Syncwalking the Labyrinth and Awakening at the Center of the Mandala?

I listened to an old '42 Minutes' podcast with the illustrator of the 'Sync Books 1 & 2', Justin Gray Morgan from 2011 and found it personally intriguing, as I've been reading about labyrinths, mandalas and mazes lately.
42 Minutes Podcast 12.06.11 Episode 8: Justin Morgan "Awakening At The Center Of The Mandala"
"The process is threefold: the entering, the centering, and the return.
Like life, we enter and exit through the same door, thus, the Labyrinth offers a strategy for finding balance within the flow of change.
Winter's Labyrinth
, a coming-of-age story told in four seasons, leads the reader into a circuitous adventure of self-discovery–finding at center, the very heart of being–and then returning back to the world, that transformation.

I wrote about walking a labyrinth in a public park not too far from where I live, that my local council built with some of my rate money -
Which Life Path to Take?
I'm reading the above book where the author states that you can get similar benefits mentally by "walking" a finger labyrinth.
You can even get apps for your phone for finger labyrinths to let your fingers do the walking:-)
 But if you go to the ABC 'Conversations' podcast site you can finger walk their logo for free;-)
I've invented all kinds of ways to walk the labyrinth and be with spirit, such as filling my glass of Johnnie Walker whiskey, drinking half while walking to the center to put my whiskey on the rocks to contemplate if the glass is half full or not, then drinking the rest on the way out;-)
By then I've usually ripped my clothes off and am swimming in the duck pond.
That duck looks like it's in the center of its own mandala
Try doing all that with a finger labyrinth;-)
Cheers and keep walking.
