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.
