Humans have always seen in the labyrinth a symbol of life's deepest meanings. This book of images, quotes, stories, and folklore reveals the ancient meanings of the labyrinth, meanings that are still relevant today. At the center of the labyrinth, we may encounter a monster—or the Divine. Ultimately, the center is the Self, the true identity to which each of us is called. Then, once we reach the inner center, we must find our way out and back to the outer world, forever transformed. This inward and outward expedition with its threefold steps of release, renew, return will be repeated over and over in our lives. And each time, we will come closer to the wholeness for which we were created.
