Full Moon ‘Buck’ Maze Walk at Edgecomb Community Church
Join us for the full “Buck” Moon Maze Walk on Friday July 23 starting at 7:30 pm at the Labyrinth in the Field, located on the grounds of the Edgecomb Community Church. The maze walk will be guided by Pastor Kate Pinkham.
According to The Old Famer’s Almanac, full moon names come from several sources, including Native American, American colonial and European traditions. The full moon in July is called Buck Moon because it is at this time of year that the antlers of male deer (bucks) are in full growth. Males shed and regrow their antlers each year, producing an even larger set over the years.
Maze Walks have been used for centuries and in many cultures as a tool for prayer, healing, and personal and spiritual growth and have something to offer everyone. Walking through a maze can help calm our spirits to arbitrate, help overcome grief, anger, physical challenge or illness, encourage gratitude, or just give life time to reflect.
The Labyrinth in the Field is located next to the church building at 15 Cross Point Road, Edgecomb, Maine. It is a medieval style of seven-circuit Chartres designed after a thirteenth-century labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France.
For more information, please email the church at [email protected] or call the office at 882.4060. The events are free for all. Donations are gratefully accepted for the maintenance of the labyrinth.
The Labyrinth in the Field is open from dawn to dusk, 7 days a week, year-round – but the snow is not removed during the winter months.
