St. Mark’s Labyrinth Walk

Greet the new year with a quiet stroll

If you’d prefer a contemplative New Year’s Eve to a debauched one, St. Mark’s Cathedral will again this year provide a labyrinth for you to silently stroll through—a canvas 42 feet in diameter spread out on the cathedral floor, printed with a spiraling circular path modeled on the one built into the floor of Chartres Cathedral. Candlelight, live meditative music, and a burning bowl for prayers will provide a soothing environment. The experience of treading a shared path while wrapped in private thoughts is unexpectedly calming and powerful.

Mon., Dec. 31, 6 p.m.-midnight, 2007
