Spiritual and therapeutic area for Princess Alice Hospice
A new spiritual and therapeutic labyrinth which will help with reflection and relaxation will be launched at Princess Alice Hospice.
The therapeutic labyrinth will be available to patients, visitors and hospice staff, and can be used as a way to think over a difficulty, feel more at peace or as a way to help prayer.
Wheelchair users will also be able to use the labyrinth alongside those who are able to walk along the path.
Reverend Dr Steve Nolan, chaplain at Princess Alice Hospice, said: “People say they feel calmer and more peaceful after using the labyrinth. Some even say using it has helped them come to terms with their situation.
“The labyrinth gives the hospice a new space outdoors for quiet and reflection. It complements and enhances the rest of the garden and provides a space that many will find both spiritual and therapeutic.”
The labyrinth will extend the hospice’s care to outside the building and will allow patients to spend time in a different environment.
Community groups and members of the public will be able to use the labyrinth after it launches on Thursday, September 12.
