    Walking the Labyrinth orders chaos, both in the inner world as well as the outer. It quiets the mind and once it is quiet, we have choices over how we direct our thoughts. We can choose to reflect deeply, we can focus it on prayer, and we can look at the uncertainty we feel about our personal circumstances or the challenge of the times we live in. We will work to strengthen our commitments, deepen our reflective nature and gain perspective on where we are ‘on the Path".

    Join Lauren Artress to learn about the labyrinth and how to apply walking it to our lives.

    "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
