A Place of Peace and Quiet
The Sacred Grove
A Bit of Background
The Sacred Grove became reality when Lucy got inspired to build a labyrinth. She and her husband, Pat, bought 10 acres of land that had always held spiritual significance for them. They picnicked and walked this land with their children never realizing how significant these acres would become to them and to all the future visitors who would come to enjoy this special place since the inception of the Sacred Grove in 1999.
Sacred Ceremonies, Ltd, a nonprofit, includes a place called the Sacred Grove where visitors may be spiritually renewed through the use of the Athani II retreat cabin, labyrinth, meditation garden, and paths, all where sacred ceremonies may be performed by assisting with rites of passage such as child blessings, weddings and caring for their deceased loved one. It also includes education to the community concerning death and dying issues and grief support.
These 10 acres of The Sacred Grove are yours to enjoy. The Sacred Grove provides space for being…whatever that means to you.
The Sacred Grove is a place
for people to give themselves space to “allow time to stand still,”
to experience the trees at work, cleansing and helping to heal the body as you walk the trails,
to encourage you to meditate at one of the quiet bench areas,
where your Spirit will be encouraged to speak to you as you walk the labyrinth and as you sit on the boulder in the center, allowing your mind and body to speak to you.
Although Sacred Ceremonies, Ltd. legally owns this land, in actuality, we are all stewards of it. Use it joyfully, sacredly, and as often as you would like. The Sacred Grove has been incorporated so it will exist in perpetuity.
We would request that you honor the sacredness of all that makes up The Sacred Grove.

Walking the Labyrinth
You may want to walk the labyrinth…
A labyrinth is a path of prayer, a walking meditation that can become a mirror of the soul…
A labyrinth is not a maze. A maze is designed for you to lose your way; a labyrinth is designed for you to find your way.
The goal of walking the labyrinth is to connect with God (or your Higher Power.) One of the by-products of walking the labyrinth is transformation. The key to getting the most out of your walk is to remain open.
There are as many ways to walk the labyrinth as there are people who walk it. There is no “right” way or “wrong” way. However you choose to interact with God (or your Higher Power) as you walk is “the right way.”
