Sharing Mandalas – One’s a Tattoo

Sharing Mandalas – One’s a Tattoo

I’m so happy I can again share the creativity of others with their mandalas and art. Also I get to share a first. A mandala that was the inspiration for a tattoo.

Last fall I got an email from Chanda showing me the tattoo she got that was the same image as a mandala she saw in a 2015 blog. She so loved the design, she decided she wanted a tattoo of it. So in the fall of 2019 she got one. Here is a link to that blog.


I was so touched by Chanda’s sharing and I am so touched by the sharing of creativity of other mandala and art makers. The mandalas below came into being in our monthly mandala circles. These gatherings are a circle of safe sacred space where such beauty and inspiration comes alive.

The colors blue and green always call to Ann.  There is stitching around the circle and a braided being became part of her recent mandala.

It has been months and months (actually since last July) when I last shared  mandalas and other creations from our mandala circles.

Our circle begins with a spontaneous guided meditation. We create in silence with soft music in the background.  We almost never peek around the see what shapes, colors and marks others are making.

My studio is filled with art supplies. I can’t resist having so many. I love when others discover joy in using different materials. The four mandalas below were painted with iridescent watercolors. They give off a heavenly glow and are lots of fun to use.

Often something calls to us, like the rainbow and butterfly that Karen saw before coming to the mandala circle.

At the end of our circle, we share our thoughts, feelings and creations.  It is always a surprise how often these expressions are similar.

Before Karen arrived, she had a close encounter with  a damsel fly that she spent some time with. It inspired her art.

And an owl that entered her life.

During our circle we looked up the message of owls from Ted Andrew’s Animal Speak book. It said: “The owl spirit animal is emblematic of a deep connection with wisdom and intuitive knowledge.”  May this time of year bring you a deep connection with wisdom and intuitive knowledge.
