A graceful seduction
Come into the quiet
and be gracious with time
and with yourself.
Take off your thoughts,
and lay them aside.
Ease into the silence and
surrender to the stillness.
Lose yourself in being.
Let its joy and ease
through the stresses and
anxieties of your everyday.
~ Noel Davis
If you are new to labyrinths, or if you have had experience with walking labyrinths, these two quiet afternoons online offer opportunities to walk the labyrinth as meditation - quieting the mind, and being in the here and now. An invitation to let go of noise and distraction, and immerse into the still quiet space of being.
During our time together, we will learn about the Santa Teresa Labyrinth on Quandamooka Country in Australia, and how walking a labyrinth as a contemplative path invites us into sacred space.
Participants may attend this day as a Qualifying Workshop towards Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator Training.

Presenter: Sue Thomas, Spiritual Director, Veriditas Faculty.
“The labyrinth belongs to no one and everyone” has been a grounding mantra in my work, as I walk labyrinths, draw labyrinths on beaches, work with peers in creating large portable calico labyrinths, and use the hand labyrinth for journaling and reflection in many facets of my life and life’s work.
I live on the land of the Yugambeh language peoples, the traditional custodians of the Gold Coast region in South-East Queensland. My long association with using the labyrinth as a tool for contemplative, meditative and spiritual practices began many years ago when the labyrinth ‘found’ me in Year 11 at high school through an “Art and Architecture in History” subject. Using the labyrinth as a tool for contemplation and reflection in my previous role as Lay Pastoral Minister for Brisbane Catholic Archdiocese, my current work as Spiritual Director and retreat facilitator, and my personal spiritual practice has been grounded and enriched by connecting with Veriditas. I am a certified Veriditas Advanced Facilitator and Trainer, a member of Veriditas Faculty, and a member of the Australian Labyrinth Network.
