Spirit of the Labyrinth

Throughout our labyrinth journey we have had some very heart warming experiences with many people, from all walks of life. We are calling these experiences the “Spirit of the Labyrinth” stories. Some day we wish to publish a compilation book about them all, however we would like to share just a few with you here. It is our intent that your heart be touched as warmly as ours. Enjoy!

(The photos accompanying each story aren’t always “where” the story took place nor the actual people the stories are referring to, just a visual representation of the “spirit” of the story… and the labyrinth.)

These Children came to ask Marty if they could “go on the heart” when he replied Yes, they flipped off their flip flops, out of respect for the space with out even being asked to do so!  This Heart in the Park labyrinth located in Tonkawa OK… is being well used
