Join us for a half-day workshop of lecture, labyrinth walking, and inner discovery as we explore the myths and legends of the labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France and the Camino Santiago Compostela in Spain—two sites of healing and hope throughout the centuries. We'll explore the rich legends of the pilgrim paths of Europe, learning some of the devotional songs collected by Jewish, Islamic and Christian scribes from the courts of the 14th century King Alfonso the Wise. Our day will include labyrinth walks, music with Catherine Braslavsky from France, and an interfaith candlelit Evensong as we offer poetry, chants and prayers for peace.
Part One: 1-3:30 pm: Workshop
Kayleen Asbo, PhD, has led pilgrimages to sacred sites in Europe for the past decade. She will guide us as we explore the myths of the labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral and the Camino Santiago Compostela—two sites of healing and hope—and concluding with our own labyrinth walk led by Lea Goode Harris accompanied by live music.
Part Two: 4-6 pm: Evensong
On the Anniversary of the Tree of Life Synagogue shootings, we come together for a Memorial Evensong. Renowned musician Catherine Braslavsky from Paris will lead us in pilgrim songs, cellist Erik Levins will perform "Kaddish", and interfaith arts activists Doug Von Koss, Richard Page, Paloma Pavel and Diane Frank will offer poems and chants for peace in this ceremony of remembrance and peacemaking.
