    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

    "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." 

    -- The Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress

    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

    As labyrinth lovers, we all love labyrinth inspired gifts, and as labyrinth facilitators we are always looking for ways to deepen and support the labyrinth experience.

    In this webinar Catherine will share a number of creative ideas that can be both gifts from the heart at this holiday season or can be used facilitating a walk.

    In this one day myth and labyrinth workshop, we'll discover how the 1939 classic film The Wizard of Oz  mirrors the alchemical process of individuation and how the smash Broadway musical Wicked stands as a powerful illustration of how to befriend and integrate the hidden and unacknowledged parts of the psyche--what Jung called the Shadow.  Guided journaling, art activities and small group sharing will enhance your insights into your own quest for wholeness, culminating in a ritual of integration at a private outdoor labyrinth walk.

    This can serve as a qualifying workshop for those interested in going on to Veriditas Facilitator Training.

    Walking the Labyrinth is a spiritual practice gaining in recognition because it offers a sure path in uncertain times. The simple act of walking the Eleven Circuit Medieval Labyrinth, in community, allows our quieter, more reflective mind to come forward. It nurtures flowing self-reflection that, in our busy, challenging lives, we often do not have the ability to reach.

    Bring your journals and join us for our urban pilgrimage weekend. During our time at Grace Cathedral we will experience two labyrinth walks, one with live music at our open Candlelight Labyrinth Walk and the second on Saturday evening when we do the Harmony walk; using hand bells on the labyrinth.

    Veriditas Approved Qualifying Workshop.

    This four night, five day retreat is a time to pause and clarify the path you are on. Both the labyrinth and the SoulCollage® process can be used as tools of transformation to help us navigate the many challenges of life. They both give us ways to access our own inner resources and intuition. Using one of them alone will make a difference in your life, but used together they amplify and deepen each other because they are both languages of the soul. They enable us to access our inner world and deepen our understanding of ourselves as we journey on this path called life. Both processes allow us to create a sense of order out of the information that bombards us from all directions, and both encourage us to develop a higher level of awareness which enables us to thrive in the complex and ever-changing world in which we live.

    Activities during our time together include daily labyrinth walks, making SoulCollage® cards, spirit stones, and your own finger labyrinth.

    $950.00. Cost includes single accommodation, all meals, all art supplies and workshop.
