  7. 7. 01/29/15 paulmtilley@gmail.c 7 Labyrinths In March 2000, a labyrinth was set up in St Paul’s Cathedral, London for one week. Described on the advertising flyer as ‘an interactive installation for spiritual journeys’, it consisted of a pathway mapped on the ground for the participants to follow. En route there were various stations at which the participant paused to listen to a track of music and a meditation on a Discman and participate in some symbolic or ritual action. The labyrinth incorporated a mix of items recognisably within the tradition of Christian worship, things used in everyday life and current technology. It was designed and constructed by various ‘alternative worship’ groups in London as a special millennium celebration and outreach event.
