Members eNewsletter
At least four times a year, TLS members are rewarded at their inboxes with a copy of the Labyrinth Society e-newsletter. It serves as a means of direct communication with the membership and provides an historical record of the Society.

TLS Member Highlight

2009 brings with it a wave of change on all fronts. As we navigate through changing economic times, ways to reframe situations and find new inspiration are even more important. What better way than turning to the labyrinth? In the quarterly 'Member Feature', we highlight TLS members doing just that - working with labyrinths in a wide variety of dynamic settings and inspirational ways.

To date, we have featured TLS members who have written pages for the resources section of the website about working with the labyrinth in the following settings: schools, retreat settings, churches, universities, and colleges. If you missed those features, we invite you to visit Labyrinths in Places

In the months ahead, you can look forward to hearing about more of our members who have contributed pages to the resources section of the web site. Eventually, we will expand the feature to include the general membership. Stay tuned for these updates on how our membership is fulfilling the TLS mission of serving the global community with education, networking, and opportunities to experience transformation!
