I began creating mandalas in an attempt to regenerate myself after a series of losses. The circle, as a symbol of possibility, would pull me into the sacred center where spiritual truth became visible. While the mandalas reflected a truth for me, others began making comments about how they too experienced healing and transformation while viewing them.
There are a variety of tools one can use to create “perfect” circles and lines, my mandalas are created using unassuming utensils—kitchen plates, saucers, and cups; watercolor pencils; a fine-tipped black permanent marker; and a meditative state that takes me deeply into the familiar. Their simplicity speaks to the innate perfection of our daily life.
May all beings be happy, may all beings be well.
