Description
"The Labyrinth. Both circular and linear, simple and complex. Contained within a compact space, a long and difficult path constantly doubles back on itself, leading circuitously to an invisible center. From within, the view is extremely restricted and confusing, while from above one discovers a supreme artistry and order. Thus, the labyrinth simultaneously incorporates confusion and clarity, multiplicity and unity, imprisonment and liberation, chaos and order. This paradoxical duality reflects the psychotherapeutic purpose of groping one's way through suffering, darkness and confusion, with the aim of building a capacity for greater insight and perspective, thus enlarging the personality."
