Who can use the labyrinth at Hutt Hospital?

The labyrinth is on Hutt Valley District Health Board land and we have undertaken to look after it.

It is for the use of our board, staff, patients and their carers as well as for general public, whether associated with the hospital or not. Hutt City Council is represented on the committee of volunteers that manages the labyrinth by one of their elected councillors for the central ward.

There is no monetary charge for the use of the labyrinth, but donations are welcome.

The labyrinth is available 24 hours a day 7 days aweek 365 days a year as security lighting comes on automatically at sunset.

The labyrinth has already been used by school groups and as a part of a wedding service that was conducted in the nearby hospital chapel.

The labyrinth offers an ecumenical, interfaith, generic environment for people of all diverse cultures and traditions. It can be used simply for mediation or well-being, or it can be used within a number of traditional religious formats.

The labyrinth offers a creative space for rites, rituals, memorials and celebrations for individuals and groups. The labyrinth has the potential to build community spirit and can be used by local support groups over a range of activities.
