You are now entering a stress free zone

The labyrinth at Southeastern Oklahoma State University is located directly behind the Fine Arts Building. It is open to the public without reservations.

Labyrinths have been around for thousands of years and have been found in a variety of cultures. Many designs and sizes are available. Sometimes confused with mazes, the labyrinth differs in that there are no blocked paths. There is one entrance to a path that eventually leads to the middle. The exit is the same path in reserve.

Locations for labyrinths are varied and include churches, hospitals, educational settings, prisons, businesses, parks, and retreat centers. They are also used in a variety of ways, only limited by one’s imagination. Often, the labyrinth is used for a walking meditation to quiet the mind. Sometimes it is used as a tool for problem-solving, stress relief, creativity awakening, and focus.
