We have a simple structure - a Council elected by members and a group of volunteers known as Regional Representatives who help coordinate activities in their local area. Our past Council carriers are asked to join our Wisdom Keepers C, so that their wisdom is not lost, and we can ask advice at any time.
If you want to contact any of the Council carriers individually, please use the firstname.lastname@example.org address with the specific person's name in the Subject line, and it will be forwarded to the relevant person.
Julie's professional career spans over four decades as a para-professional engineer, both in England and Australia, specialising in Total Quality Management, Change Management and the development of workforce skills and competencies.
Julie knows that creating sustainable learning or growth begins with a path of curiosity to build a bridge of understanding between our head and our heart.
Choosing to walk a different path after the sudden death of her mother then discovering the Labyrinth on a journey on Glastonbury
Tor Julie now runs her own business as a heart-based Equine Facilitated Learning Practitioner accredited in Adventures in Awareness™ invitational Approach.
Julie is also a Licensed HeartMath® certified mentor/coach, a mixed-media artist, and a Veriditas Certified Labyrinth Facilitator.
Julie’s path is one of continuous learning, growth, and contribution - turning her inner learning into outer service.
Mark Healy has designed many unique processes to explore the Labyrinth. Over the years he has brought thousands of people together and guided groups and individuals in an experience of the Labyrinth's powers of transformation.
Mark's passion for designing and creating Labyrinths started over 20 years ago. Since then he has trained with world leaders in Labyrinth facilitation and building including Dr Lauren Artress and Robert Ferre. Mark has created hundreds of Labyrinths all over the world while expressing himself as a Horticulturalist, Landscaper, Builder, Group Facilitator and Artist. He has led many retreats where the Labyrinth becomes the centre of the ceremonial and ritual space. His love of the sacred is expressed fully at these times.
Joy has been intrigued with labyrinths since first walking a New Year's Eve labyrinth in Paddington Uniting Church in Sydney, 1997, and in 2014 installed a labyrinth in a public park in her home town of Armidale after 4 years of negotiating with the local council.
She enjoys being able to contribute her technical expertise to help the ALN grow and flourish, and is excited by the diverse and marvellous labyrinth initiatives undertaken by our members and Regional Representatives.
My own journey with labyrinths is about ten years long.

Design and development of my website labyrinth resources is ongoing. I am on the ALN Schools Working Group and I am finding that my long Teacher Educator experience in professional learning is marrying beautifully with this new labyrinth work that at times seems to be writing itself (e.g. on sunset beach walks).
