    Veriditas Approved Qualifying Workshop/Retreat

    Using the process of SoulCollage® and the labyrinth, this five-day retreat will give you the time and space to listen deeply to your Soul to discover who it is you came here to be - what in SoulCollage® is known as your “SoulEssence”.  The labyrinth, a three-dimensional archetype and metaphor for the journey of life, can take us to the center of our Self and give us a deeper understanding of who we are and what we came here to do.

    Both the labyrinth and SoulCollage® are gentle guides for times when you are on the threshold of transition or feel like you are standing on shifting sands. This time of unknowing and uncertainty can also be a time of rich possibility. In this retreat we will explore these growing edges of life, and listen for what our Soul wants for us.

    This retreat is a pre-qualifying workshop for the Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator Training which you can take with any Labyrinth Facilitator Trainer within two years of attending this pre-qualifying workshop if you would like to expand your work with the labyrinth.

    This retreat will be held at the St. Francis Springs Prayer Center in Stoneville, NC, which is about 30 miles north of Greensboro, NC. The closest airport is Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO).

    The Center is situate on 140 acres of peaceful wooded land and has a beautiful 11-circuit medieval pattern labyrinth, walking trails and stream.

    During our time together you will explore the Archetypes at play in your life through the SoulCollage® process. We will touch on the shadow, synchronicity and how the patterns and path of your story weaves into the Larger Story of the planet.

    You will be provided with a rich supply of images to create your SoulCollage® cards and have ample opportunity to create in the peace of the retreat center (you will have 24 hour access to our creative space). The labyrinth walks will offer an opportunity to integrate and expand your connection to the images which are speaking to you. The pace of the retreat will be slow so you can dive deep, and all activities will be optional. 

    Activities will include:

    • SoulCollage® card making time
    • Labyrinth walks
    • Using your cards in conjunction with a labyrinth walk
    • Inspired story-writing using imagery and the imagination
    • Creating SoulCollage® portal and doorway cards
    • Using your cards for guidance on the connection between your mythic story and the gifts you have to offer and the Larger Story
    • How to use your cards and the labyrinth to support you on your journey after the Retreat

    Each participant will receive:

    • A box with supplies to make your SoulCollage® cards
    • A book of quotations and journal prompts created for this retreat which guides you on a journey of finding meaning in the world
    • A 60 page book of full-color Portal, Doorway and Labyrinth images sized to use on your SoulCollage® cards
    • A pack of three different finger labyrinths
    • A pack of Catherine’s WordLight cards which you will turn into inspirations for writing
    • A labyrinth bag to hold all your goodies

    You can arrive at the Retreat Center any time after 3pm to check-in to your room, and we will officially start after dinner which is served at 6pm. We will end after lunch on the last day.

    The cost of $990 includes four nights accommodation in a single room with private bathroom, all meals (twelve in all) and all art supplies and instruction. If you would like to share a room with a friend the cost is $870.

    You can reserve your space by paying a deposit of $150 and advising whether you require a single room or shared room using the Contact Form. The balance is payable by August 27th, 2019. You are welcome to make part-payments towards the retreat at any time you wish. Click here to register

She is the author of Journaling the Labyrinth Path, a book of finger labyrinths, quotes and journal prompts inspiring you to find your unique work in the world, and Meeting Your Soul on the Labyrinth: SoulCollage® and the Labyrinth as Pathways for Transformation.

    Catherine uses the labyrinth, SoulCollage®, expressive arts, poetry and mindfulness as pathways for self-discovery and as ways of uncovering meaning and purpose in life.

    In today’s chaotic world, each and every one of us have things happening in our lives, a permanent transition path, a hurricane coming thru, a loss… with the hope of rainbows and new dawns coming.

    Gathering in this resilient city of Houston and building on John O’Donohue’s poem “Fluent”, we will look at how our lives – both personal, communal and global -  call for flexibility, resilience, refocus, and how spiritual practices can strengthen us for these times. The labyrinth offers one such practice, for individuals, for communities. We will use walking, music and reflection in the day.

    Join us for a Full Moon Labyrinth walk under the light of December's Cold Moon. We will walk the sacred circuit of the labyrinth by candlelight during this time of greatest darkness, as we prepare for the winter solstice and the return of the light. This will be a time to turn inwards, in community, and enjoy quiet reflection during this often busy season.

    There is no cost for this hour-long event, but donations are gratefully accepted. First time walkers are welcome. Though there is no cost, pre-registration online is required. 

    Note: walks will be held at dusk; please bring a flashlight and warm layers. The labyrinth is up an unpaved road; appropriate footwear is recommended. Rain cancels.

    The Labyrinth as an Interspiritual Path: 

    One River Many Streams

    We are living in an unfolding spiritual landscape.  East and West are converging, our world is shrinking. Some of us are no longer at home in the spiritual/religious traditions in which we grew up.  We find that our spiritual streams have run dry.  We yearn for more, but what might that 'more' be?  In this workshop, we will do some thoughtful and respectful meandering along the labyrinth's interspiritual path together, drinking in some of the contemplative practices, stories and rituals from other spiritual traditions around the globe.  We will have conversations on our way to the center where all streams merge into One River, the Living Source of all our relations.  Finally, we will return, walking the same path, nourished by our journey.  Wherever you are on your path, even if you find yourself sitting on the River's bank, unsure and observing, you are welcome. 

    A one day workshop led by Veriditas Faculty Kathe Rhinesmith and Anne Bonney.

    Save the Date for an extraordinary experience with Veriditas in Chartres, France.

    This Pilgrimage will be led by Lauren Artress. Watch for more details to come soon.

    The Chartres Experience

    What better place to feel nurtured 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.

    Join us in this ancient place of refuge and renewal!

    The goal of Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator Training is to prepare people to introduce others to the labyrinth in an articulate, professional and effective way.The training addresses meditative walking in a variety of settings, with a variety of different populations. 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 practicethroughout 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.

    Meeting Mary - A Pilgrimage to the Heart of the Sacred Feminine

    Throughout the ages, Chartres has been home to the Sacred Feminine.  Whether it be the ancient goddess venerated at the well, the vestiges of Roman worship of the goddess Isis or the uninterrupted adoration of Mother Mary through the centuries of Christian worship, pilgrims always come to soak in the beauty of the perennial Feminine presence.  These days with our growing appreciation of Mary Magdelene, Chartres offers us glimpses into her presence in our world.

    Led by Judith Tripp - Judith has been offering this material in her Meeting Mary at Chartres workshops since 2009. Her deep Marian devotion has been nurtured in her yearly pilgrimages to Chartres since 1999.  Her background as a transpersonal psychotherapist, musician, and student of the Sacred Feminine brings a unique combination of personal insight, historical knowledge and musical inspiration to her work.

    Sacred: Reawakening to Earth & Soul

    Drawing on the lost wisdom of the Celtic world, John Philip Newell speaks it afresh into the heart of this moment in time, addressing the most critical issues facing humanity today.  He invites us to reawaken to what we most deeply know, the sacredness of the earth and the human soul.

    Led by John Philip Newell, internationally acclaimed Celtic teacher from Edinburgh, is the celebrated author of Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality.  He is the founder of the School of Celtic Consciousness and one of the most prominent Christian teachers of spirituality in the Western world.  He has authored over 15 books, including Christ of the Celts, Praying with the Earth, A New Harmony, and his most recent visionary title The Rebirthing of God:  Christianity's Struggle for New Beginnings.  www.heartbeatjourney.org
