I’ve loved mandalas for as long as I can remember. I find them useful whilst meditating, gaining clarity or inspiration. They bring a beautiful energy to your home or place of work with a sense of peace and relaxation.
Did you know Mandala is Sanskrit for circle or connection and is seen as a model for the structure of life itself? I recently met somone who'd never heard of a mandala before (no not talking about Nelson...) Mandalas date back around 6,000 years! Tibetans call mandalas "Architecture of Enlightenment," a temple or a blueprint of the universe.
Mandalas are used intuitively; there is no right or wrong way to experience one. You may begin just by looking and observing whatever form it takes. As you gaze at the center and take in the rest with your peripheral vision, feel the energy flow between the mandala and your heart center.
The origin of a mandala is a dot from the centre free of dimensions meaning seed or drop. Mandalas are a sacred space often featuring the world around or about you. They represent inner and outer energies; many are formed as circles but can picture a wide range of shapes.
Our featured emerald mandala holds mysteries that are revealed when you are ready to explore. Sedona, Arizona, the lotus flower and the Flower of Life influenced its creation. Painted by artist Dhanya Glory.
Visiting an art retreat teaching mandala drawing programs is a great way to express and immerse yourself whilst discovering this beautiful ancient art.
