Labyrinths are currently experiencing a renaissance in the United States and around the World. The Labyrinths’ ability to quiet the mind and reduce stress serves us well in these modern times. Following the Labyrinth’s path is a walking meditation – for some a welcome alternative to the “sit and be quiet” style of meditation.
While there are already many Labyrinths in and around The Triangle, you may want to build one of your own. A Labyrinth can be laid out in less than an hour and build times depend on the materials you choose to use. Many people find building them as satisfying as walking them.
In this extremely “hands-on” workshop, labyrinth facilitator Karen Birbeck will give a brief intro on the uses and mythology of labyrinth, teach the basics of labyrinth design, and guide the class in constructing a seven-circuit stone labyrinth at Sparkroot Farm!
This workshop will be held outside in the shade of an beautiful hilltop oak grove.
Iced herbal tea will be provided. Dress to keep cool. Breath deeply. Wear comfortable work shoes and bring work gloves.
Come prepared to get your hands dirty and your mind expanded!
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Karen Birbeck has many interests, but none occupy her heart and mind more than Labyrinths. In 2015, she took the plunge and traveled to San Francisco to train as a Labyrinth Facilitator with Veriditas. She is now utilizing her 20+ years of experience teaching small workshops to spread the word about Labyrinths and their ability to affect personal transformation.
Karen plans to spend much more time as a Labyrinth Facilitator and Designer after she retires from being a Project Management Professional. Along with her accomplishment of surviving nearly 40 years in High Tech, Karen is wife of one, mother of 2, grandmother of 2, and a damn fine cook.
