Robert Ferré will detail his research and understanding of the Sacred Geometry of the Chartres Labyrinth based on fifty-three visits to the cathedral. Local architect Kent Schuette will guide us in creating wondrous designs with a compass and lead an evening walking tour of New Harmony to reveal how Sacred Geometry was used in the planning of the town including its buildings, landmarks, and gardens.

Robert Ferré was the first full-time labyrinth builder in the United States, beginning in 1995. He and his associates at Labyrinth Enterprises hand-built more than 1,000 labyrinths, both portable and permanent (plus temporary ones). He has written numerous books about labyrinth building as well as giving lectures and masterclasses. In the first training he gave for Veriditas, he met Lars Howlett, who served as Robert's apprentice before establishing his own place in the labyrinth world. Robert still makes the occasional labyrinth, enjoying retirement in San Antonio with his wife Linda Ricketts, working on writing projects and playing pickleball.
