The Labyrinth laid in the Simkins Hall floor of First UMC Santa Monica is a replica of the Chartres Labyrinth laid in the cathedral around 1220 CE.  Walking the Labyrinth is an ancient spiritual practice, a way to quiet our minds and open our spirits to the presence of the Holy.  Every step a prayer. 


When to Walk?

The Labyrinth is open on the 3rd Sunday of the month*, 2:30 p.m. with the last walk at 4 p.m. and also by appointment.  The Labyrinth is intended for individuals, retreats, church and meditation groups and the community at large to enjoy.  Email labyrinth@santamonicaumc.org or call the church office (310) 393-8258 to schedule a walk.  Office closed on Mondays. *Subject to change.
