The labyrinth is open to all. Veriditas is committed to respecting diversity and equality, and does not discriminate based on gender, race, creed, sexual orientation, age or personal disability.
Led by Veriditas Master Teacher,
the Reverend Dr. Kay Mutert.
Kay is a member of the Veriditas Council and a certified Veriditas Advanced Facilitator, now serving as Veriditas' USA Southeast Regional Representative. Her current business is called "DaySpring - a source of creative expression and renewal of spirit". She 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. Her work has included compositions and concerts for those affected by cancer and AIDS.
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.
Kay's strengths lie in the areas of group facilitation, understanding where persons may be and bridging the gaps of language or expression, so that they may be open to new experiences. Her approach is invitational. Her training and experience in creative arts, in movement, and in pastoral care, ministry and teacher education provide strength for her work with the labyrinth.
Kay holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education from Mississippi State University, graduating 1st in her class, Master of Arts in Vocal Music Education from University of South Florida, where she served as a teaching assistant, Doctor of Education in Secondary Music Education from University of Alabama, where she served as teaching assistant and then faculty/staff member, and Master of Divinity from Candler School of Theology, as a Woodruff Scholar. She has published a set of her musical compositions, Songs for the Journey, with Joe Elmore, among other vocal/choral/piano compositions. Her upcoming book At the end of the day tells the story of her first year of life and ministry in England.
