Our latest Magic Circle coincided with Earth Day!

Magic Circles are live gatherings where members of the Mandala Magic School come together to create Mandala Magic.

It’s SO much more than the act of drawing mandalas.

This time around, we worked with the prompt, Earth Body. 

After our creative time, we split off into smaller groups to share more intimately with each other, then I asked a volunteer from each group to summarise the themes that arose for their cohort.

Thanks to the contributions of our creative community I was able to infuse my own spread with those themes! Cool, right?

Even if a lot of the same themes popped up, what we noticed on the night was just how unique each mandala was.

You can see for yourself: I’ve included some of the pieces created in a gallery below – shared with permission.

    Gorgeous work by all the group, not sure why my name comes up at dav on my mandala? Perhaps Julie can change it?

      Looks like the title got mangled when importing into the gallery, Kathy, sorry. That’s all fixed now – Julie

    These mandalas represent so much reverence for our dear mother earth. It is moving to see them all collected here. Each takes me deeper and deeper into this consideration.

    • Julie Gibbons

      Yes! It’s an amazing body of work we’re creating together 🙂
