The word mandala literally means “association,” “society.” ~ Chogyam Trungpa

Coming together in circle, occupying the intentional space together – this is one example of the mandala principle – and a key factor behind my inspiration to create these ceremonies.

I wish I could gather all 250 members of the Mandala Magic 2015 circle in one room and create together in real time! So far, the Star Trek transporter tech is proving elusive, so we make do with virtual gatherings across the internets.

Last weekend, we got together to create a mandala as part of our fifth stage investigation into the Great Round of Mandala – a transformational exploration of psyche in our art journals.

There’s always such a risk with these events, especially as far as the broadcasting technology is concerned, and this circle was not without its share of glitches, but we muddled through and managed to create an event that we all felt connected to.

ceremonial foot mandala I’m always amazed to see how differently the mandalas turn out, even as we work from the same brief and in this case were mostly creating them at the same time! So vibrant and full of life – perfect for the declaration we kept in mind of “I have the right to exist!”
