Hot Springs’ Labyrinth Inspires Reflection & Poetry

One of the truly unique features of Lookout Point’s lakeside gardens is the 11-circuit labyrinth.  If you’re unfamiliar with a labyrinth, it is a historic form of walking prayer and meditation.  Unlike a maze, the labyrinth has no dead ends.  Ours is modeled after the Chartres, France labyrinth from the 13th century!

Lookout Point Lakeside Inn labyrinth

The Inn's labyrinth

Recent guest David R., after walking the labyrinth, was inspired to write this poem. We are truly honored!

A Place That Breathes Deeply

A place that breathes deeply that falls off the hill

Dionysus lays waiting to fend off your ills.

You yield to the magic  of natures great feast

And drink in the nectar that quietens the beast.

Alone in the garden the labyrinth stands round

To take you to places without any sounds.

A spot in the center, the middle is thine

The future is here, Yes, eternity shines.
