February Mandala Challenge

The topic for the February Mandala Challenge is sacred geometry. In this video, I interview Susanne Fincher author of Creating Mandalas with Sacred Geometry. Susanne gives us a step-by-step demonstration of how to construct the triangle and circle progression. Our conversation covers: When and how Susanne got started creating mandalas. Susanne has been creating mandalas since 1976. I asked her why she thinks the mandala has held her attention for so many years. The difference between geometry and sacred geometry. Who has had the most influence in creating sacred geometry? What is the Tetrachtys? What is Metatron’s Cube? How can one use sacred geometry for personal mandalas? Challenge Details Create a mandala based on Susanne Fincher’s demonstration of the triangle, circle progression. Watch the video for step-by-step instructions.
