Creating Your Own Mandala

Mandalas are used in many spiritual traditions, most notably within Tibetan Buddhism but also within Native American traditions. Modern Jungian psychology also uses the mandala as a way of exploring the hidden recesses of self.

Mandalas are used in many spiritual traditions, most notably within Tibetan Buddhism but also within Native American traditions. Modern Jungian psychology also uses the mandala as a way of exploring the hidden recesses of self. Mandalas are one of the oldest art forms in existence. They have been used throughout the ages as a way of creating healing energy and inner peace. They are used to understand out life experiences and ourselves: a way of celebrating your life.

From Nancy Caldwell:
"Ever since I was a child, my dream was to wake up each morning and spend the day being creative. Then to share these creations in a way that would bring joy to others, and inspire them to create something themselves. You might call it a version of “pay it forward.”

Over the years I have been an award-winning artist, a clothes and jewelry designer, and currently creating paper art in the form of handmade journals. Writing is always a part of my creative process. As my life changes, I discover new ways to express myself creatively and believe to be a kind of centering, healing process for me. So when I witnessed Tibetan monks creating mandalas (an ancient art form) I was intrigued. After researching and studying this art form, I began to experiment on creating one for myself. I thought about creating personalized healing mandalas as a business, but that did not feel right to me. So in the spirit of my childhood dream, it occurred to me that I could teach others to create their own, something they would benefit from far more than me doing it for them." Nancy's website is:
