Have you ever experienced a labyrinth? No, not the David Bowie film from the 80s – an actual labyrinth. The twisting, coiled paths that people often walk along as an act of meditation or prayer.

Well, you might not know that Greater Houston is home to quite a few of them. There’s even a temporary one called Scaped Senses installed near Moody Park through Jan. 19. And, in the fall of 2016, labyrinth enthusiasts from all over the country assembled in Houston for the annual gathering of The Labyrinth Society.

To learn more, we revisit Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty’s visit last year to an area labyrinth with local enthusiast Sarah Gish.
