Labyrinth Dreaming

Mindcamper Kaz Ogino emailed Joe Miguez a letter, complete with illustrations that express her reflections on his teaching. Happily he brought it to our attention, and Kaz generously allowed us to share her images with you. Thanks Kaz!

Happy Spring Joe,

I don’t know if you remember me. I took a Mindcamp session with you last year. I still remember your passion, playfulness and insights for the world of labyrinths.

Well, what you said about labyrinths and having walked the Mindcamp labyrinths for the past few years has really been inspiring for me. The upcoming Mindcamp emails have made me long to once again to walk a labyrinth, but our Toronto winter has been a tough one and our local labyrinth unavailable. So I did the next best thing, I created drawings of labyrinths based on the Mountain 10 design. As they say in the commercials, let your fingers do the walking :)

These pieces are 24″ x 19″ water colours and ink on paper. I thought you might like to see one of the ways your passion and generosity inspired this Mindcamper.

“Things outside you are projections of what’s inside you, and what’s inside you is a projection of what’s outside. So when you step into the labyrinth outside you, at the same time you’re stepping into the labyrinth inside.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Attention Americans! There’s Money to Be Saved!

CanAmLoveHow would you like to save 20% on your Mindcamp fees? Well you can, if you pay in American dollars.*

Check out the picture at the bottom of this blog entry. That’s the sad, sad picture of our Canadian dollar sagging in relation to the mighty US buck in the past year. Our dollar has not been worth this little since 2009.

But for how long? Today C$720 Mindcamp registration fee is just US$566, a difference of more than 20%. Register now, American friends (or any friends with US bank accounts), if you want to lock in that deal!

*Paid through Paypal with your credit card. No cheques or IOUs.
