Facilitating the Labyrinth is a Spiritual Path ...

The goal of this Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator Training is to prepare people to introduce others to the labyrinth in an articulate, professional and effective way. The training addresses both meditative walking and ceremonial use. It is focused primarily on the Eleven Circuit Medieval Labyrinth but is inclusive of all forms.

Walking the labyrinth is being embraced as a spiritual practice throughout the Western world mostly because of Veriditas trained facilitators. The Veriditas Facilitator Training -- which began in 1997 -- remains the most rigorous and comprehensive training offered. Some people take this two-day course to deepen their knowledge of labyrinths. Others take it with the goal of becoming a Veriditas Certified Labyrinth Facilitator.

Learn to offer the labyrinth experience to others in this professional, in-depth, two day training.  Please note: prior attendance at a Veriditas qualifying workshop is required.

The training will be led by Veriditas Faculty Kathe Rhinesmith and Anne Bonney.

Kathe is a former association executive, teacher, trainer and conference presenter. Her interest in the labyrinth was inspired by a visit to Grace Cathedral in 2006. In 2011 she took the Facilitator Training in Chartres with Lauren Artress, and in 2016 at Chartres, is a Veriditas Certified Advanced Facilitator and Trainer. She chairs the Labyrinth Ministry Committee at Naples United Church of Christ in Naples, Florida where she is also a church Trustee. In addition to facilitating workshops and walks on the labyrinth, Kathe’s joy has been in facilitating the building of three Chartres style labyrinths, in Chatham, MA, Naples, FL, and on the campus of her alma mater, Ohio Wesleyan University. This labyrinth, dedicated in 2015, is the third Veriditas Legacy Labyrinth, built in collaboration with labyrinth designer Robert Ferre and master builder Marty Kermeen.

Kathe currently serves as Chair of the Veriditas Board of Directors.
