Celebrating World Labyrinth Day – Saturday May 6th 2023

Posted by Soberman's Estate on May 6, 2023 at 7:00 AM

If one were to make a pilgrimage today to Chartres France, they would find an 800+ year old Cathedral and on the floor of that cathedral is a famous walking path called a labyrinth. Many books and articles have been written about the famous Chartres Labyrinth and the miracles that have occurred to those walking this ancient path. Before Soberman’s Estate opened in Cave Creek, Arizona a team of professionals worked for months to recreate the exact 34 turn Chartres Labyrinth on the grounds of Soberman’s Estate. Soberman’s Estate is a State Licensed, Nationally Accredited, World Class Behavioral Health Residential Center specializing in helping professional men recover from alcoholism and other addictions. The 2 differences between the Chartres France Labyrinth and the Soberman’s Estate Labyrinth are the Soberman’s Estate Labyrinth was built outdoors around an ancient saguaro cactus and the path was created using indigenous purple jasper stones. Clients walk the Soberman’s Estate Labyrinth as a moving meditation and for many activities including our Commencement Stone Ceremony.


Having walked the Labyrinth daily for years, the team at Soberman’s Estate is joyful to celebrate “World Labyrinth Day” as we have seen The Power of the Labyrinth for Men in Recovery!

World Labyrinth Day is an annual event that takes place on the first Saturday in May, dedicated to promoting the labyrinth as a tool for personal, community, and global peace. The labyrinth is an ancient symbol that has been used for meditation, reflection, and healing for thousands of years. At Soberman's, we believe in the power of the labyrinth as a tool for men in recovery.

What is a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is a complex maze-like design, often found in medieval cathedrals and temples, that has been used for spiritual and therapeutic purposes. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has only one path that leads to the center and back out again. This path represents a journey and the center is a place of stillness and contemplation.

The Benefits of the Labyrinth for Men in Recovery

  1. Bi-Lateral Stimulation: Similar to how EMDR and ART utilize Bi-Lateral Stimulation, the ancient, silent, left right walking pattern stimulates a sense of calm and peace: The repetitive and meditative nature of walking the labyrinth can help to calm the mind and reduce stress, promoting a sense of peace and well-being.

  2. Encourages reflection: The labyrinth provides a space for reflection and introspection, helping men in recovery to gain insight into their thoughts and emotions.

  3. Supports spiritual growth: The labyrinth can be used as a tool for spiritual growth, connecting individuals with their inner selves and a higher power.

  4. Promotes physical health: Walking the labyrinth is a gentle form of exercise that can help to improve physical health and wellbeing.

  5. Enhances mindfulness: The labyrinth encourages mindfulness and being present in the moment, helping men in recovery to overcome distractions and focus on the present.

At Soberman's, we recognize the importance of holistic healing and the role that the labyrinth can play in supporting men in recovery. On World Labyrinth Day, we encourage everyone to explore the benefits of the labyrinth and to experience its power for themselves.

In conclusion, the labyrinth is a powerful tool for personal growth and healing, and we believe it can play a crucial role in the recovery journey of men. We invite you to join us in celebrating World Labyrinth Day and to learn more about the benefits of the labyrinth by visiting the following resources:

Counselor Awareness Month: Prioritizing Self-Care to Prevent Burnout

Posted by Soberman's Estate on April 26, 2023 at 7:00 AM

April is Counselor Awareness Month, and we would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude to Jerry Ehmann, Alin Calini, and Kevin Dalton as well as celebrate and recognize the incredible work done by all counselors. We also want to emphasize the importance of self-care for these mental health professionals. Counselors in these facilities, such as Sobermans’s Estate, face the challenging task of providing support for men dealing with depression, suicidal thoughts, addiction, and other mental health issues. The gravity of this responsibility makes it crucial for counselors to prioritize their own well-being to avoid burnout and continue providing high-quality care for their clients.
