Freeport, Bahamas - On March 20, a prayerful meditation and walk for Japan took place at the Garden of the Groves on the Grand Bahama Labyrinth. Mrs. Barbara Chester, Founder of the GB Labyrinth subsequently received and wants to share a beautiful, inspiring and very generative email from Yuka Saionji from the Goi Peace Foundation, who lives in Tokyo with her family.


Thank you all...so much, for the continuous loving support and messages. It means so much to us!!!


Every day, when I listen to the news, I couldn't stop crying. It's so easy to be trapped and caught up in this situation. Watching the devastating scenes over and over again, creating fear and more negative and threatening information towards the future.  


Yet my parents and I started talking, saying that we NEED a positive vision for our future. Yes, a whole town vanished. But it now means we can create a new beautiful town from scratch! We need a vision that people can be excited about, to want to work towards, to see the bright possibility that we can all create. We don't want to re-build the same exact town we had before. We want something better, something more beautiful, sustainable...a model that focuses on the 4S's - Science, Spirituality, System and Sustainability. We can now from scratch create a city that represents a new way of living.


We, of Veriditas, are standing with Yuka, her family, and all of the people of Japan, to support the emergence of beautiful, wholesome, safe and sustainable cities throughout Japan and throughout our world.

Veriditas is a 501 c3 not-for-profit organization incorporated in the State of California in 1995 by Lauren Artress. It is dedicated to introducing people to the healing, meditative powers of the labyrinth. The vision of Veriditas is to activate and facilitate the transformation of the human spirit. The work of Veriditas centers around the Labyrinth Experience as a personal practice for healing and growth, a tool for community building, an agent for global peace and a metaphor for life.

Veriditas is a word used by Hildegard of Bingen to signify the greening of the human soul. It signifies the divine power within Nature and all human beings, combined with the human ability of discernment.
