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.
Rev. Russell Heiland
Our labyrinth will be the face of a larger plaza that will provide space for a variety of other activities - weddings, services, seasonal celebrations and special events - our Unity of Fairfax Labyrinth Plaza!
At the beginning of summer, the 52-foot labyrinth plaza area was leveled with a slight slope away from the building.
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.
You may have noticed the “Visualize Our Labyrinth Here” sign at the main entrance to the building. Thank you, John Kell, for this inspiring contribution.

We have reached our fundraising goal for the Unity Labyrinth Plaza. We are no longer accepting donations. Thanks to all who donated.

Thank you for your prayers and visualization energy.
Every Sunday at 10:30am and 12:30pm, we gather in a prayer circle around the space that will soon become our labyrinth.
