The University and the Labyrinth
A Reflective Journey
Dr Jan Sellers first encountered the labyrinth in 2007 whilst on a search for joy and creativity in learning. It became a shared journey of discovery, an unexpected and complex labyrinth path. In 2008, her own university (Kent, UK) built the beautiful Canterbury Labyrinth; in 2010, Veriditas held its first UK facilitator training at Kent. In this webinar we'll hear the unique story of the Canterbury Labyrinth, consider the metaphor of journey in an academic context and explore the creative potential of labyrinths in university settings.
Jan is an Associate Tutor at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, UK. She is an advanced Veriditas facilitator, accredited to lead Veriditas pre-qualifying workshops, and is co-author of Working with the Labyrinth: Paths for Exploration (with Ruth Sewell and Di Williams, eds). Her new book, Learning with the Labyrinth: Creating Reflective Space in Higher Education (co-authored with Bernard Moss) shares experiences from 30 contributors and seven countries.
