In the Spring of the year, the outer world beckons. It can be a time of innovative ideas, risk-taking adventures, and new seeds planted in the hope of the future. At this Pilgrimage we will come together to explore what is means to create beautiful and meaning rituals and ceremonies on the labyrinth. On Friday evening, we will participate in a ritual turning from the inner world into the outer; from Winter to Spring. We will evoke themes of the season: planting seeds, flowering, and reflection on what we choose to put into this world.

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 I 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


Friday, March 8  1:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Saturday, March 9  1:30 - 7:30 pm
