Labyrinth New Location

Labyrinth New Location

Recently Sierra Hospice was able to move our Labyrinth from the Seneca Hospital grounds to the nearby Chester Cemetery. We are very excited to have the new location open to the public now.

A Labyrinth, for those that may not know, is a form of walking meditation. It is designed to be a bit of maze that allows the users mind to wander as you slower make your progress towards the center. Labyrinths have become an important part of the grieving process for many people, they are fantastic for clearing the mind and allowing you to walk through your thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a peaceful and calm setting.

The Sierra Hospice Labyrinth has been used for years by people who have sought to find a peaceful way to meditate and think while at the hospital grounds in Chester. Now we have moved it so that people can visit it when they visit those they have lost in the past and use it not just as a tool to help you but as a way to remember those that are now gone.

If you would like to know more about how to use the Labyrinth you can view the short video below in order to help you gain a better insight to its use. This, of course, is not quite the same style as the Labyrinth that Sierra Hospice provides, but the guidance in the video is helpful for understanding the process.

If you are interested in volunteering to help build up the landscaping or to donate to our Labyrinth to make it a more peaceful and relaxing place please get in touch with us by phone (530) 258-3412 or email

    • Hello! I am pleased that the labyrinth will be in use. Two questions:
      Will the brochures be available onsite for those wishing to use the labyrinth at its new site?
      Where are the plaques that were at the labyrinth at Seneca, indicating the donors?

      • Hi Ramona, some of the plaques and benches have been moved to the new location. There are others located around the Seneca hospital lot that will likely be moved as we figure out the landscaping for the new spot. I had not thought to upload the brochures to the website but that is a great idea! We will get that set up.
