The Prairie Labyrinth in Kansas City

Within each of us lies our center, a vortex of truth. Years are spent in the labyrinth of living, looking for the passageway to guide us in. We reach the apex of our journey when we clearly see- there is no return, but on the path that led us out. -Keeper of the Circles

 

Creating an earth-based labyrinth is creating living Art.
The art of living is the art of changing directions. A labyrinth imitates Life's journey taking us through reversals or constant turning points, but the single-path design ultimately returns us to our center. It provides a direct passageway to enter the NOW, bringing us into the present moment.

Because the Prairie Labyrinth near Kansas City is cut into living grasses, the path changes every day, reflecting our own cycles of evolution. This is especially apparent when the weather or seasons change.

Walking a labyrinth is a simple whole-body prayer, reconnecting you with the Presence that lies within.

Overview

Since 1987, Toby Evans has been practicing earth stewardship on property purchased near Kansas City, Missouri. During this time a prairie restoration project was initiated by planting warm season grasses on 5 acres. The project evolved from a network of paths cut around the perimeter of the prairie to constructing and maintaining a single-path labyrinth in the center. A Classical Seven-Circuit pattern was mowed into the grass on March 23, 1995, installed by Toby and Mary K Barge. It is called the Prairie Labyrinth.

    Maintaining the Prairie Labyrinth

    The most exciting part of maintaining the prairie grasses is not mowing the paths or hand pruning the grasses that begin to fall into the pathways. It is conducting a controlled burn. This happens every 2-3 years to help clear out the old dead grasses and weeds growth. It is done in the spring of the year and the heat helps to jumpstart the new underground growth.

    Participating in a burn is a memorable experience that is open to anyone who wants to help.

     

    A controlled ring-head burn is done with two ignition and containment teams moving in opposite directions around the circumference of the land. The fire is directed toward the center allowing the labyrinth to be the last area to burn. When the burn is complete, the image of the labyrinth remains visible in the field. This is the only time the pattern is clearly revealed, the way other labyrinths usually look.

    The next scheduled burn will be the spring of 2017.
