Mandala Day 2

 

 Our 2013 Mandala in Progress

Mandala comes from a Sanskrit word meaning whole world or healing circle.  It is said to be a reflection of the entire Universe.  Mandalas have been used in many cultures for centuries as tools for meditation, healing and insight.

Each year we come together and transform the end piece of pavement into a Mandala containing our thoughts, intentions, hopes and dreams for the coming year.  It is a fun painting day whose creativity gets enjoyed all year as a focal point in the WellSpring garden.

The 2012 Mandala, our first one, is shown below.
