Imagine a week dedicated to creating mandala art. For participants in the Mandala Program at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY, they did just that spending 4-1/2 days exploring different ways for creating mandalas. “I thought we were going to make one mandala during this week,” said Andy who like many were delighted to have completed six or more mandalas. “I really loved the meditations and the spiritual aspect of creating the mandalas,” shared Patty. Each lesson began with a soul journey guided meditation with a theme that was explored in the mandala project. Click on the images below for a closer look at some of the mandalas that were created.

Let’s face it, life can get pretty heavy but that doesn’t …

Looking back on one’s life we can see moments that stand out as turning points – a marriage, a milestone birthday, a trip, an unexpected diagnosis, the loss of a loved one – each event shifting our perspective of life as we know it. Each turning point is like a polished pearl added to the string of our life’s journey. Yesterday, I added another pearl to my string when I attended a despacho ceremony hosted by Ray Crist and Nina Henrikson of the Jaguar Path and led by the legendary Don Sebastian Pauccar Flores, a Paco shaman from Peru. My experience with the ceremony began long before I had arrived. I spent my morning taking care of some chores, folding laundry, washing dishes, and straightening up my studio. After my meditation, I emptied my mind onto a notebook with a to do list for the next week. These activities helped me to clear my home and my mind so I could arrive free from any distractions. As I shuffled a deck of oracle cards, I …
