Facilitators are important members of the labyrinth community since they introduce others to the benefits and general protocols of walking a labyrinth. Anyone can become a facilitator. With professional training and support, they can help others become aware of the powers of the labyrinth and assist in making their experiences both positive and enriching.

Facilitator training requires a prerequisite of labyrinth education. The workshop on Saturday, Sacred Paths - Sacred Patterns, is considered an authorized qualifying event. Former attendance at pilgrimages, presented by Veriditas, also qualify.

The Facilitator Training tuition cost of $600 includes instruction, materials, one year follow-up and guidance for Certification.
