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.

Mandalas – Five Universal Shapes

There are 5 universal shapes that are archetypes of energy and psyche  that humankind shares across time and cultures. They are the circle, square, equal sided cross, triangle and spiral.

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.

Mandalas for Mother – Earth

Mandalas for Mother – Earth. Honoring our most important Mother – Earth. Our last Mandala Circle was on Earth Day in April. I lead a guided meditation about the connection of our breath to the rotation of the earth.
