Being the Change: Using the Labyrinth and SoulCollage® for Inner Exploration and Clarity. Qualifying Workshop
with Catherine Anderson

This one day workshop invites you to explore the labyrinth and the SoulCollage® process as creative and embodied practices for the journey of life. These are times for deep soul searching, for discerning what it is we are here to do and be, and for finding ways we can be the change we want to see in the world.

Both SoulCollage® and the labyrinth give us ways to access our own inner resources and intuition. Using one of them alone will make a difference in your life, but used together they amplify and deepen each other because they are both languages of the soul. They enable us to access our inner world and deepen our understanding of ourselves as we journey on this path called life. Both processes allow us to create a sense of order out of the information that bombards us from all directions, and both encourage us to develop a higher level of awareness which enables us to thrive in the complex and ever-changing world in which we live.

This workshop will give you an embodied experience of the labyrinth together with a creative way to process your experience. During our time together you will experience walking the labyrinth and using images to make your own unique collage cards. We will see what messages arise from within as we explore the question of how we can be the change we want to see in the world.

No previous experience of SoulCollage® is necessary to attend this workshop. All supplies to create your cards will be provided.

You will receive a link to book your accommodation at Bon Secours Conference and Retreat Center once you have registered. A single room is $129 per night and includes meals during the workshop.

Labyrinth Facilitator Training
with Catherine Anderson

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. 

How to know if Facilitator Training is right for you?

  • Want to deepen your own labyrinth practice?
  • Want the tools and guidance that will enable you to bring the labyrinth to your community?
  • Want to connect with a supportive community of Labyrinth Facilitators around the world?
  • Find yourself heading up a labyrinth program at your church, school, hospital, college etc. and need broad training and/or specific answers?
  • Considering offering labyrinth walking as part of your healing, counseling, yoga or  coaching business and are curious about the business considerations involved?
  • Love the labyrinth and want to offer workshops of your own? Consider completing Facilitator Training on the path to becoming Certified, Advance Trained and Accredited. Our Veriditas Accredited Presenters are now offering some of our qualifying workshops.

We encourage you to join us!

Your Very Own Labyrinth
with Lars Howlett

Have you dreamed of creating a labyrinth in your living room, backyard, or neighborhood? Whether temporary or permanent, ten feet in diameter or sixty feet wide, develop your toolkit for making labyrinths that benefit any intention or space. Learn how to create the archetypal Classical and Chartres variations quickly and easily using simple materials. Craft a tabletop labyrinth for a home altar or art installation using small objects and make two simple walkable labyrinths. Apply the techniques you learn to design labyrinths for your own workshops, presentations, festivals and projects.

Through inspiring slideshows and video tutorials Lars Howlett (Discover Labyrinths) will share his experience engaging a wide variety of labyrinth settings, materials and audiences to illustrate how small and simple labyrinths can have a big impact. We’ll explore how patterns resonate differently and which are better suited for small spaces, diverse communities, and varying age-ranges and abilities. A special guest will join to share ideas and inspiration for community labyrinths.

Catherine Anderson, Faculty

The labyrinth Catherine constructed in her backyard in 2007 has been an important element in her mindfulness and creativity practices and Catherine loves showing others how the labyrinth can support us in quietening our mind and uncover our creativity. She is the author of Journaling the Labyrinth Path, a book of finger labyrinths, quotes and journal prompts inspiring you to find your unique work in the world, and Meeting Your Soul on the Labyrinth: SoulCollage® and the Labyrinth as Pathways for Transformation.

Catherine uses the labyrinth, SoulCollage®, expressive arts, poetry and mindfulness as pathways for self-discovery and as ways of uncovering meaning and purpose in life. Her personal journey of self-discovery has taken her from a career as an attorney to photography-franchise owner, to creativity-workshop facilitator.

Photography is another creative passion for Catherine and her book The Creative Photographer won a Silver Nautilus Award in the Creative Process Category in 2012.  As a SoulCollage® Facilitator Trainer, Catherine loves teaching others how to facilitate workshops using the SoulCollage® process which uses images as a form of “soul language” to access our inner wisdom.

As a life-long learner, Catherine has been fortunate to train with Jean Houston, Seena Frost, Lauren Artress, Jan Phillips and many other wise teachers. In addition to her work in the US, Catherine leads creative pilgrimage retreats in South Africa, France, Italy, Mexico and Portugal.
