At low tide on Saturday, 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.

The whole family can come and experience this ancient spiral designed walking path and temporary art experience. At sunset the group will light the path with 300 luminaria candle bags.

Located in the center of the labyrinth will be a no-obligation donation jar of giving to collect for Interact’s spring project of building a home in Mexico for an impoverished family. Interact is a La Jolla High service club affiliated with the La Jolla Rotary. Donations will be used to purchase building materials.

Participants can show up between 6:45 and 7 p.m. to help create the labyrinth. 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

Labyrinths have been around for at least 3,500 years. They have been found all over the world in different historic periods: at Neolithic and Sardinian and Hopi rock art sites, in Hindu temples and Taoist shrines, bordering Minoan frescoes and in Roman mosaics. 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 nearly universal form and comes as close as we can to an archetype. It 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.
