As prescribed by Paulina Constancia
During a recent visit to my hometown, I discovered that most of my family have a new found passion for making mandalas. My family is always looking for new adventures for mind, body and spirit. Thus, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the world of mandalas landed on their doorstep, or should I say, that they found themselves knocking on mandala’s door. This week, from March 19-24 we will explore the world of mandalas and other Mandala-inspired works of art.
Here is my Mom, a 75 year old Grandma, who just recently encountered the magical world of mandalas. She colours 2-3 mandalas a day. Listen to what she says about Mandala Making and Coloring as a gratifying activity for a retired person.
“The mandala is an archetypal image whose occurrence is attested throughout the ages. It signifies the wholeness of the Self. This circular image represents the wholeness of the psychic ground or, to put it in mythic terms, the divinity incarnate in man.”
