my complete bio: About Martha Kiger.
Mandalas, or “sacred circles,” are used as a form of creative expression
and meditative contemplation, leading to your center. The
circle is a symbol both of the visible world we live in and the
invisible inner world, the core of our being. It calls us to look inward
to gain insight into our innermost truth.
easily recognize circular forms in the plant and animal kingdoms,
celestial circles, religious icons and architecture, and ancient
structures, as well as conceptual circles such as communities and
families. Faith traditions and cultures worldwide use circles as symbols
of wholeness, unity, continuity, the spiritual eye, and the earth. For
example, mandalas are used in Native American, Hindu, and Buddhist
practices to reflect the essence of spirit for healing and the Divine.

What is a Mandala Circle?
Mandala Circle is a group of people gathered in a creative process of
self-discovery. A facilitator guides the program, using meditation,
visualization, music, drawing, and perhaps chanting or QiGong. Although
colored pencils and paper are most often used, groups may make sand
mandalas for sacred ceremonies.
You do not need a background in art because the emphasis is on your
inner process, not on creating art products. The luminous mandalas
you will create may not depict things because the images arise from
within, glowing with your inner light. Participants may
include adults or children in an organization, a support or recovery group, a
spiritual community, or a circle of friends.
During this experiential program, you will:
learn an easy art-as-meditation technique;
set aside distractions and deepen awareness;
access a visionary symbol through guided meditation;
illuminate your personal mandala;
share insights about your inner process.
Please see my events schedule for a list of
upcoming mandala programs and classes.
