After changing patterns, practices, rhythms of life in these many months of covid, as many places open back up, how do you discern what you hope to hold on to and what to let go of? How will what you’ve experienced in the pandemic season make a difference in how you face the future? How does the labyrinth offer a practice for reflection? 


Led by the Reverend Dr. Kay Muter and held online, this workshop addresses our times and is open to all those interested in the topic.  It also serves as a Qualifying Workshop for those interested in going on to attend Facilitator Training.

For the Love of Classical Labyrinths

With Lars Howlett and special guest Richard Feather Anderson


Friday July 23rd, 2021 from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm (Pacific Time) $125


Deepen your connection and appreciation for the Classical Labyrinth—the great grandmother of all labyrinths!


The Classical pattern is the oldest and simplest form of a labyrinth, treasured by a wide variety of cultures and traditions over the past four to six-thousand years. A survey of its design gets us in touch with the archetypal roots of all labyrinths and a better understanding of the basic ingredients that evoke ‘the labyrinth experience’. In this online workshop organized by Veriditas Faculty member Lars Howlett we will delight in the history, evolution, and application of the Classical Labyrinth. Learn the ins and outs of its sacred geometry and symbolism including how it reflects the basic patterns of life, a journey through the chakras, and the four directions. We’ll contemplate the many Classical variations such as the Chakra-vyuha, Baltic Wheel, and Man in the Maze with photographs of stunning examples from around the world.


Special guest Richard Feather Anderson will share his passion for the design which he has studied in-depth since 1982 as one of the early pioneers of the Labyrinth Revival. The 5-hour workshop will be presented live on Zoom with a half hour break and opportunity for questions, group chat, and connecting with other participants. A comprehensive digital workbook will be provided as a PDF and the unedited recording of the live session will be offered to participants for reference and review for one month. Attending the workshop live is encouraged, but not required, and couples or friends joining from a single screen can register with a guest for a reduced price. 


Note: Step-by-step instructions on drawing the labyrinths will not be part of this workshop, though variations of the design and tools and techniques for creating them will be discussed. For those wanting to learn to draw the patterns, participants will receive a 50% discount coupon to Lars' pre-recorded tutorials on Teachable with step-by-step instructions to draw along at your own pace.

With Lars Howlett and special guest Tom Vetter

Now more than ever labyrinths are being stretched, twisted, and turned into countless contemporary patterns to better suit a greater variety of settings, intentions, and communities. From the Gossembrot to the Santa Rosa, Dual-Path Heart to Viking Age Horse Trappings Maze*, Contemporary Labyrinths offer endless opportunities and inspiration. Veriditas Faculty member Lars Howlett will guide us through some of these modern marvels as we envision the future of labyrinth design.

The value and need for greater accessible and inclusive designs will be discussed as we look to connect and collaborate with new communities and future generations.
