    LA SENDA LABYRINTH

    When the expert in energy work Sergio Salas discovered several energy points on the property, it was unclear for us what we were going to do with them. It was Sergio himself who suggested building a labyrinth around the two opposite charged centers found in the middle of the forest. La Senda’s house was already built on top of one energy vortex.

    All the information and the details of the labyrinth were led by Sergio over some time; the position of the entrance in the North, and the exit in the South, the fact that all turns had to take place in the central part of the labyrinth, there had to be 14 layers (two times seven = two complete musical scales), and it had to be built out of cactus to attract Prana (Life Force), according to the knowledge from local indigenous tribes.

     

    As the biggest in the world, the labyrinth measures above 2.5 acres (over 1 hectare) and the path is almost 2 miles (3km) long. It took 6 years to develop and now is fully planted with over 5.000 cactus. All sentient beings, like humans, animals, and plants in La Senda constantly live under the upbeat influence of this big pulsing heart of energy.
