The Center of the Labyrinth

Solo performance by

 Shelley Campbell

Shelley shares her intimate story of losing a grown son to a drug overdose and the inspirational spiritual deepening that follows her trip into the underworld.  

The opioid crisis is officially an epidemic and is the number one killer of young adults.  Shelley lifts the curtain on the human emotions and experiences behind the statistics. 

Shelley is washed away by grief, regret and excruciating what-ifs. Awash on an open sea of pain and shame she spirals into drug and alcohol abuse. In desperation she turns to labyrinth  walking at Grace Cathedral to find her way into a new life.       

With humor she bracingly discovers her pride in her dedicated spiritual pursuits dating back decades are woefully inadequate to the nitty gritty challenge facing her now.    

She learns to take one step at a time as she circles back and forth in the labyrinth slowly opening her heart to her inner guidance.             

Her story is compounded by the cultural stigma and shame associated with hard drug use and addiction. She is stunned when she receives a cold slap of judgment from individuals who believe some deaths don’t count. She painfully discovers the lack of emotional intelligence around these issues is staggering. 

Ultimately her story is redemptive and inspirational. Through her trip to the underworld she discovers a new and deeper spirituality grounded in forgiveness, humility and generosity. Paradoxically, through her loss she finds an enriched connection to the soulful common miracles of life.

This event is a fundraiser for

The Center for Shamanic Education and Exchange

 Woven Song textiles are designed by the Shipibo people, an indigenous tribe that lives in the Amazon Jungle in Peru. The Shipibos see and hear these patterns in nature and reproduce them in song and design for a variety of purposes such as protection, healing, abundance and harmony. Each of the designs has a specific meaning and can be sung as each of these artful prayers also function as a musical score, called an Icaro. The design element and the Icaro operate cohesively to carry the power of the healing or blessing. The textiles are one-of-a-kind and handmade.

Each cloth, three examples below, is one-of-a-kind and captures a prayer or song of protection.
