Located on the Greek island of Lesvos, volunteers from various non-governmental organizations used over 2,500 life jackets to create this very large peace symbol on the island’s mountaintop in January 2016. The life jackets were left behind by Syrian refugees after they arrived in Greece. What a powerful statement.
Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei set up a studio on the Greek island of Lesvos to highlight the tragic humanitarian crisis. During a press conference hosted on New Year’s Day, the artist spoke about Greece, a country that accepted refugees with open arms and saved their lives.

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?
