    Emily Simpson will talk about how building the Centennial Park Labyrinth in Sydney became a spiritual quest which transformed her life. From her initial vision of a labyrinth in that much-loved, Heritage listed park, to the daunting task of having to raise $500K from a community that knew nothing about labyrinths, to learning how to navigate a resistant bureaucratic maze and finally arriving at the splendid opening ceremony of a landmark labyrinth in the heart of Sydney.

    Walking Grace

    That first day,
    before I knew
    its path would become
    my way home,
    some part of me
    fell into the labyrinth.
    A thread of my cocoon
    must have snagged
    on the silence at its centre
    and begun, very gently,
    to unspool.

    Step by step,
    with every labyrinth that I walked
    it continued to unravel,
    years of carefully spun layers,
    leaving traces of presence in its wake.
    Today, I felt the tug
    of the final fibres being claimed,
    my life now woven deep
    into that meandering path.
    A new story emerging from the old
    with a shape and a voice
    and wings.

    by Emily Simpson


    BIO:

    Emily Simpson has been an actress, an entrepreneur and a poet. She founded 'Full Bloom' in 1995 to make beautiful underwear for pregnant women. Their philosophy was one of dynamic self-acceptance with a sizing guide of Small, Medium, Large, Gorgeous, Extra-Gorgeous and Goddess.

    During that time, she won several marketing awards including being a State Finalist for the Telstra Businesswoman of the Year Awards in 2000.  She sold the business in 2006 and has since self-published two books of poetry.  

    She first walked a labyrinth at the Grace Cathedral in 2009 and went on to become a Certified Veriditas Facilitator and Board Member  from 2011- 2013. She built Australia’s first sandstone labyrinth in Centennial Park, Sydney with funds donated by an inspired community. It was opened in September 2014 with the blessing of wisdom keepers from 11 different faith traditions. 

    She now manages the Sydney Labyrinth website and Facebook page, organizes facilitated group walks at the Centennial Park Labyrinth on the first Sunday of every month and is hosting a Veriditas Summer School in Sydney in January. She is also planning the first Australian Labyrinth Dreaming Festival for September 2017.

    In the time of the year, when the inner world beckons, we will come together to explore what it means to create beautiful and meaningful rituals and ceremonies on the labyrinth.  On Friday evening, we will participate in a ritual of inward turning, evoking the themes of the season:  advent, hibernation and cultivation of the inner light.  

    On Saturday we will reflect upon our Friday evening experience to explore the elements of ritual creation.  Lauren and Judith will give examples of successful rituals that they have incorporated in their labyrinth work. You will have the opportunity to create a ritual or ceremony to take back to your community.  We will use the labyrinth as a laboratory for our creativity.  

    Some of the topics we will cover include:

    • Choosing the theme—seasonal, special occasion, anniversary 
    • Designing the sequence and the importance of pacing
    • The use of storytelling 
    • Developing the voice to guide a ritual
    • Using your intuition to guide the flow of events
    • The use of music, poetry, scripture to enhance the experience 
    • The use of flowers, candles, sacred objects
