LOTUS MOON MANDALA PART ONE

NO MUD, NO LOTUS
Both suffering and happiness are of an organic nature, which means they are both transitory; they are always changing. The flower, when it wilts, becomes the compost. The compost can help grow a flower again. Happiness is also organic and impermanent by nature. It can become suffering and suffering can become happiness again.

LOTUS MOON MANDALA PART TWO

 

Align with Lunar Time and Re-awaken your Creative Fire

The Moon Mandala Circle is an offering for your empowerment. For you to reclaim your creativity, to practice self-compassion, to gain resilience through the creative process. To (re)awaken the creative cyclical being inside you that knows how to find her way through the chaos of life to become the calm in the eye of the storm.

Creating mandalas can help activate your intentions by bringing an idea into form using symbols, words  and colors.

I opened the Moon Mandala Circle in 2017 to hold space for women who wanted to access their relationship with lunar wisdom. 

Each lunar cycle works with a theme and a meditation for personal growth and transformation.

The lessons are designed to be guided explorations, rather than step by step formulas. It is important that you follow your inner voice! That is what I will be practicing and modeling as your guide.

Nurturing what is yet to become, creating something out of nothing ...
Creative life is a spiritual practice.

About April 

I am drawn to things that keep me connected to the cycles in nature and reminders that life is an unfolding work in progress. Meditation, creative process, connection to intuition and the cosmic currents get me up in the morning. And my daughters who need breakfast and lunches for school. And kisses. 

"MY ART IS THE WAY I REESTABLISH THE BONDS THAT TIE ME TO THE UNIVERSE."

This powerful quote by the artist Ana Mendieta says everything to me about the drive to create. Her earth-body-works made a deep impression on my understanding of place, belonging, mother nature, identity and the female body.
