Aistear means journey and the metaphor of journey through out the park is associated with the movement from darkness to light. This journey is characterised by growth in human self awareness encompassing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of being. The journey begins in the maze with the beliefs associated with the Hunter-Gatherer Societies of c. 6000 BC and continues to the present time.
The theme of spirituality encountered in the journey through the maze is evoked in present time through the symbol of the labyrinth. The Aistear Labyrinth is intended to function as a symbol of the transformative process involved in an unfolding or evolving Universe. It also represents this process in the inner journey of the human being.
Entry to the Aistear park is free.
