December 2014: Cheers!

During December of each year we’re reminded in a variety of ways to be of good cheer. Depending on circumstances going on around us and in the world, we can sometimes find this to be a bit challenging.

November 2014: Connectivity

This month’s mandala reminds us that we are all connected, we are all joined in this one big microcosm of an existence called humanity on a planet we call earth.

September 2014: Creativity

Many people shy away from their own creativity thinking they are not creative because they are holding themselves up to someone’s standard of what it means to be creative. We tend to limit the definition of creativity to those who create art (2D, 3D, dance, writing, performance, etc.)

August 2014: Charity

In looking up the definition of “Charity” in the online Oxford Dictionary, I found two of the four options rather interesting. Of course they had the two obvious ones:

Help or money given voluntarily to those in need
An organization set up to provide help and raise money for those in need

Both valid and both important in our society. However, options 3 and 4 touched my heart/soul deeply and I knew that these options are to be the focus of this month’s mandala of the month.
