About The Labyrinth Society

Welcome to The Labyrinth Society’s Website!   

I am excited to be the new president of The Labyrinth Society, an organization I have belonged to since 2008, serving as a volunteer–on the board and several committees for at least half of that time!  The Labyrinth Society is a diverse community of labyrinth enthusiasts and we welcome all who create, use, and experience labyrinths.  Our website has a wealth of information about labyrinths, and we hope you will find what you seek.  We are committed to improving the functionality of our website and the World Wide Labyrinth Locator. We have one of the best labyrinth resource libraries and links to many tools and sites for research as well as for personal growth and learning.  Our main Facebook group (free to join) has over 17,000 members and is very active with daily posts.

TLS is recognized as a 501(c)(3) and is (super)powered by many volunteers who give hours of service and monetary donations because of their love of labyrinths and this organization.  The volunteers and donations make it possible for us to sponsor programs and reach out to the greater community.  Members’ support makes it possible for events like World Labyrinth Day, virtual Monthly Community Meetings, and our in person Annual Gathering.

Gaining membership in TLS is simple and when you choose to join you are becoming part of an organization that is more than a club or social group.  It is more like a family and we are making a difference and ready to welcome you!  If you just found this website, you may have found your kinsfolk and kindred spirits. If you’re not a member yet, please join us!  When you do, I hope you will find, as I did, that the biggest gift labyrinths and TLS can give you are the friendships and relationships that are formed.  I’ve made friends at TLS Gatherings as well as through email correspondence and within our many Facebook groups. 

I’ve accepted this leadership role that I could not have imagined fifteen years ago. Looking back over the years since joining TLS, I can see how much I have grown, learned, and experienced all because of belonging to this group.  I look forward to working with The Labyrinth Society’s members, volunteers, board of directors, and executive director and always giving my best.  The Board of Directors is a working board, and we take our positions seriously and to heart.  Maybe you would like to pursue a volunteer position, too!  The TLS mission is, “to support all those who create, maintain and use labyrinths, and to serve the global community by providing education, networking, and opportunities to experience transformation.”  I am proud to be a member of TLS and I am proud of its growth and accomplishments.  This year is TLS’s twenty-fifth anniversary, and we have become a global community with members from all over the world. 

Thank you for sharing the path!

Beth Langley, President

Core Values

We choose to conduct the business of The Labyrinth Society in alignment with our Core Values:

  • Integrity: We are heart-centered, truthful, keep our word, and operate with candor.
  • Respect: We create a safe environment where all people and points of view are honored.
  • Community: We operate the Society in a circle and continuously build connections among us.
  • Diversity: We embrace our differences in all of their manifestations.
  • Freedom: We encourage all forms of expression and will not try to limit the labyrinth’s possibilities.
  • Creativity: We delight in the fruits of our imagination, intuition, and inspiration.
  • Empowerment: We enable each other to be our authentic selves and strive to delegate authority.
  • Learning: We promote education, networking, and research
  • Spirituality: We honor the labyrinth for its enhancement of our connection to Spirit, the Earth, and the Global Community.
  • Trust: We trust the process of the labyrinth.

We use the circle to:

  • conduct the business of The Labyrinth Society,
  • remind us of the unity we share with all life,
  • create a safe and nurturing environment that encourages open and full participation, and
  • provide a heart-centered place for conflicts to be resolved and ideas to flourish.

Leadership Philosophy

The Board of Directors is the governing body of the organization. It has the authority to delegate the management and direction of the organization to the Executive Committee and to the committees appointed by the President or designated by the Board.

Like the labyrinth that we honor, we have adopted the circle as our leadership model. We think of ourselves as a leader-full group and use the energy of the circle to conduct all of our business. Our meetings are held in the round. This creates a culture of communication and cooperation amongst the leadership. The Executive Committee, the Board of Directors and the working committees each operates as a circle.

It is our goal that the circles of influence within the organization be an inter-connected web, much like the circuits of the labyrinth, that continually bring us into contact with each other so that we can have the benefit of sharing our questions and our ideas. We are committed to using the power of the labyrinth and the energy of the circle for the highest good of all and we model this in all that we do.
