work is about sharing her creativity
and showing others how to connect with and nurture theirs. Creativity
and art are the essence and flow of life.
visual or performing,
can be more than just appealing to the eye or entertaining.
True art goes beyond beauty;
it inspires and enhances life
physically, mentally, emotionally
isn’t only for artists.
It is the birthright of everyone
and resides in every cell of a
person’s being. But sometimes people feel they
are spectators on the shore watching
the river of creativity flow by,
when in reality they are part of
the river. Linda shows others how to jump back into that river.
Linda's art and art classes work with the power of mandalas. Mandala means center, circle and essence. Mandalas are images created in a circle with a center point. They represent wholeness and centerness. Those who view and create mandalas find that they become more centered, relaxed, and peaceful. They are used in many cultures
and spiritual traditions to help
the viewer experience the infinite and healing.
Mandalas are also used as a tool in discovering the self.
Like all art,
mandalas are created with colors
and shapes. What is different about
a mandala is that in addition to
colors and shapes; symbols, intentions,
thoughts and feelings are part
of their creation. These additional
elements bring a deeper level of
meaning and power to this art form.
Anyone can create mandalas, even those who mistakenly think they aren't artistic. "Morning Mandalas & Meditation" is a tool that can be used as a daily practice of deep creativity and calm. It balances and enlivens both sides of the brain, relaxes and centers the body and connects to the wisdom of spirit.
