ART - Mandala

"Art is a human activity which has as its purpose the transmission to others of the highest and best feelings to which men have risen." Leo Tolstoy

Bottle cap mandalas installation by Bryant Holsenbeck.

The Sanskrit term mandala roughly translates to "magic circle" or "sacred circle". They tend to act as activation templates of consciousness. Carl G. Jung studied mandalas from a wide field of world cultures and eras, as well as having advocated for creating our own mandalas as vehicles of soulwork. He noted that when we draw mandalas from the center outward, we tend to process our personal issues or challenges du jour and often gain increased clarity and energy which we can apply to our lives.

"I have been exploring & allowing emergent meaning of my experiences, through creative wellness energy for many years in an attempt to 're-learn' what beliefs might promote life enhancement and healing. Creative expression became an opportunity for me to explore possibilities...to express & create, enabled me to find my own inner therapist, a reawakening to my true resilience! I am now a post grad student at Melbourne Institute for Creative Arts Therapy." ~Peter Fanton, Australia #arttherapy360
