The Rev. Lauren Artress will give a presentation, “The Labyrinth – Walking a Sacred Path,” on Wednesday, March 14 from 6:45 to 8:00 pm at Trinity Church in Menlo Park. A dinner precedes the talk at 6:15 pm.
Artress, an Episcopal priest whose home parish is Grace Cathedral, is credited with reintroducing the use of the Labyrinth as a spiritual tool into the Christian tradition. She came upon the medieval Labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France in 1991 and replicated it first in canvas form at Grace, which now has a permanent walking path. She founded the non-profit Veridtas in 1995 to further spread the wisdom of the Labyrinth
Attendees will have the opportunity to walk a Labyrinth that’s in the chapel at Trinity or use an outdoor canvas Labyrinth. Those who wish to stay after the presentation for further walking are invited to do so.
The program is open to the wider community. Childcare will be provided; the church appreciates advance registration in order to plan for dinner and childcare.
