Perhaps nothing expresses the mystery of our search for the divine as well as the labyrinth. A circular pathway based on spirals found in nature, the labyrinth is a time-honored spiritual tool in faith traditions as varied as Native American, Jewish, and Celtic. As seekers walk to the center of the labyrinth, their minds quiet and turn to God. Walking out again, they bring into the world the spiritual gifts they’ve received.

In A Labyrinth Year, Kautz guides readers on a labyrinth pilgrimage that winds through the seasons of the liturgical year with devotions (to be used while walking the labyrinth) based on the thoughts and emotions of biblical characters whose stories are recalled in the seasonal scripture readings. As readers explore the journeys of these people of faith, they connect with the deeper meaning of the stories and learn to live them out in their own experience.

Richard Kautz is an Episcopal priest who serves a parish near Boulder, Colorado. He leads retreats and workshops on personal discernment. A professional actor, he also writes movie reviews linking film and faith for the local press.

"This is a very readable and faith-filled book, to lead you with grace through the seasons of life. Just enough, not too much, but all that you need, to go deeper and broader on the spiritual path."--Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico
