    Outdoor Labyrinth Meditation Garden

    Located in a courtyard at the DiSepio Center, students of various faiths can take a journey into oneself. The tradition of the labyrinth dates back to medieval times when people who could not travel long distances to shrines would take their pilgrimages by walking a labyrinth at a nearby Cathedral. The three-lobe labyrinth is patterned into the pavers that constitute the courtyard’s floor. Access from either from the Institute’s first-floor atrium or from the Mall.

    The indoor meditation room offers individuals and small groups an opportunity to meditate and pray, isolated from the building’s otherwise busy environment on the Institute’s second floor. The room contains a small library as well as various meditation focal points and icons. A variety of programs are held here including Bible studies and reflections, yoga and meditation, with prayer mats and shawls to assist all faiths in prayer.
