Walking the Dream
Using the Labyrinth in Everyday Life
with Lisa Steckley
September 5-8, 2013
The Labyrinth is an archetypical symbol that has been used throughout the world for centuries. Today we are experiencing a renaissance of this powerful symbol as more and more labyrinths are built in cities and villages around the globe. A reason for this resurgence is that we have come to 'recognize' this pattern at a very deep level and intuitively sense its transcendent nature.
Explore the mystery of the labyrinth.
Distinguished from a maze that is built to trick and confuse, the labyrinth is a single path that leads us to the center. It is a powerful metaphor for our Spiritual Journey. While we understand that we will not get lost in the labyrinth, there are times that we find that we lose track of where we are. This temporary disorientation creates an opening for our intellect to become still and move beyond ordinary thought into a meditative, intuitive, creative state of being.
Learn to move deeply into the transformational power of the labyrinth.
This retreat invites you into various direct experiences with the labyrinth. We will delve into day dreams and night dreams to build a foundation for the imagination to engage with the labyrinth. As we walk our dreams, we will find new vistas opening in our consciousness. You will learn different ways to use the labyrinth, incorporating playfulness, story, metaphor and movement. Gain a renewed sense of Self and leave with practical tools to re-engage your intuitive nature.
Chartres Cathedral, Chartres, France
Lisa Steckley's journey with the labyrinth began in 1991 after reading "Walking a Sacred Path" by Dr. Lauren Artress. Lisa's imagination was sparked and she found herself seeking labyrinths as a sort of scavenger hunt in her hometown, Portland, Oregon, around the country and around the world.
In 2004 she completed Veriditas labyrinth facilitator training in Chartres, France, home of a remarkable 13th century labyrinth. Veriditas is an organization based in San Francisco that is dedicated to supporting the use of labyrinths globally. Lisa now enjoys the opportunity of working with Lauren Artress and Veriditas on various labyrinth based programs in Europe, especially at Chartres. As her passion for the labyrinth continues to grow, she conducts labyrinth workshops, retreats and seminars, facilitates labyrinth walks and is an active member of Trinity Cathedral Labyrinth Guild in Portland. Lisa and her husband, Scott, live in Portland, Oregon and on Orcas Island, Washington.
