Walking the Labyrinth is best done in silence. If others are encountered, quietly step aside for a moment and then return to the path. Children are always welcome and encouraged to walk the path. Guests walking the Labyrinth are asked to please refrain from using any electronic devices.
The Desert Rose Labyrinth is located in the beautiful desert community of Kayenta, Ivins, Utah, and is available for community and private events. For more information, please click the EMAIL DESERT ROSE LABYRINTH link below.
The Desert Rose Labyrinth is defined by more than 1800 indigenous rocks and is patterned after the classic eleven-circuit path of the famous 12th century Chartres Cathedral Labyrinth in France.
Labyrinths have been in use for over 4000 years. Their basic design is fundamental to nature, and they are found in many cultural and religious traditions. The path of the Labyrinth is often a metaphor for the path of life. Although the center may be visible, the path is often filled with unexpected turns. Use of the Labyrinth may provide one with the strength to continue along the path one has chosen, or the courage to choose a different path.
“A Labyrinth is a place where you don’t get lost, rather it is where you find yourself.”
Local artists donated all sculptures in the Desert Rose Labyrinth, and Kayenta Arts Foundation is forever grateful to these talented individuals for their kind and generous support:
