The name Veronica came
to our founder in a dream. From the latin, vera iconica, it means
true image, each soul's true image. Knowing ourselves and our
soul's truth is a daring challenge. Veronica Sacred Arts supports
this challenge particularly for girls and women.
We are comprised of three circles working toward new and supportive ways of interacting:
Our "youthful aspect", Veronica Women's Theatre Company, is comprised of 8 (at present) white women who tour with the performances and workshops. The members focus on performing the archetypes from their own inner truth.
Our "mother group", Board of Directors manages the policy and administrative requirements of Veronica Sacred Arts, Inc. We gather monthly to meditate, listen to each other, and attend to our current integrity with our mission.
Our "elders", Advisory Board
of Directors, consists of women and men who hold the universal vision
for a balanced, peaceful, more inclusive world for girls and women.
They offer support and strength when needed.
The company, under its
former name Theatres for the Earth, performed the first version of the
currently produced fairy tale for the Parliament of the World's Religions
in Chicago, 1993. The company re-assembled under the new name in 1996.
Since then, we have given celebrated performances and workshops in the
United Kingdom, and in the US, including a grand performance at The
Sacred Circles Conference, Washington National Cathedral.
Frederica Chapman, Founder/Director, and former psychotherapist, devotes herself now to performance with Veronica Women's Theatre, and to the administration for the organization. Her works were given at the 1991 Earth Summit in Rio de Janiero, and the 1992 Parliament for the World's Religions in Chicago. With Veronica Sacred Theatre, and with The Gateway Workshops, the joy and beauty of the sacred feminine reaches churches, cathedrals, sanctuaries, conferences, schools, and universities worldwide.
