Are you burdened by the harsh economy? Want to get away from it all? Do you feel stressed out and at your wits end? You could climb upon the roof or get down on the boardwalk or even go downtown. But if you live in the DFW area, then the best place to go is to one of the seven labyrinths in the DFW area.

Labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France

According to the Church's website, "The labyrinth is a pattern and a symbol passed down through the centuries dating back over 4,000 years. The design which rose from the Christian tradition describes a meandering path that leads from the outside into the center and back out again. The St. Stephen labyrinth, dedicated on September 19, 2004, is known as an eleven circuit Chartres style labyrinth, an exact replica of the labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France."
