100 days ago was the first day of lockdown. The time ahead seemed strange, a little scary, slightly odd, restricted and at the same time we quickly saw plenty of opportunities, came up with great ideas, dusted off old projects that we had intended to finish for years.
If you are anything like me, you look back and tend to only see what you haven’t managed to achieve. All that time we were keen to spend mindfully, exploring, and yet we felt exhausted even just getting through some of the days…
100 Mandalas later, we DO have something to look back on, we managed to connect with nature, despite the lockdown. We managed to be creative throughout what seemed to some a long boring period of anger, fear and lack of focus: We did it.
As a community, you all contributed so beautifully to this gallery of Mandalas created from natural materials only!
There is beauty in everything, however small it is – if you look for it, you will find it! Nature teaches us so much!
What making mandalas has done for us:
It connected us as a community!
It kept us connected with nature despite lockdown.
We created meditative moments of peace and quiet for ourselves.
Everything in nature is perfect and accomplished, slow and has plenty of lessons for us.
It bonded us with our children.
