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. Join us! The 100 Mandalas Sharing Circle is free.

Member Spotlight: Sarah Ganaway

Member Spotlight: Sarah Ganaway

This week our spotlight is on Sarah Ganaway from Oklahoma, USA. For starters, congratulations Sarah! Sarah completed the challenge to create 100 Mandalas in 100 days. It takes persistence and dedication to reach a goal like this. Way to go mandala sister! Read what Sarah has to say about taking on this challenge: 1. This mandala challenge has taught me that I can set a goal just for myself and/or my passion and make it happen even with my busy schedule! 2. The greatest moment of this challenge was hitting the 100 mark. I felt a little (okay a lot) like Rocky standing at the top of the stairs and I might have spent the day humming ‘eye of the tiger’! (LISTEN to the Rocky Theme Song) 3. The biggest challenge for me was forcing myself to stop everything that I do for everyone else and focus on myself for a few minutes a day. I always put myself last, I always make sure everyone else’s needs come first. I’m now learning to change that.  4. …
