the Dancing Woman story
Dancing Woman Labyrinth was created by Lisa Gidlow Moriarty (www.DancingWomanLabyrinth.com)
in response to her mother’s death to
cancer and her own cancer survival.
The Dancing Woman knows grief, she bears
the tears and celebrates the days of joy and survival. She is a symbol
of women’s strength
and compassion. Her uplifted arms reach out
in a supportive embrace her wild hair suggests freedom as well as the
hair may grow back after chemotherapy.
The entrances under her arms are reminiscent
of a friend’s support and protection. She dances
with wild abandon in release of pain.
