The goal of Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator Training is to prepare people to introduce others to the labyrinth in an articulate, professional and effective way. The training addresses meditative walking in a variety of settings, with a variety of different populations. 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.
Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to enhance knowledge about labyrinth in general and specifically, design the labyrinth events, present the labyrinth to and hold labyrinth walks for the attendee’s community.
Please note: prior attendance at a Veriditas qualifying workshop is required. The online workshop prior to this training considered a qualifying workshop.
Remark: Social distance and restrictions are observed, and the workshop may be re-arranged according to the COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong.
