Tony Christie's first labyrinth by Tony Christie

Tony Christie is the author of Labyrinth Wisdom Cards, a 48-card deck and handbook. He built his first labyrinth in his backyard in Cork, Ireland, in 2005.

Tony says, "Not realising that I could paint, I sought out artists to illustrate the images that I was seeing for each card.  This approach didn't work; so, I tentatively took up a paintbrush and attempted my first painting - the aptly named 'Simplicity;' a childlike painting where apparent imperfections were part of the desired result - and one I knew I couldn't do 'wrong'! After that it was just like walking a labyrinth, taking one step at a time and moving on to the next painting until several years later all the cards were illustrated.  Undoubtedly a case of the labyrinth enhancing creativity, and a real labyrinth journey within a labyrinth journey!"

Debi and Marty Kermeen of Labyrinths in Stone have built hundreds of labyrinths since 1998, including 50 stone labyrinths.

The Heart in the Park Labyrinth, in Tonkawa OK was designed by Marty Kermeen in collaboration with Jeff Saward, and graces the cover of the Kermeen's new book Miracles Along the Path: Heart Warming Stories from the Labyrinth. It's a lovely photo album-style collection of images and stories about the labyrinths they've built around the world.

The labyrinth by Labyrinths in Stone at Centennial Elementary School, in Plano, Illinois is based on a drawing entitled "The Healing Tree," by artist and labyrinth designer, Sue Ann Foster. Students and teachers participated with the Kermeens in its creation.
