For a limited time, we are offering a free workshop on "How to deal with stress, anxiety, depression, etc." All you have to do is register. See you there!

Having experienced many challenges in my life over the years, I have been on a journey of growth, spirituality, self-care, forgiveness, and personal development. Many of the topics in the Mandala Journal are techniques I have used to help me through some of my darkest days and to invite more joy and gratitude into my life. Now I want to share them with you!

Mindfulness and meditation are incredibly powerful tools for taking control of our emotions, managing stress and allowing ourselves time to unplug, breathe, and focus on what is most important to us. These practices can also help our minds relax and work through the challenges we just can’t seem to find the answers to on our own. I hope these posts will help you in your personal journey as much as they have helped me in mine.

If there is a topic you would like me to cover, a technique you can share with others, or a story you want to tell, please reach out to me! If your idea or story gets published, you will receive exclusive hand-drawn mandalas just for you.

Happy reading!

A medical revolution has begun worldwide: doctors are being granted the ability to prescribe art as treatment. This is beyond exciting, and it’s should be celebrated as a breakthrough in modern medicine. As henna artists we have seen firsthand how art can benefit health.

Take a tally of all of the positive forces you’ve put in place: meditation, exercise, healthy eating, tea, art, positive thinking…hopefully, it’s a long list. You may still feel bogged down, and that’s okay because there are ups and downs: that’s life. However, you should still examine any environment in which you feel unsettled. Particularly the people around at the time.

Yes, okay, so we’re still in a state where we have to schedule self-care into our regular routine, but the positive is that we’re doing it! Society is finally moving into a direction where more and more people are adopting meditation, exercise, healthy eating, food for thought, and nature in their lives. As spring turns to summer – FINALLY – gardening is a fantastic way to take a time out for your mind and body while you connect with nature at an inspiring time.

Stress is a physical reaction to…something. It could be anything, really. You may experience stress when you get a bad grade on a test, when you have a fight with a friend, when you can’t find something you know you left in a safe spot, or when you’re about to go on stage. When we experience stress it is our body’s way of pumping us up to make quick decisions in the face of danger, also known as the survival instincts Fight or Flight.

Holidays are just around the corner and by now there’s a good chance you’re freaking out a bit. No matter what you celebrate in the winter season, the time has come for an overload of socializing, family time, hosting duties, gift-giving, and maybe even a New Year’s Eve wedding thrown in “just for fun”. But it’s okay, you’ve got this! If you’re at the point where you no longer look forward to the holidays, take heart and get back into the festive spirit with our tips to manage holiday chaos.

I use meditation every day to help me focus on my work, to relieve stress, and find inner peace, and I really find that these internal progressions reflect in my actions, particularly when a situation is tense or uncomfortable. Some days meditation will be easy and on others it will be challenging – no matter how much you practice. But the practice will teach you that the efforts are worth it, and will give you more experience to press through when it’s hard, or to know what forms of meditation most benefit you when you find it difficult to do.

Dedicated art therapy involves art as a medium and a therapist as a leader of the activity. It can be as simple as colouring computer printouts, creating collages or inspiration boards using images and words cut out from magazines, all the way to intricate oil paintings, pottery, and more. In addition to visual arts, art therapy also includes performance art like dance and music, as well as the vast genres of writing. One of the greatest benefits of art therapy comes in its many forms, making it widely customizable to someone’s needs, talents, and interests. Like any kind of skill, developing artistry to use as a therapeutic tool takes practice and time. The bonus is that the practice is a lot of fun, and that the learning can be as therapeutic as the honed skill.
