Walking the Dromenon


“…a pattern of dynamic expression in which the performers express something larger than themselves, beyond their powers of speech to express and a therapeutic rhythm in which they find release and fulfilment.”

– Jane Harrison, Ancient Art and Ritual

The walk is customarily divided into three parts, with an inner condition assigned to each.

Entering. You often take into the Dromenon an issue about which you wish to gain understanding. Walking quiets and empties the mind. Some like to silently release a thought or emotion at each turn on the way to the center.

Illumination takes place when you reach the center, which is a place of meditation, reflection or prayer. Receive what is there for you to receive.

Return. As you walk out, you join with God, the Divine, your Higher Power, or the healing forces at work in the world.

Each time you walk the Dromenon, you may become more empowered to find and do that for which you feel your soul yearning.
