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.

Making mandalas helps me tell my new story, express gratitude, attract positive people, energy and things and make the transformations I desire in life. It allows me to celebrate my authentic self, focus, relax, set goals, connect and work through difficult thoughts and emotions. Mandalas are a powerful creative tool for personal growth and healing. Today, I live a vibrant, happy life teaching Mandala Art Workshops to inspire, empower and transform …
