When I visit Chicago someday, I plan to visit the Bahá’í House of Worship in nearby Wilmette. It’s the first Bahá’í Temple built in the Western Hemisphere. I love that the plan for this temple is a beautiful mandala design.
In 1920, delegates to the Bahá’í National Convention unanimously selected Jean-Baptiste Bourgeois‘ innovative design for the temple. In May 1953, the doors were open to the public…23 years after Bourgeois’ death.
My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
