Our featured speakers were Aaron Wright, a Southwest area rock art expert, and Agnes Barmettler, visual artist from Switzerland who has worked extensively with the Hopi in Arizona.

The featured speaker's presentations were video recorded and these recordings are now available for sale on the TLS website.

On Saturday evening we experienced creative story weaving with professional storyteller Kathy Shimpock and colleagues from the South Mountain Storytelling Institute. 

The Labyrinth Society 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, break-out sessions, sales of labyrinth-related products, silent auction, and a wide variety of labyrinths for walking.

 The Annual Gathering provides opportunities 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 Annual Gathering 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.
