'Gift of quiet time' offered on moonlight labyrinth walk


Community members are invited to a moonlight labyrinth walk at Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola Valley on Monday, July 15, from 7 to 9 p.m.

"Give yourself the gift of quiet time with a candlelight meditation walk, under the moon and redwoods," Darlene Batchelder, who is leading the walk, said in a press release.

Referring to the practice as a "moving meditation," organizers note that "walking a labyrinth typically helps reduce stress and distractions, and promotes inner clarity, calm, healing, and a sense of connection with the world around you."

The walk is open to adults, high school students, and middle-schoolers with a parent. Participants are urged to wear sturdy walking shoes and to bring a jacket.

Organizers will offer an introduction to labyrinth walking from 7 to 7:15 p.m., and the labyrinth, located to the right of the sanctuary at Valley Presbyterian, will then be available for use until 9 p.m.

The church is at 945 Portola Road.
