Sandra Wasko-Flood Bio 2020
Artist, Poet, Teacher, and Founder-President of Living Labyrinths for Peace, Inc. (2005), Sandra Wasko-Flood has a permanent residence in the mountainous pine forest of Angel Fire, New Mexico near Taos. She received a BA in English from UCLA (1965) and a Secondary Teaching Credential from California State College in Los Angeles (1966). A printmaking artist, with works in many public and private collections, she chose luminaries with which to study at the University of California, Los Angeles (1966); in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, (1970-73); the University of Wisconsin, Madison, (1977-78); and at the University of NM, Taos (2009-20). Keith Howard introduced her to new safe etching methods which she has been using in her art work and teaching ever since.
A visionary leader, she founded the Washington DC Women’s Arts Center (1978), the Washington Printmakers Gallery (1986), and the Art Spirit Group, which relates art to spirituality (1985). An experience in the Great Kiva of Chaco Canyon, NM (1991) led her to construct “Dance of the Labyrinth,” composed of computer programmed light box images on which to walk (1994).
Walking this technology labyrinth, new to the history of art, led her to do following: Help found the international Labyrinth Society (TLS) (1998); Direct its first project: a labyrinth walking demonstration for inner peace on the east lawn of the U.S. Capitol (2000); Give “Labyrinths for Creativity and Peace Workshops” through a grant from the Washington Performing Arts Center, in local schools(2002-2018). She is changing the school system because labyrinths relate to all subjects, the Harvard Educational Psychologist, Howard Gardner’s Nine Intelligences; Direct, Labyrinth Sacred Spaces events for the town of Taos, NM (2010); Co-sponsor, TLS Annual Gathering (2011); Sponsor, Mayan Ac Tah’s Orion World Peace Labyrinth at Vietnam Memorial, DC; and likewise with Virginia LoneSky ThD, of Peaceful Endeavours. at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Angel Fire, NM (2013); Directed World Labyrinth Day Program at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Hospital (2014); New Door Creative Art Gallery, ;Labyrinth Society Gathering, Bainbridge, Washington, presented: “Co-Creating Peace with Technology and Nature; (2017)” Unity Church in Sedona, Arizona, presented plans for creating a permanent Luminous Labyrinth Center for Peace (2019).
This Center for Peace, is based on her visionary experience she had in Chaco National Historical Park, New Mexico. In 1991,when she sat in the Great Kiva, Casa Riconada, she saw peoples of all races, nationalities, and cultures ascend another spiral under a space dome to the skies. A tour director told her there was an underground spiral, one in the kiva used for civic ceremonies, the coming together of the tribes, so to speak. And, in the 1950’s, there were many sightings of UFO’s there.
This Luminous Labyrinth for Peace Center will be built in Sedona, Arizona. People may choose what labyrinth light-up design they want to walk, surround panoramic images of where they want to walk, and overhead images in the dome, for birthdays, marriages, funerals, conflict resolution workshops.
Sandra’s Vision and Mission are to give her gifts of Art, Poetry and Labyrinth Peace Work to the World. Her recent publications are The Labyrinth Path to Light and Peace: Art and Poetry by Sandra Wasko-Flood;
Universal Journey: A Fine Art Retrospective; Art/Technology Labyrinths of Light; Co-Creating Peace with Technology and Nature; Labyrinths in the Schools for Creativity and Peace. Works in progress are the Labyrinth Instructors Handbook, which will have contributors to each subject or those Howard Gardner’s Nine Intelligences. And I am working on a film: Awakening to Spirit: Inner Peace to World Peace.

When my scientist husband was in college, he and his friends, formed a Pig Theory. Human Beings are not only physically like pigs, but psychologically as well. Everyone was a porker with traits of selfishness, wanting too many things. All the works in the human language could be reduced to three: Oink, Grunt and Squeal.
Robert Frost Poem: "I took the road less traveled by and that made all the difference.
William Shakespeare: "Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds.
William Shakespeare:
Cowards die many times before their deaths.
The valiant only taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders, it seems to me most strange
That men should fear,
Seeing that death,
A necessary end,
Will come when it will come.
