Strength through Sharing

Featured Iron Butterfly: Marcia Raff

Birthday girl Marcia Raff has a lot of friends. Fortunately for us, one of our friends/editors/supporters, Marianne Rochelle introduced us. We had a lovely afternoon together as she shared stories and memories with us both from her gorgeous home in downtown Austin.

Marcia uses her mind, body and spirit to create beauty. Lucky for us, she loves three things we love: meditative walking, labyrinths and butterflies.

It all began in 2007 when Marcia googled Chartres, France and saw a Cathedral with a labyrinth underneath it. Immediately, she knew she that she wanted to design labyrinths. She wanted to use a symbol so she chose to use the design of a dreidel for her first labyrinth.

Take a few minutes to read her amazing story and to see your gorgeous art.

Let’s keep flying forward with Marcia.
