"The Origins of the Labyrinth in the Paleolithic". Author Jodi Lorimer has spent over 12 years following an Ariadne's thread to its source, deep into the origins of human consciousness. The labyrinthine journey to the Otherworld was painted on the wall of caves by the first modern humans in Paleolithic Europe over 32,000 years ago. Ancient shamans mapped the route of the labyrinth revealing the complex minds and spirits of a sophisticated people. Their enigmatic art, arising from powerful experiences encountered in the weirdly beautiful environment of the caves still has a mysterious resonance for us today.
