January Mandala a Month

Many of you will know that for 2013 there are a group of people who have committed to creating a Mandala a Month. This community has been engaging via a separate blog, but I thought I would give you all a little sneak peek at what has been happening. There are about 25 people signed up for the group, but participants are not required to share their mandala every month. Sometimes the mandala experience can be very personal and difficult to share immediately. The image here shows 12 mandalas from those who were willing to share what they created. You can see from the image that there is a great variety. Some are very simple, others are very intricate. Some are colourful, others are more plain. The differences in media used is extensive. 

Each of these mandalas tells a story. It is a story of the person who created it at the time they created it. Each mandala is a treasure, not only to the person who made it, but to all of us. It is a sharing of self. This is such a rare and beautiful act in a world that encourages individualism. I encourage you to take the time to have a look at each one and take a moment to think or pray for those who made them. If you'd like to join us for February - just let me know.
