Paverart Labyrinth Walk at Mind Body Spirit Expo
Paverart, a world leader in paver designs and fabrications, based in Lindenwold, New Jersey, will manufacture a labyrinth walk to be featured at the Mind Body Spirit Expo, which takes place at the Valley Forge Convention Center from November 21 to 23. The labyrinth experience at the expo will highlight the company’s Exemplar series design. Assembled, the design closely portrays the original Chartres labyrinth created in France’s Chartres Cathedral in 1220, which became the design of choice for many organizations and churches throughout the country and abroad. The “scared geometry” of this powerful labyrinth is said to be transformativetransformative for many that walk it, creating a demand for the installations in hospitals and retreat and healing centers.
Paverart has been creating labyrinths for residential, commercial and institutional settings since 2006, when it created and eight-circuit Chartres-style labyrinth for Planetree Hospital, in Williamsburg, Virginia, that featured Planetree’s logo in the center. The pavers used in the Chartres-style design are larger than most to reflect the size of the stones used in the original Chartres labyrinth.
Mick Seroka, Paverart’s president and head CAD designer, described how this design stands out. “It wasn’t until I had to create a mathematically correct design of a Chartres labyrinth that I realized how amazing this creation really is,” he admits. “I build many in my facility, and walk every one of them myself. It’s a very powerful experience that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy.” The patented process of cutting pavers into precise designs has enabled the creation of many national projects. The company is currently working on a major hardscaping project for the Phoenix Zoo, in Arizona, as well as providing materials for the recently dedicated 9/11 Memorial in Evesham, New Jersey.
Location: The Paverart Labyrinth will be in booth C107 at the Mind Body Spirit Expo, Valley Forge Convention Center, 1160 1st Ave., King of Prussia, PA. For more information, visit MindBodySpiritExpo.com.
