Wanted: reports on experiences with labyrinths

- download the document as *.txt

Out of personal interest I am starting a scientific scheme, with help
from Silke I would like to make a first step towards an evaluation of
A) individual labyrinthine experiences
B) professional usage of labyrinths
distinguishing between the experiences with the ancient 7 circuit labyrinth
and the Chartres labyrinth.
My intention is to collect and evaluate different labyrinthine usages and their effects.
Schedule of the project: start mid February 2001, end mid October 2001.
The results shall be presented to everybody via internet
www.begehbare-labyrinthe.de from mid December 2001.

Please send the completed questionnaires:

via fax to me:
from Europe 0043 149 25 760
from the USA 011 43 149 25 760
