Labyrinth Facilitator Training
Spiritworks Labyrinth Facilitator Training
Saturday, June 20, 2020
1:00 - 4:00PM
with Dr. Patricia D. Brown, Director of Spiritworks, Inc.
This Labyrinth Facilitator Training will prepare you to introduce others to the labyrinth in an articulate, knowledgeable and effective way. The training addresses both meditative walking and ceremonial use. It is focused primarily on the 13-Circuit Medieval Labyrinth but will introduce other forms as well.
Walking the labyrinth is embraced as a spiritual practice by hospitals, hospices, schools, colleges and communities. In Pittsburgh permanent labyrinths can be found at Chatham University, The Waterfront in Homestead, Kearns Spirituality Center, East Liberty Presbyterian Church, Cameron Wellness Center and other locations throughout the region.
Some take this course to deepen their own understanding of the labyrinth walk, others come for their personal spiritual journey, and still others to become a facilitator of labyrinth walks for others. Once youve completed this 3-hour course you will be able to facilitate and offer the portable 40-foot canvas labyrinth to schools, healthcare facilities, faith communities, and other groups.
What will the topics cover?
*The history and symbolism of the labyrinth.
*The use of the labyrinth in various setting for different audiences such as retreats, workshops, conferences, churches, hospices, schools, hospitals, prisons, community parks and centers, special needs individuals, support groups, and recovery groups.
*How to communicate in the language of particular audiences.
*Creating and preparing your presentation for others.
*Using the labyrinth for meditative walking and ceremonial/ritual use.
*How to create a sacred space before, during and following the walk.
*Experiences shared from walking the labyrinth.
*The publicity-side of presenting and hosting the labyrinth.

What is the Labyrinth?
Our 36-foot, expertly painted, canvas labyrinth is copied from the 13th century design found in the Chartres Cathedral, France. We also have a 14 canvas. Both canvas labyrinths are available, indoors or outdoors and can be candlelit. Finger labyrinths are available to those who are unable to walk.
