The 110 stations of the conscience, IN THE LABYRINTH  of the evolutionary path.



Our way through Life is an intricate Labyrinth  that  leads us from experience to experience and from lesson to lesson, within the great adventure of learning to be the being.

The Question is, either to keep on repeating until death  the role of the greedy monkey that we already know how to play so well …

…or to try   the effort of becoming the universal man or woman first, and afterwards,the cosmic human being that all the good seeds of our kind carry inside.


This game is a guide for the hardy  wayfarers of the Great Path.
