Led by Veriditas Master Teacher, the Reverend Dr. Kay Mutert ...
Kay uses her experience as musician, minister, and teacher in working with groups and individuals from all arenas of life, inviting them to discover the possibilities of the labyrinth in the journey to experience a reconnection with the sacredness of life. She has worked with labyrinths for the past 12 years. Kay's focus is on helping others find ways for renewal of mind, body, spirit and creative energy, through retreats, workshops and sacred events. Kay served congregations in the United Methodist Church and the British Methodist Church. Before that she worked as a music educator and musician in Florida and Alabama. She is a conductor, composer and pianist, wanting to let her love for the spirit of music and movement speak to the hearts of others.
Kay has served as musician and program presenter at Iona Abbey, and has been an associate of the international ecumenical Iona Community based in Scotland. She offers workshops and worship experiences utilizing the resources of Iona, 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, for community and personal use. Through her experience in the a variety of settings, Kay works to honor the non-verbal expression of meaning, as felt in the labyrinth, through movement, and through visual and musical expressions.
