2016 Deadline: Call for Workshop Proposals Closes March 1, 2016

Calling all labyrinth enthusiasts! Do you have a burning desire to share your work? Need a little encouragement to go public with it? Now is the time to act! The request for presentations for this year’s Gathering, “Diverse Journeys on a Common Path: Building Community through the Labyrinth,” closes on March 1, 2016.

Picture it: Leading a workshop, lecture, or experiential exercise based on the creative and astounding things you’ve been doing with labyrinths! Come on, you know you love the spotlight, or at the very least can be encouraged to step into that divine glow. And what could be better than sharing with a wonderful bunch of fellow labyrinth lovers? Not much!

Take advantage of this opportunity and submit your proposals for workshops, lectures, posters, and mini sessions, and join us at this year’s Annual Gathering, November 10-12, at the beautiful St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas.

The forms and process have been designed to make the experience of submitting a proposal easy and user friendly. You’ll see options to submit proposals for workshops, lectures, posters, and a short presentation category called "Mini Sessions." Each one will be reviewed "blind" by the selection committee, i.e. without the names of the presenters attached to them, which ensures that selections are made based on the quality of the proposal.

A short description (or "abstract") of each accepted presentation will also be featured on the TLS members-only website after the event. This provides presenters a way of gaining recognition for their work and offers members an opportunity to review presentations. Leaders of accepted presentations also have the option of submitting a PDF synopsis of PowerPoint slides for publication on the TLS members-only website after the Gathering.

We look forward to receiving your proposals, and are eager to see the brilliant innovations TLS members have been pioneering in the field of labyrinth work. Please submit your presentations for review by the March 1, 2016 deadline.
