Mandala Story: Catz’s Transformation

We often hear about how relaxing and healing it is to create and color mandalas. I met up with Catz, a member of the 100 Mandalas Sharing Circle, to talk about how she went from quietly watching other members share their mandala art to winning a t-shirt at Mandalafest and getting the encouragement to post her first mandala.

Since her first mandala, Catz’s mandala journey led her to discovering more than how to draw mandalas, she grew in confidence to say, “Yes!” to her dream of traveling and say, “No!” to unhealthy relationships.

I’m so proud to know Catz. She is a joy and bright light in our mandala community. Watch this interview. I hope it inspires your mandala practice.

    Oh Thank you Catz for so courageously sharing your story of your experience of the healing power of Mandalas. You allowed us to see you as a changed person who is so clearly in touch with yourself and connected to understanding the wisdom of your journey.. You describe this so clearly. Wow! I have always enjoyed your Mandalas, and look forward to seeing more of them this year on 100 Mandalas.
    Thank you Kathryn for such a warm and compassionate interview.. your heart is part of the reason that so many participants do genuinely grow and gain confidence in who they are becoming. It is a safe and supportive place to be oneself. There are so many ways in which your creativity inspires others to “Give it a try”.
