In response to the worldwide call from Veriditas labyrinth facilitators for a unified effort on June 8, 2010 World Ocean Day, this labyrinth was built on the sandy beach at Gibraltar Point, Toronto Island. The island is situated off the shore of Lake Ontario and is a ten-minute ferry ride from downtown Toronto. Although this beach is not affected by ocean tides, it daily shifts and changes as it is washed by the Great Lake currents and storms that move in from both the east and the west, thereby rendering this labyrinth an ephemeral statement. It was created by the Gestare Art Collective with an intention to energetically assist the wellhead capping effort that is currently reducing the amount of leakage from 3.8 million gallons a day to 1.7 million. Attuning to the land, each other, and the environmental crisis, the labyrinth was entered as an active meditation that included embodied sonic expressions. Subtle energies gathered from the walking were sent to the wellhead. We walked in the knowing that energy and intention consciously directed can make a difference.
