Group Description

Thanks for stopping by. Due to inactivity, The Mandala Oasis in no longer adding new members.

The Mandala Oasis is an inviting respite for creative souls to share the joy making mandalas, as well as its gifts of peace & inspiration. Creating or coloring mandalas is relaxing, rewarding and enjoyable; and becomes a spiritual practice for many people.

What is a mandala? Mandala means circle, a sacred circle that represents wholeness & the "self". In the book, Mandala: Journey to the Center, Bailey Cunningham writes: - "Loosely translated to mean circle, a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness....a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds." - As we make our own mandalas & listen for their whispers of insight, they beckon us deeper into the vision & language of our inner-world.

The mandala to the right is called "Multiple Inlets". It represents the online community I intend to gather here, with members from varied inlets from all over the world, being drawn to "the center". In that light, this group is a mandala - a sacred circle.

In making mandalas it doesn't matter what medium you use, be it pencil, ink, paint, crayons, markers, collage, beads, sticks, stones, paper mache, mud or clay - or if you make them digitally. You choose! It doesn't matter if you've been making mandalas for years, weeks or days; or if you've never made them at all & want to it a try, you are welcome to do that here in this oasis of mutual support, learning & celebration of the spirit! And, even better news is that you cannot make a mistake, because every part of your mandala is a clue to a deeper part of YOU! - The mantra is: "Trust the processs".

You are invited to join us in exploring the mysteries & gifts of the mandala. May you embrace the journey of these mysterious, revealing sacred circles...& may your journey be an insightful & magnificient one.
