Here are all the mandalas that went into the video I posted recently. I welcome you to download them and use them as an aid for meditation. The merkaba is a particularly powerful and simple mandala. The essence of the mandala is the point with the circle around it–the ineffable self. The two intersecting tetrahedron show the play of opposites, yin and yang, the dual aspects of the psyche or any situation. By seeing them in perfect harmony, we invite that harmony into our own psyche, or the situation we may be contemplating. Enjoy!

Here are some more sacred geometry mandalas I’ve been working on recently! Feel free to download and use as aids for contemplation & meditation. I’ve found that when I focus on the center of the mandala the whole thing starts to ebb and do strange things to my visual field, and I get a sense of peace, like the mandala is transmitting its harmony to a deeper part of my being 🙂
Another project Bird & I completed recently, an artistic rendition of the mantra & yantra of the Goddess Durga.
Durga, like Kali, is a fierce manifestation of the Goddess. She was summoned to defeat an undefeatable demon. We all face an undefeatable demon, from time to time, and Durga gives us the strength to face, embrace, and transcend this demon. Whether it manifests as an addiction, grief, an egotistic tendency, etc., Durga can help us move forward.
The most important thing is our intention and willingness to go through the fire of purification. If our spirit is ready and willing, all the power of the universe is at our disposal. That doesn’t necessarily mean the process will be easy, but it will be possible, and if we persevere we will come out the other side reborn.
This mantra can be very powerful if used properly. Many blessings on your journey!
An assortment of photographs and mandalas to bring us back into the awareness of beauty, harmony, and the still point in the heart of the storm. Santa Cruz is a beautiful town, and all the little statues I find here have such an aliveness to them…
May the healing power of nature ebb through these photographs, may we all remember the solace that is to be found in trees, flowers, sunlight and rain. May all beings be happy and blessed.
Thank you for looking!
