FOUR DAY LABYRINTH EVENT IN PORTLAND
Finding Center: Using the Labyrinth for Integration and Balance is the theme of a four day labyrinth event March 8-11. Sponsored by the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral Labyrinth Guild and held at the cathedral, three varied programs feature labyrinth expert and master teacher Jo Ann Mast of Boulder, Colorado.
On Friday, March 8th at 7:30 p.m. Mast will present a public lecture discussing current neuroscientific research revealing a host of positive brain and nervous system changes such as the balancing effect meditative labyrinth walking has on the human nervous system. Admission to the lecture is $10.
Mast will facilitate an experiential workshop using body movement and various labyrinth patterns to achieve personal centering and balance on Saturday, March 9th from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Registration is required for the Saturday workshop, which includes lunch. For registration and additional information refer to veriditas.org/calendar.
An opportunity for further engagement with the labyrinth will be presented in an advanced two day training for those wishing to become labyrinth facilitators. The training will be held on Sunday, March 10th from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Monday, March 11th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The workshop will prepare participants to introduce others to the labyrinth and to facilitate labyrinth events in a multitude of settings. Tuition for this event includes refreshments and meals. To register, see www.veriditas.org/calendar.
Guest presenter Jo Ann Mast is associated with Veriditas, a non-profit labyrinth organization founded by the Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress. The mission of Veriditas is to connect people to the labyrinth through workshops, retreats and pilgrimages. Mast is the first Veriditas master teacher certified to teach the organization’s exclusive educational programs. Her activities include lectures and consultations with faith communities, universities, seminaries, hospitals, and community organizations of all kinds in both the U.S. and Canada.
Labyrinth walking at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral began in early 1997 when a canvas labyrinth was acquired. Two years later the current inlaid labyrinth of native woods was installed in the floor of Kempton Hall. It is one of a handful of inlaid wood labyrinths in the world.

- walking a labyrinth
- This Blog is for people looking for an outdoor labyrinth to walk in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. These Events are outdoors, on the foreshore of the ocean, so they are weather permitting events. Please check my Blog for Event day confirmation when weather might be an issue. Walking a Labyrinth is like accepting an invitation to pray, meditate, contemplate, dream, celebrate or play; a place to find inspiration, satisfy a curiosity, examine metaphor, mythology or simply, a place to explore liminal space: a 'betwixt and between' place. . . Labyrinths are drawn on the foreshore, betwixt the nearshore and the backshore, between the low and high water marks to present liminal space as a physical location. Labyrinths may also be drawn during liminal time: dusk or dawn and/or solstice or equinox. Victor W Turner has described liminality as "a fructile chaos, a storehouse of possibilities, not a random assemblage but a striving after new forms and structures, a gestation process." My vision is that when you walk a labyrinth on the foreshore, you will access liminal space. For information please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
