Mandala: Journeys Within the Circle

Mandalas are magic. To create a mandala is to take a journey back to your true self. In the sacred circle of a mandala, magic can happen – fears can be released and the power and the uniqueness that lies within you can be unlocked.

Mandala: Journeys Within the Circle is an exploration of the magic of mandalas, sharing Karen Scott’s mandala journey over several decades and providing a how-to guide for creating and interpreting your own mandalas. It shares real-life stories of everyday people, showing how mandalas have helped them through dark and difficult times and played a role in turning lives around. These stories and the mandalas that accompany them offer inspiration, beauty, and reassurance. They will show you how to bring the magic of mandalas into your own life.
