This week I had a flashback.
My very first mandala poem was published in a poetry journal about 25 years ago.
I didn’t have the language for it back then, so I wouldn’t have called it a mandala poem, but that’s essentially what it was – a circular poem that spiralled into centre. That womb-like poem began a long birthing process for me.
In the twenty-five years since then, I’ve been journaling in circle, doodling in circle, and making designs on my arms in circle. All of that has lead me to the place I am today, where my mandala practice has become so meaningful to me, I make one every day.
Lately, something new has been growing in me… a realization that this is too important not to share. Mandalas have helped me find clarity and a sense of peace around so many issues, I need to let other people in on the beauty of them.
So I’ve got a couple of new things to offer to help you develop your own mandala practice.
I’ll be doing one-on-one Mandala Sessions with people who are trying to work their way through restlessness to peace, through complexity to simplicity, and through confusion to clarity.
I’m also offering Mandala Discovery, a six week story circle and mandala-making workshop, for people who want to develop a longer term practice, or explore ways of using mandalas in their coaching or teaching roles.
To learn more and to register, go here. (Or click the “mandalas” link on the menu bar.)
Also… if you’re one of the first 10 people to register for Mandala Discovery, you’ll get a BONUS… a mandala journal with a one-of-a-kind cover handmade by me.
