Finger labyrinths are a tool for mindfulness and relaxation. By moving a finger slowly along the path, the "walker" can calm and center oneself. The principle is very simple, but powerful.

Features of this finger labyrinth:

  • follows a pattern of 7-circuit Chartres-style meditation labyrinth
  • small, portable size: it measures 4 3/4 inches in diameter and is approximately 3/4 inch thick
  • made of walnut wood and comes with a cotton storage bag
  • It is hand finished with beeswax and jojoba oil
  • Each labyrinth is carefully hand polished, to ensure all edges are smooth.

What makes this labyrinth unique?

This labyrinth is small, but mighty - its size compels you to slow down and be more mindful of the process of walking along the path. The small size of this labyrinth makes it perfect for carrying with you, keeping on a desk or a peace table, and if space is limited, storing it. The edges of the labyrinth are rounded and profiled, so it nestles in your hands. That makes it very satisfying yet comfortable to hold. It is a good, portable size for both children and adults.

Finger labyrinths are a great tool to have at home or on an office desk. 'Walking' the labyrinth is a right-brain activity enhancer and helps calm oneself and enhances problem-solving. A carved finger path makes it unnecessary to look, allowing one to focus on the walk. As opposed to a traditional maze, there are no wrong turns. The path, no matter how twisted, leads to the center. Our labyrinths have a well-defined center, making it natural for a thumb to rest at the end of the walk. Experiment with using the non-dominant hand to find the way!
