Centered in God, assured by Faith, and prospered by Divine Love,
we open our hearts and minds to receive the abundance of Pure Spirit.
Thank you God for our Permanent Outdoor Labyrinth!
Why a Permanent, Outdoor Labyrinth at Unity of Fairfax?
Across time and across cultures, human beings have found great spiritual value in walking a labyrinth. It is a spiritual practice that seems to be embedded in the consciousness of humanity. There is a holy calling to take a symbolic walk to one's center and receive the gifts given there.
For many years, on New Year's Day for example, a canvas labyrinth has been laid out in our Sanctuary. Members and friends of Unity of Fairfax have found great inspiration, solace, and clarity when walking the canvas labyrinth.
The new permanent, outdoor labyrinth will be open 24 hours a day. We will welcome everyone, from Northern Virginia neighbors and the world, regardless of faith tradition, to engage in this deep archetypal practice and to experience the sacred power of walking a labyrinth.
The new labyrinth will also serve as a beautiful and inspirational reminder that although each person's journey through life is private, ultimately we walk together in a spirit of oneness.

At the beginning of summer, the 52-foot labyrinth plaza area was leveled with a slight slope away from the building.
We will receive bids for construction this fall and construction is expected to begin during the winter months.
While construction plans continue, an interim circular garden was created in the plaza area by Earthcare volunteers on July 26th. The garden was designed by Rick Hartley, one of our Earthcare founders.

During 2017 we have been blessed to receive construction contributions of $20,000 from anonymous donors as well as two $5,000 in challenge grants!
A wonderful start, thank you God!
We rely on continuing donations to pay for the total cost of labyrinth construction.
