Labyrinth Speakers: The Labyrinth as Spiritual Tool

Labyrinth Speakers: The Labyrinth as Spiritual Tool

Join the Trinity Labyrinth Guild as we discover the benefits of walking the labyrinth and how the labyrinth works as a spiritual tool – with internationally recognized labyrinth and sacred geometry pioneer, Richard Feather Anderson. During the evening, he will explain how to engage in a seven-chakra and Holy Grail meditation that you can use the next time you walk a classic labyrinth, which can help you live in a heart-centered way. We will conclude with a question-and-answer session. Suggested donation: $15, sliding scale. Questions? Contact: Heidi Franklin at

His writings have been published in Utne Reader, Yoga Journal and hundreds of other magazines and seven books. Learn more at
