The word "mandala" is from the classical Indian language of sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean "a circle", however, in many cultures can symbolize or refer to: the universe, wholeness, our inner and outer worlds, and connectedness. Mandalas have long been a sacred and universal symbol. The creation of a Mandala as a means to awaken one's true "immortal Self' re-directing one's creative energies outward. A Mandala is also known as the "spiritual eye".
For me, my mandala creations are part of my daily yoga practice. I start each day with a Kundalini Yoga practice (called sadhana) followed with painting. This process takes me to a deeper place of creation- a space without "thinking", of quietness, and of peace. Thinking can get in the way of creating from the heart. These images flow naturally from my soul - from a place of stillness. In 2016, I began creating Watercolor Mandala Wall Hangings (Mandala Peace Flags). My designs are printed on fabric, then sewn onto a mini quilt, creating a "peace flag". (see below). To purchase, please visit SHOP NOW
