Who is Mary and how can she help us navigate the immense challenges we face? Pilgrims to the Chartres Cathedral discover there are over three hundred images of Mary with the power to respond to this question. If you are ready to explore the possibility of coming home to yourself, the world, and the Divine in renewed ways, these images can help. Through visual presentations and embodied contemplation participants will take a deep dive with Notre Dame de Chartres.

The Rev. Jill K. H. Geoffrion, Ph.D. D.D.

The beauty of the Chartres Cathedral inspires Jill to use her gifts and training in service of all those seeking to experience deep and transformative Divine Love through this medieval building and its imagery. Jill’s most recent book, Visions of Mary, Art, Devotion, and Beauty at Chartres Cathedral, explores the ancient imagery and modern interpretations of the over two hundred Marian images in the cathedral. Whether on-site or on-line, Jill combines stunning images and historical research to create contemplative prayer experiences. Like crossing the threshold through the doors of the cathedral and discovering a magnificent universe, the contemplative prayer experiences Jill offers can open vast inner worlds of faith and beauty.

See to learn more about Jill’s ministries on four continents where she often serves in places of acute suffering. Follow links to her art-based prayer blogs and sites on labyrinth prayer and the Chartres Cathedral. Her professional photography graces each page.

The Chartres Experience

What better place to feel nurtured than the sacred space of Chartres Cathedral? We begin with a reception to meet each other followed by an opening ritual and orientation to the program. Then each day, there is a morning seminar, a small processing group, and an experience of what Chartres has to offer. On Tuesday afternoon, there is a tour of Chartres Cathedral. Then, on Wednesday, there is an orientation to the labyrinth followed by a once in a life-time candlelit labyrinth walk with medieval music on the Chartres Labyrinth.  Thursday afternoon is a tour of the Crypt , and a closing celebratory reception and dinner are on Friday.


Our block booking to reserve a room at the Hotellerie St. Yves where the program is held will open soon. All Pilgrims who have already registered will be emailed to make their reservations prior to the link becoming available on our website.

Veriditas is dedicated to inspiring personal and planetary change and renewal through the labyrinth experience.

We accomplish our mission by training and supporting labyrinth facilitators around the world, and offering meaningful events that promote further understanding of the labyrinth as a tool for personal and community transformation. Our Vision is that the labyrinth experience guides us in developing the higher level of human awareness we need to thrive in the 21st century.
