Come explore the circles of life that connect us to the energy in and around us as we enjoy this delightful combination of basic Tai Chi and labyrinth walking. No previous Tai Chi experience is needed. Please wear loose clothing _ comfortable shoes. Bring a folding lawn chair if you have one.

Soup Tin Labyrinth Walk
The Manitoba Labyrinth Network helped Ecole St. Avila students create a labyrinth in their gym with soup tins and food items that they collected for Winnipeg Harvest. The students and staff walked the labyrinth this afternoon and then donated the food items to Winnipeg Harvest. A grade 5 class made a presentation about labyrinths and the Carol Shields Memorial Labyrinth at the school assembly in the morning. Then a grade 6 class helped set up the labyrinth, magically moving soup tins, pasta, cereal boxes, diapers, shampoo and other donated items into a labyrinth pattern. The labyrinth was a new design that they altered and improved as the labyrinth progressed. Some of the students decided that we should include gym mats for the outside path of the labyrinth. One teacher brought down some Christmas lights that flickered and another teacher found some small Christmas trees. The whole labyrinth mushroomed into a creative collaboration in keeping with the focus of the holiday season!!
