    • Thomas the Apostle Retreat Center, 34 Thomas the Apostle Road, Cody, Wyoming

    A retreat of renewal and reflection, a time in this beautiful Thomas the Apostle Center setting to reconnect with your heart song and to experience the labyrinth. Together we move into the natural rhythms of the day, using music and journaling, silence and space, shared reflections. With the sound of music to touch our spirit and the way of the labyrinth to offer a path of reflection, there is opportunity for the quiet of solitude, the sharing of community, and the gift of labyrinth walks. Kay brings her music leadership, the stories of the labyrinth, and the shaping of sacred space to these days.


    Also serves as qualifying workshop for Veriditas Facilitator Training to follow.

    The Chartres Cathedral has served as a stunning inspirational religious site for millions over the centuries. As a pilgrim in Chartres, you will be gently guided by Jill as she reveals the beauty and potential of the cathedral to connect you with the nurturing love of the Divine. Daily sessions with integrated visual presentations using images taken at the cathedral, rituals, quiet reflection, and prayer. You will be shown a pathway of spiritual revitalization that should you choose to explore it, will help you to move more fully into service wherever your heart is leading.


    Titles of Daily Sessions: 

    • Pilgrimage and the Chartres Cathedral: Ancient Traditions, Modern Journeys
    • The Chartres Cathedral Labyrinth in Context: History, Placement, and Practice
    • Meeting Notre Dame (Mary) in the Chartres Cathedral
    • Beyond Chartres: Continuing the Pilgrimage


    The Rev. Jill Kimberly Hartwell Geoffrion, Ph.D. has been praying in the Chartres Cathedral since 1978. Jill now spends 2-3 months in Chartres each year studying and photographing the cathedral daily. She guides individuals and groups using all the artistic expressions of faith found in the cathedral (architecture, stained glass, sculpture, etc.) as springboards for the spiritual growth of those visiting. As a photographer, Jill seeks to express the potential of this UNESCO world heritage site to address the needs of our troubled world. When not in Chartres, Jill serves as an artist and minister through Faith, Hope and Love Global Ministries, a non-profit that teaches, inspires and encourages Christian leaders around the globe. She gratefully installs labyrinths and offers labyrinth programming on four continents. Two of Jill’s seven books on labyrinth prayer, Praying the Labyrinth and Praying the Chartres Labyrinth focus on the pilgrimage experience in the Chartres Cathedral. (See: jillgeoffrion.com; throughjillseyes.wordpress.com; fhlglobal.org)


    Recommended Reading for the Pilgrimage: 


    Praying the Labyrinth and Praying the Chartres Labyrinth. Also of interest are Jill's other books Living the Labyrinth, Pondering the Labyrinth, The Labyrinth and Song of Songs, The Labyrinth and the Enneagram, and Christian Prayer and Labyrinths (all published by Pilgrim Press).


    Accommodation at the Maison St. Yves where the program will be held is now available. Click here to book.

    It is hard to stay focused in the present. Sometimes the pull of the past and the uncertainty of the future exert a surprising strength. Walking the labyrinth invites us into stillness and
    attentiveness to the present moment in which our soul may find peace, healing, joy and gratitude. 

    There will be opportunity for journaling, small group sharing
    and simple art work as well as chance to walk a labyrinth
    alone with others.

    The Workshop will begin at 9.30am with registration and
    finish at 4.00pm.

    Registration Fee
    The registration fee is $112.00 (£70.00 / early bird rate £60.00
    before June 1st 2014)This includes lunch and refreshments during the workshop.

    The workshop is open to all, but particularly serves as the
    pre-qualifying workshop for the labyrinth facilitator training
    weekend immediately following the end of the day workshop.
    It will be limited to 24 people.

    "We lose our way to find our way", Lauren Artress is fond of saying. Perhaps no better example of this can be found than the great Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, whose own midlife descent and unravelling sowed the seeds for profound transformation. During his midlife descent, he opened his intuitive life through drawing, painting and dialoguing with his imagination; the results eventually coalesced to become the foundations of Depth Psychology. Join cultural historian and mythologist Kayleen Asbo for a passionate look at the themes of stepping into mystery, turning towards the unknown and listening for the inner voice of the depths using both the labyrinth and the Red Book of Carl Jung as guides.

    The Women’s Dream Quest offers women the rare opportunity to spend the night in the sacred space of Grace Cathedral.


    We gather together for our yearly autumn Quest to dream for the Earth. We will listen to her wisdom and her need. Our time together in the sacred circle of women will be focused on how we can be her voice, how we can become Mothers of the World.

    Come, wake up with us in Grace!

    Join Lauren Artress and Catherine Anderson to learn more about the SoulCollage® process and how it can be used with the labyrinth. SoulCollage® uses images as a way to access our unconscious and our inner wisdom, and is a tool for integration after a labyrinth walk. The process allows participants to stay in their intuitive right brain as they express their experience by choosing images torn from magazines and collaging these on a card. No artistic skills are required for the process. Once the card is complete, we work mindfully with the images in a way similar to that of working with a dream. This can be a powerful and meaningful experience as what is hidden bubbles up from within our depths.

    We are living in a “hinge” time; a time when things are changing so quickly that every institution is struggling to keep up, including traditional religious institutions. Many of us continue to attend but feel restless and undernourished so we augment our spiritual growth through a variety of avenues. Others of us have given up all together and have decided to go our own way spiritually. Either way, this puts much responsibility on each of us to “do our own work” through a chosen spiritual practice. Walking the labyrinth is a practice gaining international recognition for its ability to help us reflect, pray, release, address psycho-spiritual issues and find perspective.

    This lecture will address the times we live in, finding a spiritual practice and specific applications that can be used with the labyrinth. We will address forgiveness, healing of memories, and ritual uses for gratitude and grief. Please join us.

    The Labyrinth is a place where mind/body and spirit integration can occur, but this process is different within each of us. How much are we "embodied"? How much does our mind run things; chattering away because it is afraid of silence? What nourishes your spirit? Inspires you and strengthens you along the path?

    This workshop contains lecture and discussion, small group processes and walking the Eleven Circuit Medieval Labyrinth to move us toward integration. Each participant will be invited to focus through journaling on what longs to be explored and integrated into our life's path.

    Lauren Artress presents the fascinating history of the labyrinth and the story of how she came to work with the labyrinth. 

    The labyrinth, a spiral pathway, can be symbolic of our path in life. It is a way to nourish our inner world. It is not a maze, designed to confuse us, but a flowing path inviting a mystical experience.

    Renew your call to labyrinth work... Return to the Land of your Soul...Rejoice in our community...Recommit to the work of Veriditas


    The Veriditas Board of Directors is convening the Third Annual Veriditas Community Gathering.

    We may be new to the labyrinth, or it may have been years since our first transforming walk. Either way, many of us feel the call to be part of the labyrinth community. To connect in a soul-nourishing circle of like-minded and like-hearted folk.

    We invite you to answer the call -- to join our circle at the Veriditas Community Gathering. We’re putting together an event you won’t want to miss!

    The Gathering will unfold over a two day period starting at 2:00 pm on Friday and ending Saturday.

    Join us for a retreat to "rolling hills of California" - spend two nights in a single room enjoying fresh, organic California cuisine with like-minded labyrinth lovers in community - or stay off campus and sign up for the two days of dinners and lunch.
