    Veriditas is coming home for the weekend! Grace Cathedral is where it all started twenty years ago. We’ve expanded our reach and moved our base, but it seems appropriate to return to our birthplace to celebrate the past two decades. We’ll have an opportunity to honor our founder, the Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress, hear tales of the past — some tall, some small — and discover the many activities and programs that are going on today. We’ll also have time to dream of our future community.

    What better way for all of us to stay connected? We really hope you will join us to see old friends and make new ones, as we celebrate our past, honor our present, and dream our future.

    The beautiful little isle of Iona, Scotland, known as a place of pilgrimage for seekers over the centuries, provides the setting for a modern day pilgrimage for reflection, meditation and renewal of spirit.

    Join us in a place and time to reflect on the lives of early Celtic figures in a space of historical mystery and meaning in the natural rhythms of day and night, as each participant reflects on our own journeys, our connections with land, mystery and meaning. We need time-out and time-in sacred space, for the healing formation of living in today's world. We will share chant and silence, reflection and renewal, walks and talks in the ancient paths and shores of Iona.

    Together we share the journey of labyrinth to enfold our time here: One day pilgrimage walk to south shore stone labyrinth on Columba's bay, site of Columba's first step on Iona. We will also create our own creation of temporary seaweed labyrinth on north shore, to walk then be taken back into the sea. Each are reminders of our journey of life in this liminal setting of history.

    Join us for this journey to a thin place, that you might revisit the turns of your own life and your place in the calling of the world today.

    As it takes a half day to travel within Scotland to Iona, it is recommended that you plan to arrive in Iona on Sunday afternoon. Our opening session will be on Sunday evening.

    Will be followed by Veriditas Facilitator Training on August 28, and 29. Pre-registration now open.

    Accommodation and Meals are an additional charge.
    Currently, rooms at the Argyll Hotel where the program will be held are fully booked. Below are some alternative options for housing:

    Going Deeper into the Labyrinth


    In addition to the beautiful path of peace, prayer and pilgrimage, Eve sees the labyrinth as a blueprint of us as human beings. We all have a sacred soul center surrounded by the seeming chaos of the twists and turns of the ego mind. The labyrinth is the perfect place to practice what she calls Six Essential Life Skills for recalibrating with our souls, and thus finding SOUL-utions to life's challenges.


    For almost 20 years, Eve has led monthly full moon labyrinth walks on Maui. She performs labyrinth weddings, utilizes the labyrinth with retreat groups, leads labyrinth walks with teens in a conference setting and has two labyrinths open to the public daily. She is the author of "Way of the Winding Path: A Map for the Labyrinth of Life" and facilitates the labyrinth for creating healthier relationships—with others, ourselves and with Spirit.

    This particular weekend is a transitional time in the calendar recognized throughout many traditions. It is a significant weekend to come together, taking our place as a part of the generations gone before in the great celebration of saints, and looking to our place in the transitions of life into the future.  It is a time of honoring the Christian practice of All-Saints Day, the Hispanic community's traditional Day of the Dead, the Celtic tradition's time of Samhain, and the need for all to remember and renew.  The weekend events will include a Thursday lecture on the history of the labyrinth, a Saturday workshop, and a Sunday evensong and candlelight labyrinth walk.


    The Saturday workshop focuses on the theme of compassion, memory, love and healing.The labyrinth offers a space to acknowledge our place in our generational life journey. As we take our place in the deep historical labyrinth presence on this earth, we join the many for whom walking the labyrinth offers a place for healing, hope, connection and vision. The Saturday workshop will include a labyrinth walk, art expression, and reflection time.

    • Alla Arriba Retreat Center, La Falda, Argentina
    • 10

    Come join us for a 7 day pilgrimage in beautiful La Falda, Argentina, home of the first Legacy Labyrinth.  We will create a sacred circle to hold our dreams, visions and inner explorations.   After mornings of meditation, yoga and circle, we will spend the afternoons exploring the beauty of the  multi layered Argentine culture.  We will begin our journey with a Temescal, a Andean version of the sweat lodge and prepare ourselves to journey up Uritorco, a mountain sacred to the indigenous people of the region.  We will also sample Tango and the amenities of the beautiful retreat center, Alla Arribe.   On Saturday, we will join with local women in a day long Women's Dream Quest.


    This pilgrimage is offered by Judith Tripp, MA, MFT, transpersonal psychotherapist, certified Veriditas labyrinth facilitator, musician and retreat leader.  She is a member of the Veriditas faculty, leader of the Women's Dream Quest and offers Pilgrimages to Avalon.  She has brought her work on the Sacred Feminine  to venues all around the world.  


    Judith was part of the Veriditas crew who built the La Falda labyrinth in the town square  a short walk from the retreat center.  She fell in love with the town, the staff of Alla Arribe and the beauty of the culture .  She was moved to create pilgrimage like the ones she offers each year in England.

    • Alla Arriba Retreat Center, La Falda, Argentina
    • 10



    In a little town called La Falda, Argentina, there is retreat center called Alla Arriba dedicated to supporting people seeking to know the truth of their personal and spiritual path. Veriditas first came to know of La Falda when we were invited to come build a Legacy Labyrinth in the town square.  This extraordinary experience opened up a new connection for Veriditas and a very special place for gatherings and retreats.


    In March of 2015, a men’s retreat will be held for 10 men to explore making the last half of their lives meaningful and filled with purpose. Using the labyrinth as a template for our work, men will have a chance to talk about what life has meant, how meaning has changed with time and when looking ahead how to define and take charge of our path for the second half of life.


    The experience will include discussion with one another of what life has been up to this time. We will explore what it means to construct new directions based on the wisdom our years have  taught us. These explorations will be personal and interpersonal, and we will use reading materials to stimulate thought.  We will walk the labyrinth at the Retreat Center as well as the one built in the town square. There will be time to hike and explore the land. There will be opportunities to participate in a Temazcal Ceremony (the Argentine equivalent to a sweat lodge).  We will also be treated to a classic Argentine Asado (a very wonderful Argentine Barbeque) and be entertained with live authentic music of the culture.  Massage and other body work will be available for an additional cost. 


    Led by seasoned therapist and Veriditas trained labyrinth facilitator, Milton Woolley, MFT, the retreat is designed as one of self-discovery and self-exploration in a unique and beautiful place in the “skirt” of the Andes.


    **************************************************************************
    Milton Woolley, Marriage, Family Therapist has been working with youth, couples and individuals for 40 years. He has directed a youthful offender’s diversion clinic for 8 years in the beginning of his career and been in private practice for 32 years a good portion of which was dedicated to work with men’s issues. As he approaches his 71st year of life he has developed a keen interest in the lack of meaningful rites of passage for men over 50 years of age in our culture. There is a deep need to define purpose, forms of creativity and meaning in these later years.
