Inspired by a beautiful video of hula hoopers using LED hoops at Hoopcamp 2011 doing “The Hoop Mandala”, I designed one of my more complicated mandalas of the week. If I had left off the stripes, it would have made it easier; but where’s the fun in that?
I do know this, if we want to stay true to the hoops and their stripes, coloring (painting) this mandala will require focus, passion, and tenacity…that’s when the fun begins!
“If I have to make a self-portrait, I would put poetry and rebellion on the list. To be able to walk on a wire, to be able to juggle six hoops, you need focus, another word for tenacity, which is passion.” ~ Philippe Petit
My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
