What is a Mandala?
A mandala is a sanskrit word meaning 'sacred' or 'magic circle'. Psychologist Carl Jung introduced mandala's into western thought. He noticed his patients often spontaneously created circular drawings. Jung also began drawing his own mandala's in 1916 and noticed that they somehow corresponded to his inner situation, feelings, and thoughts. Jung realized that these circular drawings were therapeutic, first to draw, then to look at.
Jung finally arrived at the conclusion that the self, the wholeness of the personality, is reflected in the mandala. Mandala images emerge spontaneously as a sign of change or transformation and are also associated with a feeling of wholeness, growth, and birth of something new.
Hence creating mandala's are also a way of opening up to our inherent creativity, a particular quality everyone has, and that is not only connected to our ability to draw and paint, but also to the capacity to create our life moment after moment in joy and freedom.
