The six foot Kali Mandala glowed magnificently under the influence of a black light last night. One of the participants, Kayt Gordon, called the mandala “off the wall” – literally – as she kept seeing it transform, leap off the wall, and enter the circle as another participant while us humans meditated with movement and dance.
With the break of dawn today, I took down the masterpiece who’s creation consumed my time this past week. I was reminded of the sand mandalas created by Tibetan Buddhists – medicine that captures an energy that is meant to be used and what remains is allowed to pass away.
Originally my plan was to move the sacred art into my healing room. This morning, I contemplated and alternative plan. I could just leave it on the wall to fade in the sun. That felt good. However, I finally decided that I would put it on the front of the house where more people could enjoy it. That will take a little effort – the house is made of stucco and not as friendly to work with as wood, but I have a plan.
The next Goddess Wisdom event will be on December 26th. We will be celebrating Hestia, the goddess of eternal light and the hearth. Mark you calendars. I sense another mandala will be there to bless us all.
