I’m thinking of creating something like this for my exam but i would like to know more about how and why people do this. If possible I would also love to know of some artists that use this in their work.

Not too late to join us! Hildegard was a 10th century nun who drew mandalas as part of her spirituality and never knew that this was an ancient way of visualizing and completion! So cool…

I felt like I finally found my Self, like I was brought back to Life… So I began to draw mandalas regularly with the purpose to bring more joy and balance to my life. It worked! 🙂

Love this page! I used to be fascinated by mandalas many years ago and used to decorate my room with mandala wall hangings etc. But a few years back I developed General Anxiety disorder and my life has been chaotic ever since. Iv thought many times to paint mandalas but dint really get around to it. Of late the urge has been strong to paint them and write following the art making. Some sort of inbuilt wisdom telling me that this is going to be what takes me through the final stretch of healing.
This page and comments have helped me let go of starting hesitation and jump in. Thank you!

It is interesting to see how different cultures have different perspectives on art. I really like this form of artwork, it is intriguing and it seems the more I look at a piece the more I see.

My son began painting mandalas when he was recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury (and other injuries), that damaged or destroyed 75% of his frontal lobe. His paintings, and particularly his mandala work, seemed to be a key component in his recovery. It’s like it helped him to “rewire” and restructure his brain. They started out very simple and have become increasingly more detailed and complex, which I think is a mirror of the complexity of his brain. He made a collection of them in his first mandala coloring book.

The one commentator who said that artistic mandalas are not the only form of artistic expression and thearpy is correct, but denigrating this form as merely a fad is excessive. A landscape or portrait can also be healing, but do they have the capacity to symbolize the cosmos or microcosmos so fully. The paradox of the mandala is that it represents the whole, while it is generally bounded by a bit more than the whole, a conceptual synergy of its own. Finite creatures can comprehend the infinite at an instinctual level, but not fully at the intellectual level. Namaste

Many people and cultures have vouched for the mandala’s intrinsic meaning. Buddhists, Tibetans, and Hindus have all derived meaning from the mandala and its captivating beauty. Psychoanalyst Carl Jung has called it “a representation of the unconscious self.” The mandala is widely recognised as a meaningful reflection of its creator. Mandala art therapy & healing can be a great source of reflection on one’s soul. Mandalas can be seen all around us, but are not just people-centric. They are larger than life. Mandalas represent life as we know it, but they also represent a larger ecosystem and universe that exceeds our consciousness. [Read full source] […]

I have a question for you. You said you are an art instructor and you work in hospital so not being an art therapist can an art instructor do art therapy with cancer patients. Just curious as I am a physician assistant and an artist and I want to practice art therapy. Mandala will be my first project if I could practice.

Thanks for the info to the blogger, very informative

But I had ever experienced using circle structure with line of heart and leaves outwarding from the center. I chose my favorite green & blue and other yellow.. I found relaxation. I also experiment doing french knot with free movement from the center. I found a good relaxation, but I don’t know more of the meaning. Thank for your information on the basic info and color meaning. I hope that I will learn more from friends in this connection to your website

I’ve witnessed my own inner-journey through both creating mandalas and free-writing afterward. I did this consistently from 2007-20010, and sporadically in 2011, and will resume in 2012. In reviewing them (via my blogs) I saw my expression inside the circle shift week to week, month to month from essay-type writing to poetic phrase that poured through my encounter with the finished mandala; all the form my heart and soul needed to express at the time. I’m thrilled that via blogging I was able to introduce others to “mandala medicine” as I call it and they’ve since expressed how its helped them gain clarity and peace. I share my mandalas at my most current blog: http://www.mandalaoasis.blogspot.com/ and my 1st blog, just scroll a bit to see the mandalas: http://www.artineveryday.blogspot.com/

I was so inspired after the first year that I wanted to commune with others who were just as passionate about mandala making,and sharing their joy of their experience so I founded the Mandala Oasis Yahoo Community: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MandalaOasis/

I love meeting others who share the joy of mandala making…of any kind. I thank the Art Therapy Blog site for making this possible. Rich blessings to one and all for a magnificent 2012, and beyond.

Thank you so much for the meaning of the mandala! I have always been attracted to this art form, without knowing why…now, I believe I know why. 🙂

I put together this mandala art session for you and others to enjoy! I’m also a musician and have brought the 2 – art and music together!

My life’s purpose is to bring light and healing. I teach faith formation and transformation seminars. I just studied about the Social Presencing Theater, Embodied Presencing Practice, Systems Thinking, Egosystem to Ecosystem, the social field, the ripple effects and interconnectedness. The last being the title of our upcoming Painting exhibit on Oct and this lead me to you. There is a lot of resonance. It was meant to be. I am very grateful.

I am mom of 12 year old autistic boy. I designed this app for my son and myself, but can be used and enjoyed by everyone! I started drawing mandalas around 1 year ago, and I have no idea why I did. It was very enjoyable. The unexpected result was that I started having these very vivid, powerful dreams where all aspects of my life that seemed overwhelming and unmanageable (i.e., work, paperwork, juggling family schedule, etc) all of a sudden seemed very easy. It was like on some level, I felt my brain re-organize, like a computer harddrive running a defragmentation program. This lead me to really believe in the power of the mandala.

I designed this program to be easy to use for anyone. You simply touch different parts of the mandala to fill in the colors. There is very soothing background music. It’s just a relaxing, enjoyable experience, great for anxious or stressed out kids. The complete opposite experience of an arcade game. I hope it is helpful. Please spread the word. Thanks!

Most of the paintings that I’ve completed, always consists of some kind of circular pattern. No matter what I decide to paint, it always ends up round. Now I have a better understanding of why. When people comment on my love of circles in my artwork, I simply tell them that it comes from the inside.

I do appreciate geometric shapes. However, I always seem to come back to the circles. I have, in the past, heard of the mandala but didn’t look into it. I was exploring your website and now feel I have a sense of reason as to why I am so attracted to circles. Thank you for the time you put into your website. I have enjoyed everything.

But, during our youth, the circle is always giving us a second chance. When we get back to the begining we go the same route, pretty much following the principle of psychologist, Eric Erikson’s stages of psycho-social development. This is why some of us tend to make the same mistakes over and over. If we understand that the circle of life is continually giving us new opportunities to correct old mistakes and grow better and better, then we can be as beautiful and resilient as nature.
