The image of the labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral incorporates imagery of sacred architecture and refers to an ancient symbol of centered wholeness. It suggests a purposeful path down which one passes to a center, one's own center, and then retraces those steps. The labyrinth is a timeless source of balance, knowledge and refined consciousness. The image of the labyrinth is a metaphor of the journey of life. It is a journey we all make as we aspire to live the life well considered.
