What does it mean to draw the circle wide in your community, taking steps toward those considered “other” and exploring the building of relationships through the common-ground spiritual practice of the labyrinth?
Led by Veriditas Master Teacher Rev. Dr. Kay Mutert, this workshop will focus on the ways the labyrinth has a bridge building and reconciling role in our communities – many of which reflect division, polarity and a lack of understanding of one another. We’ll explore a variety of communities, groups and congregations in which the labyrinth plays an important role in building and sustaining healthy community. The workshop will include instruction, small group discussion, creative reflection, labyrinth walking and meeting several local community leaders who represent communities that are integrating the labyrinth in their contexts in hopeful and healing ways. Including a session led by Rev. Dr. Kathryn McLean, we will engage in how we each can help draw the circle wider in our own communities. This can be taken as a stand-alone day, and also serves as a qualifying workshop for those who wish to become trained Veriditas labyrinth facilitators.

The goal of Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator Training is to prepare people to introduce others to the labyrinth in an articulate, professional and effective way. The training addresses meditative walking in a variety of settings, with a variety of different populations. It is focused primarily on the Eleven Circuit Medieval Labyrinth but is inclusive of all forms. Walking the labyrinth is being embraced as a spiritual practice throughout the Western world mostly because of Veriditas trained facilitators. The Veriditas Facilitator Training — which began in 1997 — remains the most rigorous and comprehensive training offered.
