    "The labyrinth is a spiritual tool that has many applications in various settings. 
    It reduces stress, quiets the mind and opens the heart. It is a walking meditation, a path of prayer, and a blue-print where psyche meets Spirit."

It is focused primarily on the Eleven Circuit Medieval Labyrinth but is inclusive of all forms.

    Walking the labyrinth is being embraced as a spiritual practice throughout the Western world mostly because of Veriditas trained facilitators. The Veriditas Facilitator Training -- which began in 1997 -- remains the most rigorous and comprehensive training offered

    • Want to deepen your own labyrinth practice?
    • Want the tools and guidance that will enable you to bring the labyrinth to your community?

    Workshop: The Labyrinth's Role in Bridge Building & Reconciliation

    Led by Veriditas Master Teacher Rev. Dr. Kay Mutert

    What does it mean to draw the circle wide in your community, taking steps toward those considered “other” and exploring the building of relationships through the common-ground spiritual practice of the labyrinth?

    Led by Veriditas Master Teacher Rev. Dr. Kay Mutert, this workshop will focus on the ways the labyrinth has a bridge building and reconciling role in our communities - many of which reflect division, polarity and a lack of understanding of one another. We’ll explore a variety of communities and groups in which the labyrinth plays an important role in building and sustaining healthy community. The workshop will include introduction to the labyrinth, small group discussion, creative reflection, and  labyrinth walking. This can be taken as a stand-alone day for those already trained, and also serves as a qualifying workshop for those who wish to become trained Veriditas labyrinth facilitators.


    Monday August 13 to Tuesday August 14th, 9 am to 5 pm both days

    The Middle Ages were truly both the best and worst of times: amidst war and the horror of crusades arose astonishing beauty and wisdom. From the ashes of catastrophe,  Chartres Cathedral emerged as a beacon of light and hope, drawing together the wisdom of many different traditions and re-igniting the flame of inspiration from the Ancient Greek world.Morning seminars include the following topics:  Pilgrimage and the Medieval Imagination; Chartres Mystery School and Pythagoras; Black Madonnas and Alchemy and the Muses and Mystics of Medieval Times.  In our pilgrimage with cultural historian, musician and Veriditas Faculty Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D, we will explore this journey of renewal and hope which has much to say to us about our own times, encountering fascinating and paradoxical figures, stunning art and architectural symbolism and  profoundly moving music.

    Accommodation at the Maison St. Yves is now available. Click here to book your room.

    Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D is lecturer at the Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, Dominican University and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the Music Historian in Residence for the Santa Rosa Symphony.  Her PhD dissertation was "Passion and Paradox: The Myths of Mary Magdalene in Music, Art and Culture". She has lectured on Mary Magdalene for UC Berkeley, the Graduate Theological Union, the San Francisco Opera, Oxford University in England, the New York Open Center Esoteric Quest in Carcassonne, France, the Assisi Institute of Depth Psychology in Italy and for churches and Jung Institutes across the country. Dr. Asbo leads sacred pilgrimages to Europe, including  In the Footsteps of Mary Magdalene, a yearly journey to Provence. Her pioneering work has been hailed for its integration of head and heart, a "brilliant combination of impeccable scholarship and pure passion". You can learn more about her at www.kayleenasbo.com

    Our imagination is alive with every breath we take, whether waking or sleeping. Our human imagination is wedded to the Divine and walking the labyrinth can open our heart, mind and spirit to astounding experiences. It is the Holy Fool who sees this and nurtures this connection for guidance and wisdom.

    Collected from earlier myths around the same time labyrinths were put into the great Cathedrals of Europe, The Grail Legend will serve as the reflective mirror for our experience.  The journey of Parsifal, that pure-hearted fool who ventures from a naïve and unconscious state into being conscious has much to teach us about seeking and creating a purposeful life.

    What better place to nurture wisdom than the sacred space of Chartres Cathedral. We begin with a reception to meet each other followed by an opening ritual and  orientation to the program. Then each day, there is a morning seminar, a small processing group, and an experience of what Chartres has to offer. Tuesday evening holds a unique Pilgrim's Walk through the Crypt of Chartres Cathedral, on Wednesday, an orientation to the labyrinth and a once in a life-time candlelit labyrinth walk with medieval music on the Chartres Labyrinth, on Thursday a tour of the Cathedral itself, and a closing celebratory dinner on Friday.

    Imagine having a source in your congregation life for sharing celebrations and dedications, for walking together in ritual and ceremony, space for personal centering and meditation, blessing and gratitude. A place where all are welcome.

