Gathering attendees can attend a wide variety of workshops, lectures, mini-sessions, and poster presentations. You will not want to miss this unique island retreat at the outdoor learning center of IslandWood!

Help us promote the event - these downloadable flyers can be used at your local labyrinth events, WLD walks and around your community to spread the word about the upcoming Annual Gathering to folks who might be interested in attending.


The Annual Gathering is a casual, public conference spanning three days with special workshops and local tours before and after the main event. It is a time when labyrinth enthusiasts and experts gather from around the world to learn, share, and celebrate labyrinths. The Annual Gathering includes featured speakers, workshops, sales of labyrinth-related products, silent auction, and a wide variety of labyrinths for walking. 

It is a time to meet and network with others who use and love labyrinths, learn new approaches, experience new labyrinth designs, and support the spread of labyrinth wisdom and community around 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. 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.

TLS offers a student registration option for full-time students. As with standard participants, students may register for either the entire Gathering (Friday - Sunday), Saturday-only or pre/post gathering events. These options are not available via online registration, but only by post or email.
