“ The mandala signifies the wholeness of the Self. This circular image represents the wholeness of the psychic ground."

 

~ Carl Jung


Four Step Method for Creating a Collage Mandala:

 

1. Use a circular object to trace a circle onto your card stock, and cut out your circle. 

 

2. Because mandalas are a contemplation on wholeness, ask yourself a question  or set an intention before you make your collaged mandala. A good question to ask before beginning is, "What do I most need in order to feel whole?"
