On the 1,000 acre mountaintop wilderness retreat, the wildlife roams free. It's an absolute joy to share the environment with Wallaroos, Kangaroos, Goannas, Possums, Gliders, Crimson Rosellas, Black Cockatoos and so many more wonderful creatures. Wedge-Tail Eagles soar aloft and tranquillity rules.
THE MOONABUNG LABYRINTH.
Often confused with Mazes, where you go to get lost, Labyrinths are where you go to “Find yourself”.
Walked by pilgrims and penitents and an important spiritual part of many cultures for thousands of years, Labyrinths can be found in many of Europe’s medieval churches and cathedrals such as Chartres – on which the Labyrinth opened in Sydney’s Centennial Park in September 2014 was based.
Made almost entirely by hand by Arinya's owners, the Moonabung Labyrinth is accurately modelled on the even older, ancient Cretan pattern.
Other religions incorporate Labyrinths into their spirituality. Buddhists walk them in silent meditation and they are often laid out in sacred shapes that encourage contemplation and thoughtfulness.
Labyrinths, have acknowledged therapeutic and medical benefits and there is evidence that a labyrinth walk is a ‘right brain exercise’ that can activate the intuitive, imagination and creative side of your brain. The mentally calming and meditative effect of Labyrinths has led to more than 200 being built in US Hospitals in the last decade. There’s a Labyrinth at the Westmead Children’s Hospital and they are appearing in Universities, Rehabilitation Clinics, Parks, Schools and many other places worldwide.
