Discovering the magic of creating mandalas has drastically changed my life. Creating mandalas helped me realize the Divine nature of my being when I was at a difficult place in my life. As I started studying and painting them, I soon became the creative and happy person I was born to be. Mandalas are known to evoke feelings of calmness and well- being. The more you gaze at a mandala, the deeper the meaning becomes. Having a mandala that has meaning for you in your office, yoga studio, or home, encourages calmness, mindfulness, and even healing. Creating your own mandala is even more powerful. I love teaching others to create their own mandalas, which I have been doing since 2013. I've taught over 1000 people all over the world. Through classes both in person and on Zoom. Teaching others to create their own unique mandalas brings me so much joy.
