Circles In The Sand
In 2011 Circles in the Sand began as a special project of artist Denny Dyke’s labyrinth ministry ~ Sacred Journeys. Labyrinths started appearing on the beaches in Bandon, Oregon and rumors started about aliens and crop circles. Denny created the first Dreamfield labyrinth in September of 2014 and is still walking in circles. Circles as a public venture began full time scheduling in January 2015, and since then more than 20,000 pairs of feet have walk the sandy path. Summer season starts May 16, 2018 and will consist of 35 Draws through August. All are welcome. Contact them if you would like to be a guest groomer, and space is limited so plan ahead. Celebrating something special? Let them help you create a memorable event on the Sand, or for the summer schedule, check out their website Here.
