THIS VIDEO from Matt Monarch of the Raw Food World and Raw Food TV Show. But after really doing some research I've found they are close to the Sand Art that Monks do and while I was in college back in '97 took a trip to an Art Museum in Cleveland where Monks were set up for 2 weeks working round-the-clock on their masterpiece while in silent mediation and only eating fruit and drinking water. It was amazing. Now that I know more about Mandalas in all walks of life I'm finding there is no wrong way to do them. I'm not going to lie...I'm certainly NOT a mathematician therefore I doubt I will ever take a contractor to it they did in Matt's video. I have seen several other videos of people free handing them and I tried my every first free hand Mandala over the weekend.
The one you see above is from a book I bought and it's not quite done yet. I think I will be leaving some white space in the first one but not as much as you see here. I also like the fact you can work on these over time or all at once. It's very calming. I'm enjoying them. The free hand one I did is the 2nd photo. Again...it was my very first one. I think I will continue to do these. My husband already has requested one for the home recording studio.
Have you ever seen mandalas before or tried doing any on your own!?
