The Thomas Berry Sanctuary

The Riverdale Centre

Enjoy our art space and library. You are welcome to use our art materials, such as clay, water paints and pastels - perfect for grounding your insights after a spiritual direction session. Our library contains books and DVDs (and a DVD player) relating to spirituality, the great mystics, poetry, and Earth-centred spirituality.

The Spiral

The Spiral Labyrinth copies one of the most ancient geometric symbols– the spiral. This geometrical pattern appears on ancient Egyptian temples as well as Celtic monuments; in nature, the spiral pattern appears in plants, on certain seashells and, most significant of all, it is the design of our galaxy. Read about how to walk a spiral at the Resilient Practice website.

The Labyrinth

We have an eleven circuit labrynth, modeled on the ancient labrynth at the cathedral of Chartres, in France.

Labyrinth walking is an ancient practice used by many different faiths for spiritual centering, contemplation, and prayer. Entering the serpentine path of a labyrinth, you walk slowly while quieting your mind and focusing on a spiritual question or prayer. You can read more about labrynths at the Veriditas website. Global Healing Response is a simple plan using the labyrinth and the labyrinth community for unified healing and to promote calm and grief integration in the case of an emergency or disaster.
