Writings

Our writings appear in many places, both in print and online. Our primary focus is on solid, factual discussion of the labyrinth and its place in the world, historically and currently. Many of Jeff’s labyrinth articles are available through the Labyrinthos archive, but  a sampling of Kimberly’s thoughts and words can be found here.
