Creativity Journey #2 – The Fullness of Mandalas

Open Link Here

This Creativity Journey is an exploration of mandalas. Mandalas are circular images embraced by the completeness of a circle. A full moon is a complete full circle. Today is the Full Moon, September 2nd. The moon is fully illuminated by the sun. It is a time of balance when the lights of the sun and moon are at their brightest.

Creativity Journeys are just that, a journey into an inward exploration to the depths and womb of creativity and an outward expression that gives birth to the flow of creation.

The word “mandala” comes from the Sanskrit word meaning “sacred circle”.  A mandala is an image that is enclosed in an actual or imagined circle.  There is usually a center point within this circle. The mandala shape is seen in nature from the largest spheres of planets and moons to much smaller flowers, snowflakes, shells, and to even smaller individual plant and animal cells. The circle is a shape of completeness and wholeness. It is a safe place to hold inner creative expression.

Creativity Journey #2 explores different ways to create mandalas with different techniques and art materials. Writing prompts and images making ways explore Art Journaling which combines words and images.

This Creativity Journey blog post (like all the Creativity Journeys)  is organized into six parts:
* The why, or big picture of creativity, what is our deep longing to connect with our creativity.
* A guided meditation to relax into a mind, body and heart space opening to creativity flow.
* Prompts for Dancing on Paper, mark making with words and images.
* Examples and how-to of mark making through the prompts.
* Examples of what was created from previous Creativity Journeys.
* Closing Poem or Prayer.
