An Abundance NC DIY Sustainability Workshop with Karen Birbeck
Saturday, October 17, 9am-12pm
Located at the Plant at 220 Lorax Lane, Pittsboro, NC.

Take a walk on an ancient path without leaving Pittsboro! Learn how to build a link to millions of people of all cultures, places, and times. In this workshop we’ll explore the history, design, and use of Labyrinths.
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.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Karen Birbeck has many interests, but none occupy her heart and mind more than Labyrinths. This year, 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 1.5, and a damn fine cook.
