Virtual Labyrinths on the Internet

Labyrinth in Lucca

For those commuting to work by bus or train, or those waiting in an aiport or on a flight, there are now an increaing number of virtual labyrinths to enable you to spend that time in a more peaceful and meditative way.

Virtual labyrinths are an essential tool for those who are house-bound, for keeping children amused or for those who are bed-ridden. Or when you simply live too far from the nearest labyrinth.

Two of our favourites are below. The first is a virtual walk of the Labyrinth of the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Chartres. The second is a tracing of the very small labyrinth on the wall outside the Duomo di Lucca, the Cathedral of St Martin, in Lucca, Italy (as shown on the left).

Other virtual labyrinths we have found:

Labyrinth Apps

Labyrinths are now being made for iPads, iPhones and other SmartPhones.

The iPause app provides six labyrinth designs. "A green glass marble traces your path through the labyrinth. This ball can move on its own, or perhaps you would prefer to slide it along its path using your touch. Listen to soothing music while you allow yourself a few minutes of peaceful meditation or prayer."

The Labyrinth Walk app has a medieval Chartres-style labyrinth clour-coded to the chakras. "The Labyrinth is a symbol of peace and transformation. With crystal toning bowl music, guide yourself through the Labyrinth to reach its center."
