Meanderings of River Wisdom on the Labyrinth, a Veriditas Approved Qualifying workshop with Barrie Gibby, Veriditas Faculty, and Lynn Karegeannes, Expressive Arts Facilitator

Flowing with the wisdom teachings of the River, this in-person day retreat honors the sacredness of river waters and the synchronicities of life phases mirrored on the labyrinth. As we wander on the path of life, there’s a likeness to water in its tidal rhythm – releasing and rising, swirling and calming, healing and renewing, as well as purifying and destroying. In tandem with the Celtic imagination, this day celebrates that meandering path through river songs, poetry, expressive arts and mandala-making, rituals and symbology that embrace the constancy of ever-changing life cycles, culminating in a labyrinth walk.

What river songs flow in your heart? How are the images of river life phases manifested through the arts and embodied on the labyrinth quadrants? What gifts emerge from the river near you? How can the river reflect who we are and encourage our river activism?
