Working with the Labyrinth

Janice is currently volunteering her time with Chicago Lights, an organization dedicated to supporting and meeting the needs of children, youth and adults who are facing the challenges of poverty in Chicago.

For Chicago Lights, labyrinth workshops, mediation training, peace circles and work with the Enneagram were created to help clients reduce the terrible stresses they deal with in their daily lives. More than 100 youths and adults are involved in workshops this summer. Youths from elementary to high school are part of their program.

Janice owns four canvas labyrinths and created the Traveling Labyrinth Workshop to bring walking meditation, and the benefits of spiritual and personal development to a broader audience.

Some examples of Janice’s work with the Labyrinth include:

  • International Coach Federation Chicago Team Building Retreat
  • Elam Davies Social Service Center Labyrinth Talk and Walk
  • TLS Annual Gathering Workshop with the Labyrinth and the Enneagram
  • Labyrinth walks with a variety of organizations, First Presbyterian Church, The Chicago Temple, Bodhi Prem Yoga Center, the Dream Quest Chicago and more!

While living in Canada Janice earned certification with Veriditas and after having made two pilgrimages to Chartres France to walk the labyrinth she earned Advanced Facilitator Certification with Veriditas. Janice is also an Advanced Certified Personality Consultant with the Enneagram, she is a member of the International Enneagram Association and certified in the PeaceMaker Circle technique.
