Participation in The Big Connection Research Project
The Legacy Labyrinth Project along with the 400+ participants in the 1st Big Connection learned that the majority of insights received while walking a labyrinth on World Labyrinth Day, 2021, fell into 4 social change categories. They are, human rights, social justice, the environment and strengthening relationships.
As a result, we felt compelled to explore this and other information in further study. In the 2nd Annual Big Connection we asked: “What would happen if groups walked together in brain/heart coherence, with specific intentions for social change?”, “What could happen if they walked regularly with that same intention over a specific period of time? ” What could we learn?”
We had 279 registrations from 13 countries with a 75% questionnaire return rate for the Big Connection 2.0. This is super high of a questionnaire return, we thank you! Your answers will give us even more information about your experience.
In our Focus Group we have learned that being able to “do something” on labyrinths for all that is going on in the world, was appreciated, valued and important.
The final results from Big Connection 1.0 and 2.0 will be shared once they are completed.
