Mandalas can be created to celebrate a special event. Working together brings about connection on many different levels.

Every image, line and colour is a symbol relevant to the journey that each mandala represents.




Individual, unique - mandalas tell our own story in a visual form.

Mandalas in the work place create links between people, ideas and attitudes. It is a creative approach that brings about unity.

Trees are universal symbols of connection.Connection to each other, to life, to the earth to the heavenly realms. We are cyclic creatures living in a cyclic world and the tree signifies the cycles of existence.

Mandalas depict our unique way of expressing what we know deep within. They represent connection and wholeness and how within that we are our own person.

Every eye is different, unique, personal. It holds the pattern of who we are in a beautiful mandala.
