Labyrinth Walk to End Alzheimer’s
June 21, 2018
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Alzheimer’s disease impacts 44 million people with the illness worldwide, plus millions of caregivers. Grace Cathedral is partnering with glassybaby and Rivet Revolution on a special labyrinth walk to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and support organizations fighting for a cure. June 21, the summer solstice, is “The Longest Day,” a globally recognized day of Alzheimer’s awareness and action. Walking the labyrinth is a beautiful, healing spiritual practice and Grace Cathedral is home to the Modern Labyrinth Movement. At this special walk, the labyrinth will be wonderfully lit by glassybaby votives; there will be exquisite live music, and you can learn about and purchase Rivet Revolution’s bracelets and glassybaby votives that help fund Alzheimer’s research, education and caregiver support.
About Rivet Revolution The Revolution started in the summer of 2016 with three goals: to fund research and support for caregivers, to empower the networks of families and friends who have been affected by Alzheimer’s and to have a blast doing so. Designed to be worn every day and inspired by the strong and permanent bond of the rivet, Rivet Revolution bracelets aim to spark conversations, raise awareness and form connections amongst those impacted by Alzheimer’s
About glassybaby glassybaby began when the light of a candle in hand-blown glass gave hope to Lee Rhodes. This hope helped her heal from cancer three times and inspired a business devoted to giving hope, beauty, kindness and millions of dollars to help people, animals and our planet heal. Each glassybaby votive and drinker shines with color formed from solid glass batons, that today glow in hundreds of uniquely-named hues and shapes as varied as your various moods each born through the craft of a human like you.
About the labyrinth Grace Cathedral is home to not just one but two labyrinths — and to the Modern Labyrinth Movement. Labyrinths have appeared in many cultures since ancient times and in Christian spirituality since the fourth century. We welcome you to our labyrinths as a walking meditation, a spiritual practice or simply an opportunity to calm the mind and enjoy peace, quiet and reflection.
