Yesterday Patricia and I facilitated our Spring Mandala Retreat Day. We incorporated Angeles Arrien's process with the 5 Universal Shapes into our mandalas. The energy in the group seemed to hum with contentment as we welcomed the Spring through creating mandalas in community.
Here are the photos that were taken of the days creative process.

Look at the magical, emergence of color and light in Marsha's mandala. So luminous!!
I loved the energy in the room in the afternoon, after we had been deeply drawing for a while. The focused joy of drawing was almost visceral. Both calming and energizing at the same time. The healing power of art and the focusing energy of drawing mandalas, intertwined. How lovely.
