As long as the human race is tantalized and intrigued by the unknown paths, our spiritual development is unfolding as it should. For a journey down a few of those paths, this universal guide is invaluable.

Cherie Thiessen, January Magazine

MacQueen takes the reader through a fascinating history of the labyrinth and and mazes and explores the differences while at the same thime clarifying the specific intention of each.
