Walk the Labyrinth
The labyrinth at Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. headquarters in Virginia Beach is located in front of the historic hospital building built by Edgar Cayce in 1928. It is an 11-circuit labyrinth, 40 feet in diameter with 11 circles constructed of contrasting tan and charcoal-colored pavers. Modeled after the labyrinth at the Chartres Cathedral in France, it is designed as a safe area to simply walk and think or enter into a deep meditation.
