Labyrinth and Cernunnos


On the grounds of Trout Lake Abbey, is a Labyrinth.  It is shared by White Mountain Druid Sanctuary and the Mt Adams Zen Temple.  Yes, there is a Buddhist Temple on site too.  It’s amazing how easily Buddhists and Druids get along, but that’s for another post.  The Labyrinth is a great example of this cooperation.  There is a small shrine to light incense at the beginning (and end) of the walk.

Trout Lake Abbey Labyrinth, summer 2017

The picture below was taken right after the Summer Solstice high day ritual.  It wasn’t totally dark yet and after taking the picture of the Stone Circle, I laid down on the bench and watched the stars appear.  There is no glow from any city in the sky here and no sound of far off traffic.  There are also very few mosquitos but lots of singing frogs.

The Bed and Breakfast is to the left, the Cernunnos Shrine and Taranis pillar are right of center, and the Stone Circle is lit up in the center.  Opposite the Stone Circle is Mt Adams (below).

I have plans to incorporate a sort of “walking tarot” reading at some point as I walk the Labyrinth but I haven’t tried it yet.  There are turns in the walk that seem like an appropriate time to draw a card.  And the whole idea of journeying in towards the center, meditating a bit while there, and then journeying back out has the feel of a movement through an issue or idea in life.

On a different topic, our Cernunnos Shrine campaign of nearly two years, is coming to a completion.  We will officially dedicate the Shrine in a week.  We have a few items left for people to purchase if they wish.  There are 42 names on the list of folks who will be honored at the ceremony for their generous patronage of anywhere from $5 to $1000.  I feel humbled and moved by people’s honoring of Cernunnos - I expect he does too.  Thanks to everyone who has helped out.

Mugs, icons and t-shirt for Cernunnos Shrine

The “Cernunnos Shrine Founder” part is printed on the back.  Suggested donation levels are as follows but they are “more or less” so if you would like one, give what you feel is appropriate.  

Mug - $35 (one left)

Icon - $50 (six left, each unique due to wood grain)

T-shirt - $30 (twenty left for adult sizes small to XXL)

I added some extra money to those because I have yet to find a really cheap way to ship small amounts of stuff.  For an ongoing monthly donation, you can go to  For one time payments, you can email us at  All funds go towards building the next Shrine.
