Healing at Sharp Coronado
The Labyrinth at Sharp Coronado Hospital, a circular meditative path, joins the many special features within and outside of the hospital designed to reflect the Planetree model of patient-centered care. The Labyrinth and its surrounding gardens provide a serene outdoor space for use by patients and their families, and members of the community. The area was developed with health and wellness in mind, giving individuals a place to contemplate, relax and find peace while maximizing their comfort and well being.
A labyrinth is not a maze; it is one path composed of many circuits. When walking, one can release thoughts and concerns on the way to the center, pause, and return feeling empowered. As one walks back and forth along the labyrinth, awareness is shifted from right brain to left brain and this leads to a receptive state of consciousness and balance. The mind opens for inner exploration, reflection and relaxation.
Labyrinths have been used to provide comfort, reduce stress and anxiety, and are becoming increasingly present throughout the world. They define sacred space, and have been an integral part of many cultures including Native American, Greek, Celtic and Mayan. The Labyrinth at Sharp Coronado is modeled after the Chartres Cathedral Labyrinth in France built nearly 800 years ago.
