THIS SERIES CAME ABOUT IN ANSWER TO TWO QUESTIONS: "HOW CAN MY WORK BENEFIT THE GREATEST NUMBER OF PEOPLE?" AND "HOW CAN VISUAL ART SUPPORT THE HEALING PROCESS?"  THE MANDALAS ARE FLORAL BECAUSE INITIAL EVIDENCE BASED DESIGN RESEARCH INDICATES THAT  NATURE MOTIFS HAVE THE MOST BENEFIT FOR HOSPITAL PATIENTS.  THE CIRCULAR LAY-OUT OF A MANDALA IMPLIES INTEGRITY, INTERCONNECTION AND SPIRIT.  BY REVEALING THE GEOMETRIC STRUCTURE OF ALL FORM, SACRED GEOMETRY OVERLAYS DEMONSTRATE THE UNDERLYING ORDER OF THE UNIVERSE.  WHEN FACING LIFE CHALLENGES, IT IS A SOURCE OF COMFORT AND INSPIRATION TO BE REMINDED OF THE ORDER AND BALANCE FOUND IN NATURE.

 

 

THIS MANDALA BOTH CONVEYS AND CONTAINS THE VIBRATION OF VITAL LIFE FORCE.  LOOK CAREFULLY TO SEE THE LARGE FIVE POINTED STAR INTERPENETRATING THE PASSION FLOWER BLOSSOM.  THE STAR IS PART OF THE 5 MATRIX YOU SEE EVERYWHERE IN THE PAINTING, FILLING "EMPTY" SPACE AS MUCH AS IT DOES "SOLID" FORM.  FIVE-NESS IS THE SOURCE OF THE GEOMETRY OF LIFE, THE PATTERNS OF NATURAL GROWTH, SPIRALS, THE MOVEMENT OF WATER, THE FAMOUS FIBONACCI SEQUENCE, PHI AND THE GOLDEN PROPORTION.

 


 

WHILE CONTINUING TO GAZE AT THE MANDALA, FURTHER CONNECT WITH YOUR OWN VITALITY BY VOCALIZING, PERHAPS BY TONING VOWEL SOUNDS.  WARM UP WITH THE YOGIC BREATH OF FIRE, "KAPALABHATI."  WAKE UP YOUR BODY FROM HEAD (TAPPING WITH ALL OF YOUR FINGERTIPS) TO TORSO (USING SOFT FISTS) TO ARMS AND LEGS (GENTLE SLAPPING.)  THEN, PLAYS SOME LIVELY MUSIC AND MOVE TO THE RHYTHM!
