Expand your labyrinth toolkit for leading walks and workshops in a variety of settings! Learn the ins and outs of labyrinth making in this new workshop for facilitators revealing quick and easy methods for drawing simple designs and creating temporary labyrinths. We’ll explore patterns best-suited for small spaces, special events, diverse communities, and varying age-ranges and abilities. Gather ideas and enhance your skills for leading sessions in contemplative drawing, labyrinth blessing, energizing spaces, and community building.
Lauren Artress will join for a discussion about how to season a labyrinth, offering ideas and examples of ways to bring a new path to life or revive a lonely one. All participants are invited to a special dinner on an outdoor labyrinth at the home of local artist Ben Nicholson.
