ENCINITAS — Again this Jan. 1, environmental artist Kirkos will draw his traditional mediation labyrinth in the sand of an Encinitas beach. Kirkos plans for it to be an interactive event with the public and, as always, it takes hours to complete.
Although the exact location will not be announced this year to prevent crowding and parking problems, the event will happen on New Year’s Day 2010, starting 10 a.m. Guests and participants are requested to park in the Moonlight Beach parking lot and walk north about a mile and a half to the labyrinth.
Encinitas resident Kirkos is a long-time member of the San Dieguito Art Guild and Off Track Gallery and is dedicating this year’s labyrinth to the guild in appreciation of their support of his art. The public is invited to bring gifts for the labyrinth. Items must be biodegradable such as flowers, colored stones, and coarse salt. Kirkos asks that nothing be brought that will need to be picked up at the end of the event.
