Traditionally, the mandala is used as a meditation tool to search for the meaning of self.
This often requires a study of this diagram which we may call the "personality"
- the part of ourselves which bares witness to our vast invisible potential.
Creating your own personal mandala is therapeutic, symbolic & a beautiful refelction of ones own soul.
Present emotions will be represented in your mandala through the use of organically formed shapes & colour.
By allowing your instinct and feelings to inspire & guide you through the process of creation,
a portrait of yourself will emerge.
When you reach your destination, you will have a representation of something meaningful and personal
that you can take home with you -
a snapshot of you - a brief moment in time expressed through your unique personal mandala

"Meditation is spontaneous and therefore it requires spontaneity and not a regimented mind.
Spontaneity comes into being when there is awareness, awareness in which there is no condemnation, no judgment and no identification. If you go deeper and deeper and let it flow freely it becomes meditation, in which the thinker is the thought and there is no division between the thinker and the thought. ~ Krishnamurti
