Gather-Up! Journey to Healing and Wholeness

Gather-Up! Journey to Healing and Wholeness

The 2008 Annual Gathering is approaching and what fun we have planned! This is a time when we gather labyrinth people from around the globe, to learn from each other, share ideas, expand our vision, and celebrate together. We will gather at Simpsonwood, a beautiful retreat center just outside of Atlanta, Georgia, that has installed a permanent outdoor labyrinth since we last gathered there in 2001.

This will be our 10th Annual Gathering and the program is filled with great activities from quiet contemplative labyrinth walks to a fun-filled party celebration. 

Please note, we begin on Friday this year so be sure to check the 2008 Gathering Planned Schedule of Events (.pdf 76K), as you plan your travel.

In addition to the anniversary celebration, an underlying theme will be labyrinths in healthcare. “Journey to Healing and Wholeness” is the title, and the events begin with optional pre-gathering workshops to transition with dowsing, yoga, dance, and inspiration cards, and will close with painting personal canvas labyrinths and a day-long bus tour. In between we will install a new TLS president, listen to the wisdom of founding members and gaze into the future of labyrinths in the global community. In Robert Ferre’s presentation on “Science and Spirit,” we will explore the building and use of labyrinths in hospitals. Rebecca Rodriguez, who introduces the labyrinth to hospice workers across the nation, will lead us on a sacred journey. Global musician Sonam Targee, will set the tone and we will dance and sing together in a grand celebration!

It is not too late to register. Join your friends and meet us at Simpsonwood. See you there!
