Abstract

The symbolic figure of the maze proves to be an extremely pregnant mythic-symbolic complex of the mythical and educational imaginary. In this article the author establishes a dialogue with authors who have studied the symbolic and construction of such maze and questions the educational implications that derive from the symbolic figure of this symbolic maze. Taking the labyrinth as an emblem of education understood as spiritual transmutation, he finds that all initiatory education must follow the teachings that derive from it and create conditions for the initiate to enter within, to discover himself/herself and to understand the meaning of its depth. It is a experiential process, a process of discovery and learning rather than of teaching, where the protagonist is the learner himself.
