    Join us and submerge yourself in the world of labyrinths.  Veriditas is offering a potpourri of experiences designed to teach you everything you ever wanted to know about walking and building labyrinths - all in one week.

    The week will begin with an evening lecture and one day workshop for anyone interested in beginning or renewing their connection to the labyrinth.

    Labyrinth Summer School Qualifying Workshop: 

    Create!

    How does the labyrinth hold the energy for creative expression and renewal?

    As you are learning the ways to create, draw and build labyrinths in the labyrinth summer school, so also learn ways for the labyrinth to hold energy for creative expression, new paths of energy and action, new ways of moving and doing.

    Join us in a time of creative activity on the labyrinth as you both renew your own energy and learn ways to offer new possibilities to others. Come and join us in the dance!

    There will be an additional opportunity in the evening on August 14th for you to participate in a short SoulCollage® workshop with SoulCollage® Facilitator Trainer Catherine Anderson.

    SoulCollage® is an intuitive collage process and can be used as a way to integrate a labyrinth walk through symbolic expression. It is a creative and easy way

    to uncover your inner wisdom using images, intuition and imagination - and glue and scissors. All supplies will be provided.

    Led by Veriditas Master Teacher,

    the Reverend Dr. Kay Mutert.

    Kay is a member of the Veriditas Council and a certified Veriditas Advanced Facilitator, now serving as Veriditas' USA Southeast Regional Representative. Her current business is called "DaySpring - a source of creative expression and renewal of spirit". She uses her experience as musician, minister, and teacher in working with groups and individuals from all arenas of life, inviting them to discover the possibilities of the labyrinth in the journey to experience a reconnection with the sacredness of life. She has worked with labyrinths for the past 12 years. Kay's focus is on helping others find ways for renewal of mind, body, spirit and creative energy, through retreats, workshops and sacred events. Kay served congregations in the United Methodist Church and the British Methodist Church. Before that she worked as a music educator and musician in Florida and Alabama. She is a conductor, composer and pianist, wanting to let her love for the spirit of music and movement speak to the hearts of others. Her work has included compositions and concerts for those affected by cancer and AIDS.

    Kay has served as musician and program presenter at Iona Abbey, and has been an associate of the international ecumenical Iona Community based in Scotland. She offers workshops and worship experiences utilizing the resources of Iona, Taize and global music.

    Kay believes the ancient archetype of the labyrinth serves as a strong source of possibility for today's world, in meditation, reconciliation, peace-making, for young and old, for cross-cultures, for community and personal use. Through her experience in the a variety of settings, Kay works to honor the non-verbal expression of meaning, as felt in the labyrinth, through movement, and through visual and musical expressions.

    Kay's strengths lie in the areas of group facilitation, understanding where persons may be and bridging the gaps of language or expression, so that they may be open to new experiences. Her approach is invitational. Her training and experience in creative arts, in movement, and in pastoral care, ministry and teacher education provide strength for her work with the labyrinth.

    Kay holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education from Mississippi State University, graduating 1st in her class, Master of Arts in Vocal Music Education from University of South Florida, where she served as a teaching assistant, Doctor of Education in Secondary Music Education from University of Alabama, where she served as teaching assistant and then faculty/staff member, and Master of Divinity from Candler School of Theology, as a Woodruff Scholar. She has published a set of her musical compositions, Songs for the Journey, with Joe Elmore, among other vocal/choral/piano compositions. Her upcoming book At the end of the day tells the story of her first year of life and ministry in England.

    Learn the art of sacred geometry from Classical seed patterns to the elegant symmetry and symbolism of the Chartres labyrinth in a one-day workshop offered by Lars Howlett. Drawing labyrinths is an easy, relaxing, and fun way to understand this ancient archetype for beginners and experts alike. Lars will share the defining elements of what makes a labyrinth and explain the ins and outs of various designs including photos, diagrams, and hands-on exercises.

