On My Blog Mandala I want to let you know, that a new time has arrived, in which the Educatief Mandala Instituut grows out and become a grown up. Nowadays, we can be inspired on our new place where the training take place: the Dominicanenklooster te Huissen. It is a beautifull convent where I have been a mandala teacher for seventeen years already.  Now my students can be with me in that fine and delicate environment. I am very glad that we have place there for the coming three years.

The first extra training day on mandala drawing on Black and White was a great succes. Our hands are giving and receiving, that is our work and the job we practice. Let this special Education Mandala Institute bring many students to their goal: becoming teachers on Mandala & Numerlogy! I wish them all the luch, trust, love and perseverance they need.

Time for contemplation

Time for Insight – Time to rest – Time to enlighten yourself

In this month – November – it is time to go inside yourself. To get in touch with your inner self and to refresh and undertake some social participation with your family. In America and England we have now Thnksgiving to celebrate.  For most people here in the Netherlands, we have much fun with “Sint Nicolaas” and we celebrate his birthday. Where it is all about, I think, is to have some days in your live that you concentrate on doing something very funny, loveable and social.

Working with mandala’s is the same way of sharing with yourself, your friends, your social surroundings, the most funny, loveable and sometimes also meditative themes of and issues in your live. If you send a mandala drawing (little ones) as a gift for Christmas, New Year or Birthday, you always give something quite personel. You are ‘touching’ people with your little gift, they are touched, in contact with you for a moment. And as your card can stand on a special place: they will still stay in touch with you during the time, that card stands on that place.

I suggest that we send such personel cards to persons in illness, as we want to give them a little bit of energy, as we want to share their sadness, as we want to stay in a sort of deeper contact. In my workshops, winterweeks and summerweeks, I always make cards to share lovely sayings, as they are senteces that inspires people for the day to come.

Learn to share, to give, it is not necessarely to make big gifts: little cards will do!

So for this moment I want to share with you something we try to set in the Netherlands: On the third Advent evening, we will put a Rainbowcard, that all of us made for ourselves, behind the window and we enlighten that picture, drawing, with a light.underneath. It seems to be a wonderfull idea to share with the world. As we do it all together, we will have and bring very much ‘enlightment’ in the world.

Do you want to shar this with all of us?

Let me know on Facebook, Twitter and Linked in.Image

This Silk painting is mine, I love the Tree of Life as an Theme to give Hope to the world.
If you want to share the idea, make a Tree of Life yourself and put it everywhere where you can to share.
Have a good time, enlighten yourself, go in peace and grow!

Dear greetings,
