The first UK based Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator Training and Pre-Qualifying Workshop is in Canterbury in September 2010.
The 'Journeys through the Labyrinth' workshop is an opportunity to learn in depth about the labyrinth and its use as a blueprint for your own journey - journeys through work, study, or major life transitions.
We will explore the history, meaning and impact of labyrinths in our world today, with a focus on reflection, creativity and spiritual development. Lecture, small and large group discussion, labyrinth walking and journaling will shape this day of exploration and deepening.
The workshop is led by Lauren Artress - the Founder and Creative Director of Veriditas, an Episcopal priest and licensed as a psychotherapist in the State of California.
The workshop is open to all, but also serves as the pre-qualifying workshop for the labyrinth facilitator training weekend at the University of Kent on 4 & 5 September.
The ‘Journeys through the Labyrinth’ workshop also serves as the pre-requisite ‘pre-qualifying workshop’ for the 2-Day Labyrinth Facilitator Training at the University of Kent on 4 & 5 September 2010. The facilitator training is hosted by the University of Kent, but organised by Veriditas, a non-profit organization in the USA specializing in this field.
The vision of Veriditas is to activate and facilitate the transformation of the human spirit and their work centers around the Labyrinth Experience as a personal practice for healing and growth, a tool for community building, an agent for global peace and a metaphor for life.
The training will be led by their new Master Teacher, Di Williams. Di is an Anglican minister, an adult educator and is currently Chaplain to the University of Edinburgh. In 2008 she was awarded an MBE for services to Higher Education, including her interfaith and labyrinth work in Chaplaincy.
Spaces are limited and there is a separate Veriditas application process.
