevention Network for a labyrinth at Jamestown for those who have been affected by suicide

It was pleasing to have the Northern Areas Council support the construction of a labyrinth in Jamestown as a place where people who have been affected by suicide in our region can walk, and spend some quiet time in contemplation.

It is intended to hold a meeting with anyone who has been affected and wishes to have input into making art pieces that capture their loved ones, the challenges faced in rural communities, as well as a place where there experience has been meaningfully acknowledged by community members.

The initial meeting will be held in March next year, where the aspects of making a special place, and in the form of a labyrinth, shall be shared.

Hospitals and other community centres around the world are embracing labyrinths as part of a healing journey, whether it be for mental health, cancer recovery, or for the pleasure of walking a labyrinth.

The photo gives some idea of the basic shape of the labyrinth which will be constructed on a site suitable to the public and Council.
