Veriditas Certified Facilitator Elise Lewis will give a brief history and introduction to the labyrinth and will facilitate the walk.
According to Veriditas, an organization that promotes labyrinths world-wide, they are used to “quiet the mind, recover balance in life and encourage meditation, insight, self-reflection, stress reduction and to discover innovation and celebration. They are open to people as an interfaith, cross cultural blueprint for well-being. The practice of labyrinth walking integrates the body with the mind & mind with the spirit.”
