This 4″ Ely miniPath design is inlaid into high-grade plastic.
A miniPath® functions in much the same way as a finger labyrinth, (to further relaxation, meditation & prayer) except you use a stylus rather than a finger to move through the design (the paths are too narrow for a finger to use). They are designed to fit in a pocket, purse, briefcase or sit on a desktop. Whether at home, work, school, in a car, train or airplane, the Ely miniPath is ready to use anytime for greater relaxation, personal focus and guidance. Included with your Ely miniPath is a stylus, velour carrying pouch (which doubles as a non-sliding surface on which to rest the miniPath®), information card about the design and directions for use.
This unique labyrinth pattern was created at Ely Cathedral in England during a restoration in 1870. The cathedral’s west tower is 215 feet tall. Interestingly, the labyrinth that is inlaid in the floor beneath this tower, has a path that is 215 feet long from the entrance to the center and back out again. This symmetry between the height of the tower and the length of the labyrinth path is a wonderful example of sacred geometry in architecture. Also, this design has nearly as long a path as the Chartres pattern, but the design itself is more compact with the user meandering through various geometric shapes. This benefits both designer and user by having a long, introspective path in a smaller, overall space.