    The labyrinth is an ancient pattern offering a space and time for individuals and groups to experience a way of centering and reflection. In the workshop, we will hear a brief story of the labyrinth's history, then  move into the day's experiences on the labyrinth. In a world where it is too easy to forget the power of living in blessing, too easy to fill the spaces with business, the labyrinth invites us to take time to remember, to let go. We will conclude the day with a labyrinth walk.

    This workshop serves as a qualifying workshop for the two-day Veriditas Facilitator training, an intensive training time for those who want further in-depth experience and knowledge.

    The Reverend Dr. Kay Mutert

    Veriditas, Master Teacher

    The Reverend Dr. Kay Mutert has been working as a Master Teacher with the Veriditas Worldwide Labyrinth Organization since 2008, offering labyrinth workshops in awakening new creative energy, community building, and spiritual formation. Her Master Teacher responsibilities include training new facilitators and renewal training for those trained in past years. She works with organizations to establish labyrinth communities, to hear the hopes of a setting and translate that into an ongoing vision. In her workshops and training she holds the space for participants to discover and develop their own gifts and skills, and to build community.

    As a part of the Veriditas faculty, Kay has been a member of the Veriditas Council, Southeastern USA regional representative, and a musician. When she left her local church ministry Kay created "DaySpring - a source of creative expression and renewal of spirit", as a conduit to work with an increasingly larger circle of community. Through her labyrinth work, she uses her experience as musician, minister, teacher and spiritual accompanist with groups and individuals from diverse arenas of life, inviting them to discover the possibilities of the labyrinth to experience a reconnection with the sacredness of life, to find language for their setting. Kay's work helps others find ways for renewal of mind, body, spirit and creative energy, through retreats, workshops and sacred events.

    As a pastor, Kay served congregations in the United Methodist Church and the British Methodist Church, a local ecumenical partnership in England, and an interim ministry with the Presbyterian Church USA. Before that she worked as a music educator/church musician in Florida and Alabama. She is a conductor, composer and pianist, incorporating her music into her events. Her work has included compositions and concerts for those affected by cancer and AIDS, connected with her own journey.

    Kay has serves as relief musician and program presenter at Iona Abbey in Iona Scotland, and is a past associate of the international ecumenical Iona Community based there. Building her interest in helping others discover the wealth of meaning for today's world in the ancient Celtic spiritual story, she is a guest presenter and retreat leader, leads pilgrimages to Iona and other sites, has assisted in Chartress pilgrimages. She offers workshops and worship experiences utilizing the resources of Ions, Taize and global music.

    Kay believes the ancient archetype of the labyrinth serves as a strong source of possibility for today's world, in meditation, reconciliation, peace-making, for young and old, for cross-cultures, creativity and healing, for community and personal use. Through her experience in a variety of settings, she honors the non-verbal expression of meaning as felt in the labyrinth, through sound and silence, movement and stillness.

    Kay holds a BS from Mississippi State University, MA from University of South Florida, EdD from University of Alabama and MDIV from Chandler School of Theology. Her published works include a set of her musical compositions - Songs for the Journey, with texts by Reverend Joe Elmore and artwork by Dan Roundtree; a piano CD by Karen Krekeberg - The Joy of Two; along with other miscellaneous creations. Her book Seasons of Change is a memoir of her Jubilee year's tradition into pastoral ministry while living in the Midlands of England. She is a contributor to the recently published book Sacred Habits: the Rise of the Creative Clergy, Chad R. Abbott, Editor.

    "I encourage anyone interested in becoming a labyrinth facilitator to add this to their calendat! I met Kay Mutert on a spiritual pilgrimage to Iona, Scotland several years ago. She is a wonderful teacher, musician, minister and labyrinth facilitator...and I might add 'friend'!"

    As you journey these days through a cacophony of news, rapidly changing cycles of information and pulls on your time, let yourself take a pause. Spend a day learning to deepen your sense of living in the present moment using the labyrinth as a tool. The practice of presence helps one stay mindful of that which is right in front of you. Take a day to listen to your inner ear, practice feeling your way through instead of simply reacting to the events of your life, quiet your minds and walk; noticing, being and attending to where you are in the present moment.

    The labyrinth can be a place to open up to the creative muse. Walking the labyrinth enables our right brain which is the creative, intuitive side of our brain, to open, explore and connect to the imagination, as the left part of the brain focuses on following the labyrinth path.

    In this two-day workshop, we will explore walking the labyrinth to deepen our creativity, and integrate and deepen our experience of the spiral path through a number of creative practices which will include making labyrinth intention boxes, a set of spirit stones, and making SoulCollage® cards which incorporate labyrinthine energy.

    Workshop fee: $225.00

    "The labyrinth is a spiritual tool that has many applications in various settings. 
    It reduces stress, quiets the mind and opens the heart. It is a walking meditation, a path of prayer, and a blue-print where psyche meets Spirit."
