Sharing Circle 2017

The best way to take your mandala practice to the next level is to show up and create mandalas. That isn’t always easy. Life can be distracting. Inner critics show up. Or, you get stuck drawing the same style of mandala, over and over again. This is where  the Sharing Circle comes in.

A mandala practice can be many things…

In the Sharing Circle, you’ll make kindred connections with other mandala enthusiasts from around the world who like you are committed to experimenting with the many design possibilities found within the circle. 

For some members, exploring the meanings behind their mandalas is fascinating. We share the symbolism, personal associations, and draw out our mandala stories. 

Others seek out the relaxing effects of coloring mandalas and enjoy exploring different color combinations and techniques.

Sharing your Art can be scary…

But, not in the 100 Mandalas Sharing Circle where you’ll find the friendliest people on the web. It’s a safe place to take risks in your art making and dive deep into your mandala stories. Have a question? You’ll get thoughtful responses and encouraging feedback from people all over the world.

“In the Sharing Circle, there is no judgement. This special group takes us as we are with no pressures. I really appreciate that.” ~ Anna Maria Westcott

“The Sharing Circle is different from all of the mandala groups that you find on Facebook. Those other groups are just “showrooms” where you can pick up ideas and see many beautiful mandalas. But, they offer nothing about the meaning, power, and possibilities within the design. The Sharing Circle is a safe and private place for us to discuss our mandalas and what they mean to us.” ~ Fabienne Tosi

The 2017 Sharing Circle features a new layout that includes:

Please note that the Sharing Circle is not a “self-paced” course that you do on your own but rather opportunities to learn, create, and connect through mandala activities and projects within an active community.

The Studio – Inspiration abounds in the studio where members post and comment on the mandalas they are creating each week. Our group generously shares the details including the art supplies, techniques, and mandala stories that went into their mandala art.

Coloring Club – Love to color mandalas? You’ll find others who like to experiment with different color combinations.

The Great Round  This 12-part series guides you through twelve psychological stages that we all experience in life from those creative low moments when you’re feeling scattered to those peak moments when creativity flows easily and effortlessly. Each stage is explored with mandala projects and discussion.

Round Table Discussions – Grab a cup of coffee or tea and gather with other members around the “Round Table” for discussions about mandalas, art, creativity, and life.

Member Library – Download the coloring books, references, and resources for creating and coloring mandalas along with an archive of prompts and lessons that will keep you busy each week of the year.

Collaborative Projects Members are invited to contribute art for coloring books and group mandala projects.

New for 2017! Color Workshop – Members of the Sharing Circle get access to the color workshop. Demos of 11 different coloring mediums, lessons on how to combine colors to create gorgeous mandala art and more! GET MORE DETAILS.

I do appreciate the give and take of all who make this community possible.” ~ Carol M.

    Thank you Kathryn for creating this website. I came across your videos on YouTube a few weeks ago quite by accident. However, it was exactly what I needed at that moment in my life. I’m a systems specialist and I work with a local library system in Beaufort, SC. Yes, I’m a geek and can fix a PC or just about anything pertaining to computers and networks. My job can be quite stressful at times and I needed something as an outlet. Life can be so hectic and it’s such a pleasure just to sit down and create and just feel all that pent up stress ebb away. After watching your first video I was in inspired to go out and purchase a few supplies and created my first mandala. After that first creation I felt an inner peace and such relief from my daily workload. Afterwards I signed up as a member. I’ve yet to submit any of my mandalas but plan to do so soon. There are many days I have no time at all to create but when I do it actually helps me when I am at work. I’ve recommended this site and videos to friends and colleagues. It’s the ultimate stress relief. One of our local librarians has started and adult coloring class and I plan on recommending she introduce mandalas to her class.

    Again, thank you so much for all the time and effort you’ve put into creating these videos and website.

    • Hi Barbara, Somehow I missed seeing your comment along with many others! I loved hearing about your experience with creating your first mandalas. It is a wonderful practice for unwinding at the end of the day or busy week. Thank you for sharing this new found passion with your family and friends. I look forward to seeing your mandalas and sharing this incredible journey. ~ Kathryn
