Labyrinth Pilgrimage: Walking With Trees & Celtic Practice (via Zoom)
April 14, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$60.00
Join us for this two-session online labyrinth retreat on April 14th & 21st. We welcome Barrie Gibby, who engages participants in a deeper understanding of the labyrinth as a tool for healing and renewal as well as a companion on the journey to the divine within. Partnering Celtic Spirituality with the sacredness of trees, this labyrinth experience embodies our prayers, reawakens our hearts, and honors the feminine creative spirit.
The Celtic culture highly reveres the sacredness of all beings in balanced relationship. Trees especially are a profound part of that bondedness of harmonious life. As pilgrims in these uncertain times, we will explore life phases of trees and women, then walk (with our fingers!) among the four quadrants of the medieval labyrinth, shifting our focus to the vigilant path of a just “tree community”.
You are invited to an online embodied journey that includes rituals, journal prompts, the arts, contemplative labyrinth walks and expanded imaginings. Downloadable labyrinth designs can be followed with a finger or a stylus. Resources sent in advance. Open to all.
Dates: Thursdays, April 14 & 21, 2022.
Facilitator: Barrie Carter Gibby works on the creative edge between the branches of words and movement expression. An educator, social justice activist, accomplished pianist, theater director, and labyrinth facilitator, she facilitates retreats to an international audience on a variety of themes. As a member of the Veriditas Faculty (Worldwide Labyrinth Project), Veriditas Council and an Advanced Certified Labyrinth facilitator, Barrie finds sacred spaces everywhere.
Cost: $60. Sessions will be recorded for those with schedule conflicts.

This workshop is a natural extension of our programming, as RCWMS has been using its own 40’ x 40’ canvas labyrinth since 1998.
