The Labyrinth. A Path to your deepest wisdom.
We are so glad you've found us! If you are new to the labyrinth, you might want to learn more about it here, or watch our short video series presented by our Founder, the Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress. As she defines it, "The Labyrinth is a spiritual tool that has many applications in various settings. It reduces stress, quiets the mind and opens the heart. It is a walking meditation, a path of prayer, and a blue-print where psyche meets Spirit." Here is a resource to Locate a labyrinth near you.
Feel free to contact us if you have questions along the way.
Whether you walked by finger or foot, online or in person, we cherished connecting with you all on World Labyrinth Day. Please enjoy this edited video recording from our weekly gathering on May 1st, 2021 facilitated by Lauren Artress with the theme of connection. Lars Howlett joined live from Grace Cathedral in San Francisco where he walked to embody the group in that sacred space, with a shared intention for peace, healing, and wisdom in this time of great turning. Thanks to all the partners and organizers including The Labyrinth Society, Legacy Labyrinth Project, and the Australian Labyrinth Network.

Using the Labyrinth to Heal and Transform
with the Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress
We often say there are two major ways to use the labyrinth. The first and most popular way is meditative walking. The second is ceremonial—or ritual—use. Over the years a third way seems to be coming to the forefront: using the labyrinth to heal and transform. This on-line class with Lauren Artress highlights specific uses; some that are outlined in her book The Sacred Path Companion. Enjoy the class and let your imagination build on the ideas Lauren articulates here to create your own healing rituals to share with family, friends and in workshop settings.
Sessions include: a labyrinth overview, benefits of walking the labyrinth, Applications of the labyrinth for psycho-spiritual healing, Shadow Work and Soul Assignment Work

A Community for All
Like the labyrinth itself, Veriditas welcomes all. We embrace inclusivity and particularly, in this moment of reflection and reckoning, racial equality. We stand with all who are marginalized by systemic inequities in the United States and globally. Whatever one’s age, gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, ability or experience, the Veriditas community supports all who wish to explore the labyrinth as a way to tap their own deepest wisdom.
As the world leader in training labyrinth facilitators, we are dedicated to transformational growth, not only for individuals, communities and globally…but for our own organization. We recognize the important work we have to do to further integrate diversity, equality and inclusion into the fabric of Veriditas. The labyrinth, used worldwide for healing, conflict resolution, understanding, ceremony and community building, is our most powerful tool. A path on which, through compassion, understanding and respect for the richness of our differences, we can walk forward together.
