Health. This was the very first mandala in this series. I made it while I was recovering from a bad case of the flu. I had been way too busy and was needing time to rest, so it was no wonder that I got sick, proving once again the deep connection between our bodies and our minds. It was as if the idea for doing these mandalas came directly from that time to rest, think, and rejuvenate. As the imagery in the mandala suggests, it was a time of flowing and flowering.
