IN 2009 WE VISITED LOWESTOFT BEACH to draw a labyrinth in the sand. Making a labyrinth and walking its path is a chance to coalesce with nature and attain coherence with our surroundings, while at the same time resonating with an ancient symbol; and working next to the sea brings a perfect time for personal reflection and relaxation. An apocalyptic ultramarine storm washed north along the horizon as we worked on the beach, almost like it was checking us out, and our artwork to decide if she was going to take it back to nature. We love the ephemeral quality of the materials and building in an environment where nature will soon reduce it to something and nothing. To the sand it once was. Walk the path and you discover the labyrinth is a token of the unbounded potential of everything.
We have created the Classical Seven Circuit Seed Pattern. A labyrinth is a unicursal (SINGLE-PATH) magical tool. It should not be confused for a maze or game, it is a path that has two directions of travel, both of which are forward once you change your point of view. Because of this labyrinths are and have been used to explore personal questions and to deepen our individual awareness.
The pattern has been found all over the world in different forms and in Spain, labyrinths in rock date back to around 2000 BCE, and on tablets from Pylos, southern Greece to 1200 BCE. In Nazca, Peru from 500 BCE (WAY WAY BEFORE THE INCAS) the Nascan people somehow brushed the Nazca Lines into surface of the desert to create giant drawings. The Scandinavian and Baltic regions has the highest concentration of labyrinths with the walls formed from rocks and stones.
In the British Isles there are chalk and turf labrinths, many of which have been lost due to being quickly overgrown. One of the most well-known being Glastonbury Tor, a three dimensional seven circuit labyrinth that rises out from the Somerset Levels like an ancient space craft (THE MOTHER SHIP OF ALL PYRAMIDS) attracted you might say by the proximity of the Mary Michael Ley Line — Lowestoft is the most easterly point of the England, and a few miles from (HOPTON) where the Mary Micheal Ley Line meets the North Sea after crossing England from Cornwall.
