       Denny Dyke formally launched Circles in the Sand in 2015 as a way of share walking the path of the labyrinths that he creates at Face Rock Viewpoint in Bandon, Oregon.  Today the Circles Draw team consists of Denny Dyke, Christine Moehring, Bethe Patrick, Jacque Ferreira and James Ferreira and, along with team Ambassadors and volunteer groomers, continue to make walkable ephemeral art in the form of Dreamfield labyrinths.  Circles in the Sand is now on peoples’ bucket list and vacations are being planned around events.


       The beach, at low tide, leaves a blank canvas of sand for the Draw team to create the Dreamfield.  Each Dreamfield has a unique pattern which, unlike a maze, has a single path that meanders and spirals throughout the pattern having no wrong turns or dead ends.  The walk experience is further enhanced by artistic designs created along the path and accented by driftwood and shell patterns.  Before their walk, all participants are given a polished stone (“Dream Stones”) to remember their labyrinth experience. Tens of thousands of pairs of feet have walked these sandy paths and there are 40 public draws scheduled for 2020 - most occurring between May and August.  Participants travel from all over the United States and the world to experience the beauty and grace of Circles in the Sand.  These are free public events and everyone is welcome to participate in the magic of a Dreamfield.  Of course, the path is child and pet friendly.


       The public work of Circles in the Sand is funded by sponsors and individual donors like you whose continued support is essential in allowing us to continue our efforts to share this experience with everyone.  We have raised $10,000 so far toward our goal of $50,000, and are reaching out to you to consider making a donation to our project.
