"Joy" of the Circle

November is Art Every Day Month, and the gentle art of creating a mandala can be a very powerful artistic practice. Today is Day 14!

You can weave all your secrets into the symbols and colors of the sacred circle.

It is a wonderful meditative focus, and can have remarkable calming effects on the mind and body.

Creating a simple, elegant mandala is a lot easier than you think.

When I'm void of creative ideas, I simply open my sketchbook and let my pen weave methodically around the circle.

Making mandalas is an ancient art form than can be found in all cultures throughout time.

In Wisdom Circles, I teach a very simple, yet very powerful process for creating beautiful mandalas.

We use ancient myth and meditation to weave some of the deepest parts of ourselves into these circles.

It's a vital, and restorative art journaling practice, and I'm giving away 3 places on this wonderful online class.

To put your name in the draw to win one of these places, click here and leave your comment.

I'll be drawing the winners next weekend.  And remember, make sure you leave your contact details so I can let you know when you win.

Thanks for checking in. xx
