Reverend Dr. Kay Mutert
The Rev. Dr. Kay Mutert has been working with the Master Teacher program of Veriditas since 2008, offering labyrinth workshops in awakening new creative energy, community building, and spiritual transformation.
Her Master Teacher responsibilities include training new facilitators and renewal training for those trained in past years.
She works with organizations to establish labyrinth communities, to hear the hopes of a setting and translate that into an ongoing vision.
In her workshops and trainings she holds the space for participants to discover and develop their own gifts and skills, and to build community.
Kay has been a member of the Veriditas Council, Southeastern USA regional representative, and musician. When she left her local church ministry Kay created "DaySpring - a source of creative expression and renewal of spirit", as a conduit to work with an increasingly larger circle of community.
Through her labyrinth work, she uses her experience as musician, minister, teacher and spiritual accompanist with groups and individuals from diverse arenas of life, inviting them to discover the possibilities of the labyrinth to experience a reconnection with the sacredness of life, to find the language for their own setting.
Kay's work helps others find ways for renewal of mind, body, spirit and creative energy, through retreats, workshops and sacred events.
Lars Howlett is a leading expert in the design and creation of sacred space for walking meditation, centering prayer, personal healing, conflict resolution and community building. Lars is a practitioner of mindfulness and student of sacred geometry since 2003, experimenting with a wide variety of designs, materials, intentions and settings in his personal and professional projects. Universities, churches, health centers, retirement communities, mental health centers, retreats, and individuals find Lars for inspiration and insight in creating exact replicas of historical patterns or one-of-a-kind artistic installations.
Lars was a three year apprentice to Robert Ferré, inheriting the tools, techniques, and teaching curriculum of a master builder. Lars is a Veriditas Faculty Member and Certified Labyrinth Facilitator trained by the Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress at Grace and Chartres Cathedrals. He is the Chairperson of World Labyrinth Day and Board Member of the Labyrinth Society.

Robert Ferré was the first full-time labyrinth builder in the United States, beginning in 1995. He and his associates at Labyrinth Enterprises hand-built more than 1,000 labyrinths, both portable and permanent (plus temporary ones). He has written numerous books about labyrinth building as well as giving lectures and masterclasses. In the first training he gave for Veriditas, he met Lars Howlett, who served as Robert's apprentice before establishing his own place in the labyrinth world. Robert still makes the occasional labyrinth, enjoying retirement in San Antonio with his wife Linda Ricketts, working on writing projects and playing pickleball.