    Taught in a classroom setting, students will receive a workbook highlighting the history, classification, and methods for drawing traditional or one-of-a-kind labyrinths. Students can apply new skills in the creation of finger labyrinths, artistic projects, or formal plans for a large-scale installation. This is a great opportunity to learn about a diversity of designs, explore how and why certain patterns resonate with people, and gain the confidence to explain and introduce the definition and philosophy of these beloved symbols to others.

    Stories and slideshows will explore the best options for a variety of communities and settings, from schools to festivals, churches to hospitals, backyards to public parks and more. Learn how to appropriately alter proportions, paths, circuits, and the center to fit a variety of environments. See photos from Lars’ professional projects and pilgrimages to sacred sites around the world including Chartres, Iona, and Sweden.

    The beautiful little isle of Iona, Scotland, known as a place of pilgrimage for seekers over the centuries, provides the setting for a modern day pilgrimage for reflection, meditation and renewal of spirit.

    Join us in a place and time to reflect on the lives of early Celtic figures in a space of historical mystery and meaning in the natural rhythms of day and night, as each participant reflects on our own journeys, our connections with land, mystery and meaning. We need time-out and time-in sacred space, for the healing formation of living in today's world. We will share chant and silence, reflection and renewal, walks and talks in the ancient paths and shores of Iona.

    Together we share the journey of labyrinth to enfold our time here: One day pilgrimage walk to south shore stone labyrinth on Columba's bay, site of Columba's first step on Iona. We will also create our own creation of temporary seaweed labyrinth on north shore, to walk then be taken back into the sea. Each are reminders of our journey of life in this liminal setting of history.

    Join us for this journey to a thin place, that you might revisit the turns of your own life and your place in the calling of the world today.

    As it takes a half day to travel within Scotland to Iona, it is recommended that you plan to arrive in Iona on Tuesday afternoon. Our opening session will be on Tuesday evening.

    Will be followed by Veriditas Facilitator Training on August 28, and 29. Registration is open.

    Accommodation and Meals are an additional charge.

    What makes a labyrinth tick? From seed patterns to sacred geometry, Classical to Chartres, how do winding paths unravel our sense of space and time? Why do some designs resonate for some but not others? What labyrinth is right for you, your space, your budget, your body, your mind, your chapter of life?

    Join Lars Howlett and Lauren Artress as they reflect on the magic and mystery of labyrinths as a ancient archetype for contemporary contemplative practice. As labyrinths have evolved over the past 4,000 years, some aspects of the design and implementation have stood the test of time. As custom patterns and site-specific variations are created, some are more successful while others fall short. Creating a true sacred space takes the right balance of intention and tradition, imagination and implementation. Whether a path of prayer, mindful meditation, home for healing, or symbolic object, explore the art and soul of labyrinths in this engaging webinar.

    Meeting Mary at Chartres – a two day experience of the Sacred Feminine.


    Led by Judith Tripp, MA, MFT, a member of the Veriditas Faculty, a transpersonal psychotherapist, leader of Women's Dream Quest, and teacher.  She leads pilgrimages and retreats in the US, Europe and Australia.  She is also an author, a musician and singer.

    Anyone who comes to Chartres whether it be to visit the labyrinth, to explore the magnificent medieval architecture or to meditate in the glory of this always sacred site, soon realizes that this holy place is an homage to Mary. The Sacred Feminine is alive and well in Chartres and has been throughout history.

    Over this weekend, we will create a sacred circle to explore how Mary has been honored in Chartres throughout history. We will meet her spirit through lecture, meditation, art, music and ritual. We will share insights, creations and stories. Our time will include special evening in Chartres Cathedral, with a procession and a candle-lit labyrinth walk with flute and vocal music.  

    This can be a stand-alone workshop or a perfect pairing with to Cycle One of Walking A Sacred Path.

    Below is a 20 minute webinar which outlines what you can expect in this mini Pilgrimage.

    You must give birth to your images; they are your future waiting to be born. Fear not the uneasiness you feel. You future must enter you long before it happens. Just wait for the birth.        ~Rilke

    It is no secret that we live during an unsettling time: an age of technology, Quantum Physics and apocalyptic tremors that are frightening people.  Our times have been called The Great Turning or The Great Awakening. Chartres Cathedral, with it's artful wisdom offers us images that can help us move through these challenging times. 

