SYNOPSIS

⁣⁣“In order to love who you are, you cannot shape the experiences that shape you” – Andrea Dykstra.

The Pilgrim finds himself faceless in the crowd. The city is noisy, the world is chaotic… he wanders.

His wandering brings him to a labyrinth. Labyrinths are an ancient spiritual exercise used for meditation, prayer, and contemplation; but unlike a maze, it has only one path that leads towards the center. Reaching the center of the labyrinth is a journey around the labyrinth itself.

I, Labyrinth is The Pilgrim's journey to the center. Within is a mystery that beckons. Within may be an answer to his questions.

Inside he will face challenges, distractions on his path to the center. He will confront stifling Normalcy, resist the need to please Others, and struggle against Perfection and his sense of Self.

I, Labyrinth is not just about The Pilgrim's journey to find himself. It is also the story of finding ourselves.
