Flora Mandalas

Loving the beauty of Nature surrounding me, my muse found an outlet to create balance in my life and share Nature’s beauty found here in the Northwest woods. Mandalas have been used throughout history in most cultures for meditations, healing, and for spiritual ceremonies. For me they remind me to focus on what is front me, whether a creative project, a mundane task, a person needing to be heard.  They remind me everything is transitory.  I create them and within hours they’ve blown away, shriveled up, been made into tea, or gone off to the compost pile! They keep me connected to Nature’s aesthetics and provide a way to share that connection with others. I share them on Instagram, Facebook, where they often have tiny tales, or quotes, to accompany them and here on my blog, in posts and on this mandala page of my blog. Look forward to discovering new treasures in the woods (and give new life to the blooms in old bouquets) to continue to play with in this ancient, healing way!

These little angels started to appear when I was doing a mandala a day for a month!
