Judith Joyce (http://www.journeybeyondbelief.com) creates onsite labyrinths for public and private use, in addition to three canvas labyrinths for conference presentations, workshops and ceremonies throughout the United States and abroad.

An interfaith minister, she often performs weddings in a labyrinth such as the one pictured here, a 3-circuit classical labyrinth created for the event.  Judith used fall foliage garlands to outline the Classical labyrinth design, and placed pumpkins at the entrance and in the center.  Since the Massachusetts couple's favorite season is Autumn, they chose Vermont at peak foliage time for their wedding.

Judith will offer labyrinth walks at the New World Fair at the Pasadena Convention Center, Pasadena, CA, Saturday and Sunday, May 16-17, 2009, and will speak on "Labyrinths: Paths to Peace and Transformation" at 2 pm each day. She will also offer a cancer survivor walk at 3 pm Saturday, and a Walk for World Peace at 3 pm Sunday.

The author's 21-foot diameter, classical seven-circuit bird seed labyrinth was first created on Oct. 31, 2007, to honor the popular Mexican holiday Dios de Los Muertos, the time of the thin veil between this world and beyond. It's been recreated as needed, as weather or aviary celebrants disperse the seed, (Cost: $2.79 for birdseed. Value: Priceless!)
