TLS Annual Gathering
Join us for our next scheduled Annual Conference Gathering:
November 14-16, 2014, at the Duncan Center in Delray Beach, Florida
The Annual Gathering is a casual, conference-style setting that spans several days. It is a time when labyrinth enthusiasts and experts gather from around the world for a time to learn, share, and celebrate the use of labyrinths. The Annual Gathering includes featured speakers, workshops, sales of labyrinth-related products, Silent Auction, and lots of labyrinths. It is a time to meet and network with others who use and love labyrinths, learn new techniques, try new labyrinth designs, and support the spread of labyrinths across the world. The Gathering also includes the annual business meeting of The Labyrinth Society, where members are elected to the Board of Directors and have input into the activities of the organization. It is a time when you can have lunch with a labyrinth expert from another continent, try your hand at building a labyrinth, or shop for unique items not available anywhere else. The location and theme for the Annual Gathering changes each year, allowing us to visit many regions.
Here on these pages you will find all of the Gathering specifics from our 2013 Gathering. This will give a flavor of what you might expect.
In early 2014, new information about the 2014 Gathering will be posted here, including the Call for Workshop Proposals. In the meantime, you can download a flyer about the 2014 gathering to share at labyrinth events and with family and friends.
