Note from Kay:  Although early registration is recommended, when I forgot, I have registered at the time of the event and was able to join the event in progress.

The weekly Finger Labyrinth Meditations offered by Veriditas are open to everyone, and people from all around the world have been participating.  It’s a rare opportunity to meet with the worldwide labyrinth community.  Each week’s meditation is led by a different facilitator, and their different approaches and styles are broadening our experience.  Several people from the Northwest have participated each time, and I hope that more people will take advantage of this rare opportunity to experience some top notch labyrinth facilitators.

Re-discovering the Gift of Finger Labyrinths 
by Martha Erickson
From the back cover:

“The importance of using tactile labyrinths comes to life as Martha Erickson shares the wisdom she has gained over many years of teaching finger labyrinth prayer.  This book will offer new ideas, practical suggestions and lots of inspiration.”

Rev. Jill K. H. Geoffrion
author of 7 labyrinth related books

Note from Kay:  Martha Erickson is a personal friend of mine from Minnesota.  Here’s what she says about her finger labyrinth book:

I started using finger Labyrinths after I had facilitator training 20 years ago as I was doing prison ministry besides working as chaplain at a senior care center.  Each needed something to take to their room after a walking session so  I gave them a paper copy at prison and had plastic finger Labyrinths made for care center. I then developed a labyrinth Ministry for walking with foot and fingers.
My book is $20:00 plus $4:00 postage for US and $10:00 for out of country.  \
