My friend posted a link to a this image via 100Mandala.org's facebook page.
I like those 30 day challenges and I love mandalas, so I signed up for the newsletter and started doodling.
That was just a few days ago, but I'm already realising that I'd like to know more about mandalas.
I went to Wikipedia and came across this:
|Carl Jung's first mandala.|
Already a fan of Jung, I was surprised to find that he was responsible for bringing mandalas to the western world.
|Carl Jung refers to the mandala as “the psychological expression of the totality of the self.”|
I realise this is going to something splendid. I'm not going to get too involved in the deep spiritual and psychological aspects of drawing the sacred circle. I want to stay free and explore on my own terms. I know that I will explore more deeply later, but I have the whole year to get what I need to out of this project.
For example, today, I just played around with PatternPie.
