2015 Friday Pre-Gathering Workshops

The following Pre-Gathering workshops were offered at the Annual Gathering in October 2015:

FRIDAY MORNING 9:00 am - 12:00 noon ($50 pre-registration required)
Creating A Personal Prayer Labyrinth
with Lisa Gidlow Moriarty

Using imagery and labyrinth walking, participants identify symbols, colors and words that hold personal significance.  We will then each create a small walkable canvas labyrinth to take home, using paints, stamps, stencils, brushes and pure joyful imagination.  No previous art experience needed. All materials provided.
NOTE: An additional art materials fee of $25 will be collected from each participant at the beginning of the workshop. 

Lisa Gidlow Moriarty, professional labyrith maker, artist, spiritual director and advanced labyrinth facilitator, is an internationally recognized presenter with a passion for leading others in use of labyrinths in the spiritual journey. International journeys to sacred sights continuously inform her work as she designs and installs labyrinths for schools, hospitals, churches and individuals. She is a past president of TLS and owner of Paths of Peace in Stillwater, MN. Lisa developed this workshop together with Kimberly Lowell Saward who has presented with Lisa at several previous Gatherings. While Kimberly will not be attending this year, her contributions are nonetheless represented in this workshop.


FRIDAY AFTERNOON 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm ($50 pre-registration required)
SoulCollage® on the LabyrinthSoulCollage card samples

with Carol Maurer, M.Ed.

This unique 3-hour workshop weaves the creation of SoulCollage® cards with the labyrinth. Beginning with an introduction to the SoulCollage® process, a process of creating cards that taps into your intuitive nature allowing for personal and inner exploration, we will walk the labyrinth as we gather images for our card.  There will be time for quiet creation, a reflective labyrinth walk, a short writing and a final group sharing to process the experience. All materials provided.  For more information on SoulCollage® visit

Carol Maurer, M.Ed. is an experiential artist that enjoys weaving connections though her work with yarn, labyrinths, stories and SoulCollage®.  She is inspired by the intermingling of the inner and outer landscapes (mind/body) through the process of SoulCollage®, journaling and the labyrinth. Carol is a studio artist at The Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts and labyrinth coordinator for The Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington Delaware.  Visit Carol's website to view more of her work.