    From the dust of the old rises new answers. The labyrinth is one of these archetypal forms as well as the Green Man, Mary Madelene, the Holy Fool and more. We will utilize these archetypal images to strengthen our connection to ourselves, our communities and our ailing world. 

    Through lecture, discussions, a small group process, walking the labyrinth and having leisure time in this extraordinary Cathedral, and beautiful medieval village—we will nourish our inner world, clarify our purpose in life and renew our commitment to be active participants in the unfolding mystery.

     Pilgrimage begins on Monday, September 12th at 4:00 pm registration and will end on Friday, September 16th with a celebratory closing dinner. A tour of the Cathedral and a special experience in the Crypt bookend our private candlelit labyrinth walk with medieval music accompaniment from the Fulberg Ensemble.

    This is our first Walking A Sacred Path on the soon to be uncovered labyrinth and newly renovated Cathedral. If you’ve been in the past, consider joining us for an experience of renewal! If you are new to Chartres or Veriditas, it’s a perfect time to join us. 

    Registration Costs:  Early Bird $1199; after August 1 $1399.  

    Labyrinth Facilitator Training will be held on Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18th.  Application required.  $700 USD

    Advanced Facilitator Training will be offered on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, September 19-21. Application required. $900 USD

    • Sintra and Fatima, Portugal
    • 10

    Join us on a soulful journey to sacred sites in the land of the Lusitani, or “people of the light,” the ancient Celt-Iberian ancestors of the modern Portuguese. On this pilgrimage, we journey to the western shores of Europe, to a place of refuge, rest, and renewal, where the Earth-based spiritual wisdom of the Celts is subtly woven into the fabric of the Portuguese culture and landscape. 

    A deeply feminine landscape is awakening in Portugal, and the spiral path of the labyrinth provides context for our encounter with the mysteries of the sacred feminine. The imaginal realm beckons us as we encounter legends of Our Lady, and engage with numinous sites where her archetypal presence, embodied in Mary, has been witnessed. Through the wisdom of the labyrinth and the legends of Mary, explore your relationships with others, with yourself, with the Earth, and with Spirit. Join us in Portugal and learn to reinhabit your soul.

    Pilgrimage, like walking the labyrinth, is something we do simultaneously inwardly and outwardly. We will use meditation, movement, music, prayer beads, SoulCollage®, and various healing arts to open to the next step in our individual spiritual paths. We will meet daily in practice and group process to affirm and integrate our experiences.

    We will visit and experience:

    • Sintra, the Hill of the Moon, a verdant, archetypally feminine landscape, where ancient wisdom is encoded in architecture, legend, and the land itself
    • Fatima, and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rosary, home of one of the most famous Marian apparition and pilgrimage sites in Europe
    • Nazaré, where the Shrine of Our Lady of Nazareth sits on the bluffs above the Atlantic Ocean, drawing pilgrims from all over Portugal to honor the mysterious and legendary statue of Mary and Child

    We will stay three nights at the charming Chalet Saudade guesthouse in the heart of Sintra’s medieval village, and then travel to Fatima for two more nights based at the Luz Houses, a boutique rural hotel that is off the beaten path, yet walking distance from the Fatima apparation sites.

    Emily Simpson will talk about how building the Centennial Park Labyrinth in Sydney became a spiritual quest which transformed her life. From her initial vision of a labyrinth in that much-loved, Heritage listed park, to the daunting task of having to raise $500K from a community that knew nothing about labyrinths, to learning how to navigate a resistant bureaucratic maze and finally arriving at the splendid opening ceremony of a landmark labyrinth in the heart of Sydney.

    Walking Grace

    That first day,
    before I knew
    its path would become
    my way home,
    some part of me
    fell into the labyrinth.
    A thread of my cocoon
    must have snagged
    on the silence at its centre
    and begun, very gently,
    to unspool.

