An Invitation
For over twenty years Crossroads Hospice Society has provided support to those affected by end of life experience. As a part of that legacy Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice has experienced, first hand, the healing power of nature through its rooftop sanctuaries. Now, through the Crossroads Hospice Labyrinth Healing Garden, we are able fully integrate nature into our compassionate focus for both our patients, staff, volunteers, supporters and our community.

Located on the grounds of Pioneer Memorial Park in Port Moody, BC, this labyrinth-style was built in partnership with the City of Port Moody and contributions of time, energy and talents by a host of supporter and volunteers. As a point on the Trans Canada Trail is also welcome respite for tourists and weary travelers and joins a community of over 3,000 labyrinths worldwide.

A Healing Tool
The labyrinth healing garden is a unique tool in the extension of our bereavement services as well as a place for members of our community to find peace and serenity. Designed for the participants of Crossroads Hospice Society’s programs and services the public is also welcome to enjoy this naturescape for moments of meditation, reflection and healing.

The Labyrinth Path
Labyrinths have been used for over thousands of years, and in many different cultures, as a form of walking meditation. To maximize your visit we suggest you pause before entering the garden and take a deep breath. Concentrate on each step and trust that the path will lead you into the center. Once in the centre, take a moment to reflect on your journey. When you are ready, exit the labyrinth by retracing your steps and notice how you feel. Walkers have expressed a feelings ranging from clarity to relaxation.

Full Moon Walks
Mark your calendars! Once a month, on the evening of a full moon, Crossroads Hospice Society will host public full moon walks at the Crossroads Hospice Labyrinth Healing Garden. Guided by our resident labyrinth expert, Janice Hansen Bouvier, these walks will aid you in exploring the labyrinth concept and use the garden as your personal peaceful and reflective tool.
