Jane’s Walk gp

Jane Engelbrecht Bashara

Jane exemplified her Christian values well beyond the church walls and touched the hearts of all she encountered. She was a community activist for public schools, athletic programs, scholarships, and her church. As a marketing executive, sister, aunt, daughter, friend, and community leader, she had many roles. The most important role was being a mother. Her two children were her pride and joy.

Why a Labyrinth?

Jane’s Walk is a replica of the Chartres labyrinth laid in the floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France, circa 1220. It will be built at 20475 Sunningdale Park, Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan. The location provides open access to the public. Anyone wishing to walk the labyrinth’s path will be welcomed.

The labyrinth provides a place to reflect, contemplate and pray. It will be positioned in the heart of the community to remind those who seek its path that they are not alone. An ancient symbol found in many religions across the world, labyrinths represent life’s journey. Walkers of a labyrinth will find only one entrance and path to reach the center. As their meditation journey unfolds, they will discover many opportunities for spiritual guidance, enlightenment, and growth along the way.
