World Labyrinth Day 2020

The 12th annual World Labyrinth Day was a bit unusual, but went on despite the coronavirus pandemic. The difficult situation challenged us to create alternative celebrations and connect in new and innovative ways. The Labyrinth Society offered Walk around the World, a most likely once-in-a-lifetime 24-hour virtual WLD event. Together we made the worldwide labyrinth community more tangible, connecting across times zones in addition to the traditional wave of peace moving from one time zone to another.

Walk around the World presenters and participants were from across the globe, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, Ecuador, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lietuva (Lithuania), the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Rwanda, South Africa, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
