Vice Chair: Stephanie Reib
In 2010, Stephanie met Lauren Artress and the labyrinth. It was love at first walk. She found the labyrinth to be a perfect tool for reflection, insight and creative problem-solving. Following her pilgrimage to Chartres with Veriditas in 2014, Stephanie completed facilitator training in 2016 and joined the Board in 2018. While working to support Veriditas and our facilitators, she also hopes to help increase the creation and use of labyrinths for mindfulness and health, particularly in medical, therapeutic and community settings.
Massachusetts and Florida
Rev. Anne Bonney is one of the Founders of Pilgrim’s Landing, an Inter-Spiritual Life Center of Cape Cod: a non-proﬁt organization working at the intersection of spirituality, education and social justice. (www.pilgrimslandingcapecod.org).
Anne’s Spiritual journey led her to Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia and a Master of Divinity Degree. In1986, she was ordained into Christian Ministry and was one of the few women at the time to serve the church as solo or senior Pastor. After a trip to India and a Christian encounter with Hinduism, Anne returned to Seminary for a Master of Theology Degree in Interfaith Spirituality and also a Certiﬁcate in Spiritual Direction.
It was during a Sabbatical in 1999 that she ﬁrst discovered the Labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral. She was immediately drawn to its beautiful circular, universal design and the centering and healing energy she experienced there. However, It was not until 10 years later, after having retired to the Cape, that she rediscovered the labyrinth. The Chatham Clergy Association won approval for building a labyrinth as a gift to the town for its 300th anniversary. Anne went with two others to Chartres to receive the Labyrinth Facilitator Training and in July of 2012, the Chatham Labyrinth was dedicated by Dr. Lauren Artress! Pilgrim’s Landing is now “the landing” for the Chatham Labyrinth and Anne and a dedicated team of Facilitators and Volunteers run an active Labyrinth program. Anne completed her Advanced Training and Train the Trainer and has been a member the Veriditas Faculty. She is honored and delighted to now be a member of the Veriditas Board.
Kristi Archuleta, Ed.D.
Kristi is a Professor of Organizational Leadership at the University of Central Oklahoma. She has been teaching in Higher Education for over 20 years and often works in roles aimed at leading and supporting faculty. Much of her time has been focused on connecting ideas, people, and resources and giving a voice to those who are not always heard.
Kristi first learned of the Chartres labyrinth in 2004 and found a walking practice when a permanent labyrinth was built on the UCO campus in 2013. Kristi attended Facilitator Training in 2018, went on the Veriditas pilgrimage to Chartres in the fall of 2022, and finished Advanced Facilitator Training this past spring. She will also complete her second yoga teacher training program this summer.
Beyond a place of grounding and centering, many ideas of how to serve others have emerged through daily, disciplined walking. Kristi is grateful to have the opportunity to be on the board and help Veriditas continue to grow and thrive!
