The Dragonfly and The Labyrinth: A Journey to the Inner Landscape of Soul

Lauren Artress, Mary Hamilton and Barbara Susan Booth

April 10, 2016 - April 15, 2016

Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Labyrinth-2011_edited-1Participants in this workshop will learn about and experience the interface between psyche and soma, the soul and the body, and how the body/soul matures in cyclical patterns and rhythms. Embodied essence, experienced in the archetypal pattern of the Labyrinth, develops along an invisible spiral rather than a single linear path.

Exploring the sensory nature modeled in the dragonfly’s pattern of transformation, participants will focus on the moment-to-moment experience of the soul’s changing landscape. Engaging tools to befriend our true selves, we may uncover an inner tenderness of compassion for self and others. This enlivening process reveals the unfolding steps of one’s life journey.

Through their combined leadership, Lauren Artress, Mary Hamilton and Barbara Susan Booth will invite participants to join them on a creative journey through dream gathering, morning talks, inwardly inspired movement, art, poetry, dance, ritual and labyrinth walking. All is peppered with humor.

The Dragonfly and the Labyrinth, co-led by Lauren and Mary along with Barbara Susan Booth, ventures into new work after a five-year hiatus. In 2010 the three worked together to offer Embodying Wisdom: The Spirituality of the Labyrintha workshop in Guelph that was also a course credit with Wisdom University in California.

This workshop combines Lauren’s international experience teaching the Labyrinth and Leadership work with BodySoul Rhythms®. Mary’s work brings together her co-creation and teaching of the BodySoul Rhythms® Program and her new work captured in her book The Dragonfly Principle. Barbara’s work brings together her leadership work with BodySoul Rhythms® and her vast experience in facilitation and the use of visual arts in opening the creative process.
