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.

May it be so.
