WISDOM STORIES ON THE PATH:
STORYTELLING OUR WAY THROUGH THE LABYRINTH
WITH THE REVEREND DR. LAUREN ARTRESS AND CYNTHIA JAMES
Constantly bombarded by information and overloaded with knowledge, what we lack is wisdom. We need wisdom to grasp the heart of the issues that face us in both our personal lives as well our culture. So, can we “learn” wisdom? Yes, through the ancient art of storytelling…
Lauren Artress and Cynthia James will lead us on the path of reflection on our lives through storytelling, song, discussion and writing prompts to stir our own personal stories. Drawing from the rich wisdom traditions around the world. these morning seminars will nurture wisdom through the labyrinth’s four-fold process: Remember as we are blessed, Release what no longer serves us, Receive guidance along the path and Return to our Ground of Being. Together we will create a wisdom community that connects, nourishes and deepens our capacity to evoke wisdom in our lives.
What better place to nurture wisdom than the sacred space of Chartres Cathedral. We begin with a reception to meet each other followed by an opening ritual and orientation to the program. Then each day, there is a morning seminar, a small processing group, and an experience of what Chartres has to offer. Tuesday evening holds a unique Pilgrim’s Walk through the Crypt of Chartres Cathedral, on Wednesday, an orientation to the labyrinth and a once in a life-time candlelit labyrinth walk with medieval music on the Chartres Labyrinth, on Thursday a tour of the Cathedral itself, and a closing celebratory dinner on Friday.
