Luminous Mandala Class and More

Diane Tibbitts and I have 9 people enrolled in our Luminous Mandala Class.  In the class we use the Judith Cornell book, "Mandala:  Luminous symbols for Healing" in which class participants learn to draw healing mandalas on black paper using the scale of light technique for illuminating their drawings. In the first class we did Exercise 2, Expanding the Light Within, from Chapter 1 in the book.  This exercise helps participants spiral inward, open thier hearts to unconditional love, and release fear.  Judith Cornell says  breaking through the inner barrier to reality will enable the participant to experience balance, wholeness, and spiritual light within themselves.  They are instructed to start at the center of the paper and place a white dot and begin drawing a scale of light with a white pencil.  Then they are ask to repeat the scale of light and change its size and shape in reponse to intuitive insights gained in the meditation before the exercise.  One of the participants, Jennifer Efusia, gave us permission to share a drawing she did in reponse to this exercise. 

Melissa York had contributed her latest mandala design which she generated on the computer.  It will be up in my mandala store on the website as a free download in a couple of days so you can print it out.  It's title is "Getting Closer".

If you are looking for a unique holiday gift, go to my Pressed Flower Art Store and look at the Petal Girl Print Cards.  I made the original designs using real flower petals and leaves.  I have sold several boxes of them and have received very positive feedback from the buyers.  I sell the cards in as assorted box of 6 or 6 of one kind.  The assorted box of six has been the biggest seller.  If you live in the area and want to avoid shipping, call or e-mail me with your order and we can arrange for you to pick them up at my house in Medford.