    Step by step,
    with every labyrinth that I walked
    it continued to unravel,
    years of carefully spun layers,
    leaving traces of presence in its wake.
    Today, I felt the tug
    of the final fibres being claimed,
    my life now woven deep
    into that meandering path.
    A new story emerging from the old
    with a shape and a voice
    and wings.

    by Emily Simpson


    BIO:

    Emily Simpson has been an actress, an entrepreneur and a poet. She founded 'Full Bloom' in 1995 to make beautiful underwear for pregnant women. Their philosophy was one of dynamic self-acceptance with a sizing guide of Small, Medium, Large, Gorgeous, Extra-Gorgeous and Goddess.

    During that time, she won several marketing awards including being a State Finalist for the Telstra Businesswoman of the Year Awards in 2000.  She sold the business in 2006 and has since self-published two books of poetry.  

    She first walked a labyrinth at the Grace Cathedral in 2009 and went on to become a Certified Veriditas Facilitator and Board Member  from 2011- 2013. She built Australia’s first sandstone labyrinth in Centennial Park, Sydney with funds donated by an inspired community. It was opened in September 2014 with the blessing of wisdom keepers from 11 different faith traditions. 

    She now manages the Sydney Labyrinth website and Facebook page, organizes facilitated group walks at the Centennial Park Labyrinth on the first Sunday of every month and is hosting a Veriditas Summer School in Sydney in January. She is also planning the first Australian Labyrinth Dreaming Festival for September 2017.

    In the time of the year, when the inner world beckons, we will come together to explore what it means to create beautiful and meaningful rituals and ceremonies on the labyrinth.  On Friday evening, we will participate in a ritual of inward turning, evoking the themes of the season:  advent, hibernation and cultivation of the inner light.  

    On Saturday we will reflect upon our Friday evening experience to explore the elements of ritual creation.  Lauren and Judith will give examples of successful rituals that they have incorporated in their labyrinth work. You will have the opportunity to create a ritual or ceremony to take back to your community.  We will use the labyrinth as a laboratory for our creativity.  

    Some of the topics we will cover include:

    • Choosing the theme—seasonal, special occasion, anniversary 
    • Designing the sequence and the importance of pacing
    • The use of storytelling 
    • Developing the voice to guide a ritual
    • Using your intuition to guide the flow of events

    Labyrinth Design and Drawing
    with Lars Howlett

    Learn the art of sacred geometry from Classical seed patterns to the elegant symmetry and symbolism of the Chartres labyrinth in a one-day workshop offered by professional labyrinth builder, Lars Howlett. Drawing labyrinths is an easy, relaxing, and fun way to understand this ancient archetype for beginners and experts alike. Lars will share the defining elements of what makes a labyrinth and explain the ins and outs of various designs including photos, diagrams, and hands-on exercises.

    Taught in a classroom setting, students will receive a workbook highlighting the history, classification, and methods for drawing traditional or one-of-a-kind labyrinths. Students can apply new skills in the creation of finger labyrinths, artistic projects, or formal plans for a large-scale installation. This is a great opportunity to learn about a diversity of designs, explore how and why certain patterns resonate with people, and gain the confidence to explain and introduce the definition and philosophy of these beloved symbols to others.

    Learn the art of sacred geometry from Classical seed patterns to the elegant symmetry and symbolism of the Chartres labyrinth in a one-day workshop offered by professional labyrinth builder, Lars Howlett. Drawing labyrinths is an easy, relaxing, and fun way to understand this ancient archetype for beginners and experts alike. Lars will share the defining elements of what makes a labyrinth and explain the ins and outs of various designs including photos, diagrams, and hands-on exercises.

    Taught in a classroom setting, students will receive a workbook highlighting the history, classification, and methods for drawing traditional or one-of-a-kind labyrinths. Students can apply new skills in the creation of finger labyrinths, artistic projects, or formal plans for a large-scale installation. This is a great opportunity to learn about a diversity of designs, explore how and why certain patterns resonate with people, and gain the confidence to explain and introduce the definition and philosophy of these beloved symbols to others.

    Lunch and refreshments provided.
