Saw this delightful mandala last week on Instagram from self_pollinate. Janelle Amos believes in sharing her “joyful little play dates with Nature.” She makes beautiful mandalas from vegetation, food, and/or items found in nature.
Just by looking at this particular creation, I can tell that it must have put her in a wonderful active meditation state while making it. It feels joyful and calming. I love it’s gentle simplicity. Each seed looks like a little stepping stone that if we were the appropriate size, we would want to hop from one seed to the next along this looping path.
She states that she…
made this one while singing and dancing on the porch in the sunshine with the girls.
Here’s a case where playing with your food before you eat it is good thing.
