Many gifts have come into my life through the labyrinth. The adventure I am on now is in La Falda, Argentina with five board members, our Veriditas ED, a labyrinth builder, spouses and friends. A bit of background: the Board of Veriditas through Christine Katzenmeyer initiated a project called The Legacy Labyrinth. On our online auction the Board volunteered to build a labyrinth anywhere in the world. They imagined some retreat center, church, or City Park would bid from Connecticut, Texas or Tennessee. No one expected a call from Enrique and Kristin Dura at the Alla Arriba Retreat Center in La Falda, Argentina! So after much planning on Christine’s part, here we are in a lovely mountain village of La Falda to put a labyrinth in the town square with the mayor firmly behind it!

After a long three-legged trip we arrived jet lagged but in good spirits. An old fifteen-seater van picked six of us up, the second group of six to arrive the same day. Dinner and a good night’s rest make miracles but nothing prepared me for today’s gifts: the beauty, the warmth of the people and the star lit Southern hemisphere.
