Book Description
For thousands of years, archetypal labyrinth patterns have been used as a powerful tool for resolving problems, access to inner peace, and spiritual alignment. A simple, yet highly effective practice, walking or tracing a labyrinth quiets the mind and takes you to a place where you can hear your own wisdom with clarity and calmness.

Author Lauren Artress, founder of Veriditas, the Worldwide Labyrinth Project and a renowned expert on the subject, offers a lovely labyrinth kit, to be used anywhere, anytime—on tabletops, desktops, beds or laps. Included in The Sand Labyrinth are a 10" square sandbox and a double-sided labyrinth (flip over to change the pattern and create a different meditative effect), which is covered by a layer of fine white sand for finger tracing. The accompanying book contains five sections devoted to using the labyrinth for healing, creativity, discovering your soul assignment, awakening self-knowledge, and honoring your experience. You’ll also find words of wisdom from sages of all traditions and ages, plus testimonials from ordinary people who have found extraordinary results from the soothing, mesmerizing power of the labyrinth—to help deepen your meditation experience.

5 out of 5 stars Great Tool, May 14, 2001
Reviewer:   Lynn Knox (Simpsonville, SC USA) - See all my reviews
I received this as a Mother's Day gift and I love it. I walk an outdoor and indoor eleven circuit labyrinth and I also have a wooden lap labyrinth. I love them all, but I found this to be a new experience. The texture of the sand and the sound it makes as you trace the path add a new dimension to the labyrinth experience. I found I kept tracing and tracing and tracing.

5 out of 5 stars The Sand Labyrinth: an Effective Meditation Tool, February 20, 2001
Reviewer:   Dr. John W. Rhodes (Lilburn, GA USA) - See all my reviews
The Sand Labyrinth is fun! It is also an effective tool for spiritual development and meditation. Finally, Dr. Lauren Artress, THE authority on labyrinths, has provided an inexpensive, effective finger labyrinth for general use. Although everyone does not have a walking labyrinth readily accessible, the finger labyrinth is definitely a viable alternative whose use is not dependent on location or weather. Of particular note is that you really get two labyrinths for the price of one: a seven-circuit Cretan Labyrinth and an eleven-circuit Chartres Labyrinth, each of which provides a slightly different meditation experience. The fine sand provides an interesting tactile experience and a little "resistance" for the finger as one traces the labyrinth. The accompanying book by Dr. Artress is well written and very accessible to a labyrinth novice, while the several sections of quotes provide food for contemplation for more advanced users.

For me, it was helpful that I had previously read other labyrinth material by Dr. Artress and had walked labyrinths on several occasions before using the finger labyrinth. On a slightly negative note, the width of the paths on the eleven-circuit Chartres labyrinth is too narrow for an adult male with "average" sized fingers to trace with ease. A larger size - even 12" x 12" would have been more helpful. However, this is only a slight detraction to an excellent addition to the growing number of labyrinth-related items.
