At low tide Saturday between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m., the La Jolla High School Interact Club and members of Bird Rock Artist Guild will create a temporary labyrinth walking path at Law Street Beach.

Families are invited to participate in the ancient spiral designed walking path and temporary art experience that will be lighted with 300 luminaria candle bags temporary art experience.

In the center of the Labyrinth there will be a no-obligation donation jar to collect for Interact’s fall service project “Project Mercy” — building a home in Mexico for an impoverished family.

Interact, associated with the La Jolla Rotary, will use the donations to purchase building materials.

Look for the umbrella, table and Interact sign near the north side of the ramp. For more information contact Jane Wheeler at (619) 822-1120 or dwheeler@san.rr.com.

What is a labyrinth?

Labyrinths have been around for at least 3500 years, in countries all over the world, They have been carved into rocks, turf and wood; engraved in metal; laid out in stones; woven; set in tile, painted and drawn. The labyrinth is a symbol of our journey through life, the unity of our life path and the center that awaits wherever we are on the path. Because of its lack of complexity, it can be used as a meditative, relaxing, calming, centering path to walk and clear your mind.
