ADDITIONAL WORKSHOP PICTURES:
MEXICO - Virginia was sponsored by La Casa del Astrologo, SC of Mexico City, Mexico and took the Labyrinth Experience to the Hacienda De San Francisco Cuadra near Taxco, a mountainous city outside of Mexico City, Mexico where she gave a workshop using an outdoor Labyrinth built by Drunvalo Melchizedek and the ©Grail Goddess Labyrinth (See picture at top of page).
COSTA RICA - After the workshop in Mexico, Virginia was sponsored by the Iriria Center near San Pedro, and met with the three current Labyrinth owners. Combining group ceremony with group intention she organized four workshops. One was given on this outdoor labyrinth at the Center which the owner, Jan Hurwitch, has laid out with volcanic rock and has a beautiful ancient fossil center stone surrounded by water, and the other days, we used the indoor ©Grail Goddess Labyrinth.
CANADA - Peaceful Endeavours has given workshops in Fergus, Guelph, Niagara On The Lake, Niagara Falls, Toronto and Welland, Ontario. Caraquet, New Brunswick, hosted by the Wellness Center there run by Rose Marie Chamberland, Anne Godin, and as a side note, visited Nelson, B.C. and walked a labyrinth in the middle of a downtown street!
MEXICO - Another group, just outside of Juarez, Hosted by Sonia, came together to create ceremonies on the labyrinth, calling in the ancestors and doing journey work and meditations. Forming community to walk the labyrinth to connect into their cultural beliefs. Everyone had profound visions and combined Shamanism with the Goddess work.
SCOTLAND - In the Sacred Highlands, North of Edinburgh in the valley of Aberfeldy, we met and created a safe place to heal, communicate with the land and ourselves. We also visited some sacred circles, and climbed up a mountain to do another
"circle" ceremony. Hosts Barry & Theresa Dunford do a wonderful job of raising consciousness. See their website in the "LINKS" section.
WORKSHOP SPACE REQUIREMENTS
We will bring our Workshop to your home, office, store, business, school, place of worship, institution or cultural organization to educate and offer insight on how to use a labyrinth for fun, team building, improvement of mental and physical health, or for personal growth and development.
All you need is an indoor space that is approximately 12 ft x 15ft (366.0 cm x 457.2 cm) to accommodate the portable labyrinth, and we will do the rest. The workshop is divided into two parts. Educational and experiential. Includes hands on experience with finger labyrinths, and culminates in the participants taking their own personal walk on a labyrinth. It can be held in the morning, afternoon or evening any day of the week.
We will also help you design a distribution flyer or provide you with our template.
Your Facilitator, Dr. Virginia LoneSky, has been working with communities since 1988, and has been a speaker at the Annual Labyrinth Society Conference. She travels extensively and has presented this information in three languages in North America and Europe.
She is one of the North American, Central Regional Representatives of the International Labyrinth Society, and works with communities all over the world to educate people about the practical, scientific, and metaphysical aspects of labyrinths.
If requested, she will also incorporate her Shamanic training, extensive
insight and experience, to guide all who attend into opening
up the Labyrinth as an experiential delight, that can be
felt on multiple levels. The group dynamics always creates an unique
and unforgettable experience for each person.

"HEART OF CHARTRES"
PERSONAL PORTABLE LABYRINTH
Dream Designer: Robert Ferré
Artist: Kristy Dedrick - Layout Assisted by Judy Hopen
Style: Adaptation of Chartres Cathedral
Labyrinth Size: 12 ft x 12 ft
Color: Dark Purple - Actual One Owned by Peaceful Endeavours
Requires 12ft x 12ft or (366.0 cm x 366.0 cm) Indoor Space
Used for Individual and Group Walks
DESCRIPTION: Originated also in a dream by Robert Ferré. Created in his St. Louis, Missouri studio, he calls this the "Heart of Chartres" because the pattern consists of the five, inner, left-side paths of the Chartres pattern, which are then mirrored on the right side. He has stylized the petals and outer half circles. Even then, the proportions are similar to the large Chartres as in each quadrant of the original pattern there are seven turns and an average of 28 lunations
(7 x 4 = 28). In the Personal Labyrinth, each quadrant has three turns and 12 lunations
(3 x 4 = 12).
