Grace Cathedral San Francisco

Grace Cathedral

Grace with light

Grace Cathedral is the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of California, and an iconic house of prayer for all it is a place where you experience something different where the boundaries of religion do not co-exist, were you can meditate in your own faith, and ponder while traversing through the labyrinth.  As a plus, you can admire  the art in every corner  of it .

Grace Cathedral has two labyrinths. The outdoor labyrinth, to the right of the cathedral doors is always open.  The other labyrinth is found within the cathedral.

The labyrinths

“The labyrinth is an archetype, a divine imprint, found in all religious traditions in various forms around the world. By walking a replica of the Chartres labyrinth, laid in the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France around 1220, we are rediscovering a long-forgotten mystical tradition.” -Grace Cathedral

While walking through the labyrinth, keep an open mind and meditate to release our joys, and sorrows. The path itself is only one way, meaning there are no dead-ends and tricks.
