In this  pilgrimage designed for both our hearts and our minds, we will encounter Mary in Chartres where she has been venerated over the centuries, tracing her place in the story of the Sacred Feminine.  Each day, we will begin in the chapel with medieval and contemporary song and chant led by Ruth Cunningham followed by Judith Tripp’s exploration of the Sacred Feminine through lecture, image, writing practice, guided meditations, exploration of the Cathedral and a glorious evening candlelit labyrinth walk.

We will begin our pilgrimage with a reception on Sunday August 30 and prepare for our labyrinth walk on Monday August 31 with a session with Lauren Artress in the afternoon.  Each morning we will begin with meditation in the Cathedral or garden, a music session with Ruth Cunningham in the chapel and the ongoing program of lecture, group process and art in the  morning sessions.  We will conclude with an art project and a celebratory dinner on Thursday night. 

This is a once in a lifetime experience that participants are drawn to repeat.  Join us in this ancient place of refuge and renewal so needed in our times.
