These spectacular labyrinths at the Oregon Coast in Bandon--"Circles in the Sand"--are the brain child of Denny Dyke, who created the paths "as a means of meditation, transformation and healing." He and numerous volunteers create these unique walkable sandy paths based on historical forms so that everyone can experience the "benefits of taking some time just to be themselves."

I should mention that this part of the Coast and Bandon are gorgeous to visit even if there isn't a current labyrinth, too. We were there a few weeks ago and the weather was stunning, too! The weather can be surprising awesome down there in the winter.
