    Advanced Training is an advanced leadership and skill-building workshop for Veriditas Facilitators with at least one year of experience facilitating labyrinth activities.

    If you are a Certified Facilitator, you are on a select list for this invitation to attend the Veriditas Advanced Training. You have been certified, and we hope you have continued to work with the labyrinth over time. We deeply appreciate your work.

    One of our goals is to bring community around your work. Over the years facilitators have requested further training. We have responded by developing the Advanced Facilitator Training that covers:

    • The Art of Story Telling
    • Handling Media wisely
    • Enhancing Small Group Process Skills
    • Video taping your presentations for feedback
    • And much more.

    In the Spring of the year, the outer world beckons. It can be a time of innovative ideas, risk-taking adventures, and new seeds planted in the hope of the future. At this Pilgrimage we will come together to explore what it means to create beautiful and meaningful rituals and ceremonies on the labyrinth inspired by the rising spring. 

    Our Friday session will focus on the part ritual and ceremony plays in our lives and how to become comfortable and adept in the role of ceremonial leader.  On Friday evening, we will participate with Grace Cathedral's monthly Candlelight Labyrinth Walk, experiencing a simple and beautiful journey into sacred space with special exquisite music by French musician Catherine Braslavsky. 

    On Saturday, we will reflect upon our Friday evening experience to explore the elements of ritual creation. Lauren and Judith will take you behind the scenes of the choices they have made to create the ritual that concludes our program.

    Along with the general theme of exploring the role of ritual and ceremony in our lives, we will discuss the pragmatic elements of ritual creation including:
        •    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 and altar building


    Friday, March 8  1:30 pm - 7:30 pm

    Saturday, March 9  10:30- 7:30 pm  Including a late lunch break and a hosted reception following our private ritual on the Grace Cathedral labyrinth.

    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 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

    How to know if Facilitator Training is right for you?

    • Want to deepen your own labyrinth practice?
