This set of two-5″ Man in the Maze miniPaths are inlaid into recycled wood.
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, these Man in the Maze miniPaths are ready to use anytime for greater relaxation, personal focus and guidance. Included with each Man in the Maze 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 design comes out of the spiritual tradition of the Tohono/O’odham tribe in Southwest Arizona and New Mexico. The figure waiting at the top/entrance to the design, may represent the concept of a child (all of Creation) being birthed by its’ mother (Mother Earth). It may also represent the process of moving inside yourself to get in touch with the creative process and thereby give birth to new ideas. Several non-uniform path widths (wide to narrow from the outermost to the innermost areas) may indicate movement from a heavier, denser, constrictive energetic pattern (our everyday lives), to a lighter, finer, more expansive energetic pattern (the spiritual realm). The design looks somewhat like a dreamcatcher and therefore, may help trap unwanted or negative thoughts and feelings you walked in with. You are then able to leave those thoughts and feelings behind and follow the path back out, feeling more uplifted, lighter and freer in both mind and body.
