Second QUARTER 2019 e-News

Dear Friends,

We have been hard at work implementing some behind the scenes technology changes to help streamline our payment system. The new system will enable you to securely store your credit card information if you choose to do so (this system has the highest level of PCI compliant security available to safely store your information). This will speed the checkout process through our Veriditas website, and also enables monthly payment of VIA membership dues as a membership option.

We have also made it possible for you to support Veriditas in a new way: you now have the option of covering the credit card fees associated with any event registration payment through our website. Each year Veriditas covers over $20,000 of credit card fees, so by ensuring that the "cover the credit card fee" box is checked when you register, you will help us mitigate those costs. 

We have a couple of staff announcements to make:

  • We’re delighted to welcome back Jenny Slama who will once again be assisting us with our 2019 Annual Online Auction and various other projects along the way. 
  • And, we have a name change announcement to make: Our Website, Communications and Marketing Manager, Anne Bull has resumed her maiden name of Moore (No more Bull!) and has changed her name formally to Annika Anne Moore. Don’t worry, she will still answer to Anne for those who have known her as such forever!

We are so grateful for your continued involvement with Veriditas and look forward to seeing you at a labyrinth event soon!

Dawn Matheny
Executive Director

Legacy Labyrinth Partner Update

"Imagine a constellation of Legacy Labyrinths around the world, each connected to one another energetically to bring peace and healing to all who walk their path" 


Now you can carry that energetic experience with you everyday by wearing a hand-blown glass pendant containing the materials from all of the global Legacy Labyrinths.  

The Legacy Labyrinth Project (LLP), has built and connected labyrinths in France, Canada, Argentina, and the United States with future builds in Haiti, and Africa in 2020. Over the course of the last four years, the LLP has gathered physical materials of each Legacy Labyrinth (rose quartz from Argentina, native grasses from Saskatchewan, hand cut pavers from Ohio, sea glass from California, and flint from Chartres, France) and has buried these materials around the outside of each labyrinth to form a base for a physical, energetic connection.  Additionally, the exact materials are also hand-placed and visible in a hand-blown glass cylinder pendant adorned and sealed with an amber glass spiral made by a local artist. 

This network of intentional peace and healing is based on the science that creation is the result of the movement and flow of energy. Energy is the capacity to produce an effect.  Yet for energy to flow, there must be a ground point. There must be something in our environment which pulls on the energy.  In the Legacy Labyrinth Project,  it is the labyrinth walkers and the materials buried around each labyrinth that provide the energy and consciousness.  And now you, our LLP Pendant Partner, can directly connect to and impact this energy as well. 

Because each pendant is hand-made and unique, we have commissioned only 100 pendants at this time.  If our mission calls to you and you would like to join us as an LLP Pendant Partner, please send an email to our Executive Director at

Canvas Labyrinth For Sale!

36-foot octagonal (8-sided) #12 untreated cotton duck canvas Chartres labyrinth.  Natural-colored canvas (off-white) with the pattern painted in purple.  Created by the St. Louis Labyrinth project in 1999.  The pattern is called “the Veriditas variation”, with the labryses expanded in width to be the same as a path width, giving room for people to step off the path and get out of the flow of traffic if they wish.  The spaces between the petals are filled in, giving more weightiness and balance to the center.  Used approximately 12 times, so the canvas is in pristine condition.  The canvas is in three sections which have Velcro to hold them together when in use. The seams and Velcro are vertical and parallel with the entrance paths.  Includes a 45-gallon Rubbermaid plastic container with wheels at one end and handles at both ends.  Also includes 3 individual canvas bags for ease of transportation, e.g. putting them in the trunk of a car rather than loading the very large plastic container in a vehicle. 

Price:  $2500 + shipping costs to your location. For more info, please email: Jean Daniels
