The Holzer Center for Cancer Care’s “Healing Garden” is the home of the world’s first Reflection Labyrinth¬©, designed by Debi and Marty Kermeen. This labyrinth was created for their patients, families and staff as a place of meditation, prayer and reflection. The labyrinth doubles as a courtyard in the center of the garden and serves as a gathering place for those who are healing.

Labyrinth maker John Ridder of Paxworks, invited us to create his newly designed eight circuit Melissa labyrinth pattern in pavers. One of his clients, Norma Stark, wanted it as the feature piece for a beautiful memorial garden.

After talking with Norma and  Jim, we learned that the number 13 was very significant to them. Weddings, birthdays, times of major change in their life, all taking place on the 13th.

To honor the importance of the number 13, Marty hand carved a perfect golden spiral in the shape of a 30″ Nautilus shell with 13 distinct chambers. The carving was incorporated into the center of this unique and beautiful labyrinth. Norma tells us that all the visitors are compelled to bend down and touch the stone when they arrive at the center of the labyrinth..
