Boxwood-bordered labyrinth installed in Lake Lenape park


The Sellersville Parks and Recreation Board and the founders of Shanteel Yoga Sanctuary held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 6 for the Shanteel Yoga Sanctuary Walk installed in Lake Lenape Park.

The labyrinth, a winding path made of grass bordered by beds of crushed red stone, boxwood and English holly, is an ancient tool used for prayer and meditation. To walk the labyrinth, an individual starts at the periphery and walks in a circular pattern to the center space, pause to reflect or pray, then retraces his or her steps out again on the same path.

Claudine Schuster, Shanteel Yoga Sanctuary co-founder, approached the parks and recreation board earlier this year with the proposal of creating a labyrinth 85 feet in diameter in the park.

Schuster and her husband, Erik, fellow co-founder, along with many participating sponsors and supporters, set to work and, with a crew of volunteers, completed the labyrinth in record time.

The labyrinth is located off the parking lot on the west side of the National Guard Armory on East Park Avenue in Sellersville.
