The Labyrinth Society invites the world to "Walk as One at 1," and be part of a rolling wave of peaceful energy as the world turns. People worldwide are invited to walk a labyrinth at 1 pm in their local time zones, or as time allows. To participate locally, people are invited to walk one of Harmony Grove's labyrinths May 3rd.
