Labyrinth Summer School Qualifying Workshop - A one-day workshop for anyone interested in beginning or renewing their connection to the labyrinth.
The Labyrinth as a Welcoming Path
How does the labyrinth serve to create and sustain community? What will you offer from your life and experience that may deepen the experience of walking in community? In what ways can we walk together on the path?
Following an introduction to the labyrinth, the workshop will take us into exploring our deep-rooted principles and lived-out values. We will look carefully at ways the labyrinth provides a radically welcoming sacred space for groups and communities as they work toward reducing the distance between us, honoring the gifts of one another and being a healing presence in a society that is experiencing much hurt and injustice.
Our Friday evening session includes a Summer Solstice Labyrinth Walk. The Saturday workshop will include a session on creating beloved community on the labyrinth.
We hope you will join us for this unique labyrinth experience nestled in the beautiful, forested small rural community near the Hudson River and Stony Point State Park in New York.
Led by Veriditas Master Teacher,
the Reverend Dr. Kay Mutert.
Veriditas Faculty member Rev. Dr. Kay Mutert leads labyrinth workshops in awakening new creative energy, community building, and spiritual transformation. Her Master Teacher responsibilities includes training new facilitators and renewal training for those trained in past years. She works with organizations to establish labyrinth communities, to hear the hopes of a setting and translate that into an ongoing vision. In her workshops and trainings she invites participants to discover and develop their own gifts and skills, and to build community.
Following an extended time of work with all ages in education and music, Kay then served as a minister in the United Methodist and British Methodist churches. When she left her local church ministry Kay created "DaySpring - a source of creative expression and renewal of spirit", as a conduit to work with a broader circle of community. Through her labyrinth work, she uses her experience as musician, teacher, minister, and spiritual accompanist with groups and individuals from diverse arenas of life, inviting them to discover the possibilities of the labyrinth in today’s world.
For this workshop setting Kay will be drawing upon her many years of work in creativity and education. She is a conductor, composer and pianist, incorporating her music into her events. Kay has been a Veriditas pilgrimage leader and musician, member of the Veriditas Council, and Southeastern USA regional representative.
