Missing Making Mandalas

It’s been too long since I shared a blog post and have had time to make mandalas. I have missed making mandalas and sharing. Here are photos of mandala flowers, mandalas created by friends and the puppy.

Artist of the Mysteries – Hilma af Klint

I had never been to the New York Guggenheim until last month when I saw the Hilma af Klint exhibit. Seeing her paintings, in some ways felt like a coming home. Born in 1862, Hilma was a spiritual seeker who devoted her life to expressing the mystical realms through painting.  Having discovered Theosophy in my early 20s and Anthroposophy years later, Hilma’s paintings resonated something familiar.

Mandala Flow

I get chills when I see or play with watercolors that allow the flow of color and water to create beautiful unexpected patterns and movement. I especially get that surge of electricity when the watercolors are used in mandala making.

“Becoming” Bundles & Blessings

Instead of 2019 New Year’s resolutions, intentions or goals, this is the year of “becomings”. “Becoming” is not a noun like goal, intention or resolution. It is a life force that gives birth to something new. It is motion and creation that is always growing. It is the active part of “to be”.  “Becoming” lives inside of us and calls to our highest self. “Becoming” is not static, but dynamic and full of life both within us and as part of all creation. “Becoming” is flow, change, growing to fulfillment. “Becoming” at its highest is bathed in fierce heart energy, the flow of life, conviction, light, truth and courage.

The Joy & Depth of Teaching – Art & Soul Retreat

Some of my  most joyful and deepest creativity has been teaching at the Art & Soul Retreat*at Kanuga in North Carolina. It is a feeling of stepping into a stream so strong and deep that it takes me to a place where my soul feels at home, really at home.
