What is the 100 Mandalas Challenge?
Create 100 mandalas in 100 days. The goal here is to get creative every day and to discover the possibilities found within a simple circle. These 100 days don’t have to be consecutive. You can jump into this challenge at any time and if you stray with the busyness of life, you are always welcome to pick back up where you left off.
“For me the commitment has deepened my art practice and helped me to access deeper parts of me in ways that no amount of conversation has in the past. As a ‘mentor/coach/counselor’ I sing the praises of ‘mandala practice’ as a safe and profound tool in the opening process.“
~ Karen Schweitzer
“Kathryn, You got the hidden talent out which was buried deep within me. Thank you for everything!”
~ Dr. Shazia Azmi
