  • 19 Feb 2022
  • 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM (EST)
  • The Draper Mercantile and Traing Co. 3054 Greenbriar Rd. Draper, VA 24324

Join us for a day combining beauty, magic, and mystery! This one-day workshop invites participants to learn about the labyrinth and experience the awareness of how we are each in relationship with everything and everyone around us. We are invited to use our senses rather than intellect. The labyrinth provides the perfect space in which to do that!  

This in-person event is a Veriditas Approved Qualifying Workshop for attending a Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator Training. We recommend following CDC guidelines regarding Covid protocol: If you are completely vaccinated, masks are not required. Otherwise, while indoors, we recommend wearing masks to provide kind safety for oneself and others.

Activities will include:

  • An opening ritual in which we construct an altar (Please bring a small object that symbolizes why you are here.)

  • The experience of Presence through a multi-sensory exercise of Nature Bathing (no actual bath tubs involved!)
  • Writing to process and concretize what has been learned and experienced (can be quite brief)
  • A labyrinth walk
  • Creating your own simple art project (need not be artistically talented!)
  • A closing ritual to synthesize our day

You will receive:

  • A beautiful environment at Draper, Virginia, in the glorious New River Valley
  • A basic introduction to the labyrinth that prepares you for facilitator training if desired
  • A simple journal
  • An organizing folder
  • Art materials for the project
  • Writing prompts, examples, and assistance
  • Time to network

“Walking the labyrinth immediately takes us into a process world where we can see between the lines of linear thought through to our imagination and intuition.” 

—Lauren Artress

—Christine Favreau
