My Mandala for Play Therapy

My Mandala for Play Therapy

The first mandala I created in play therapy class was like a snap shot of where I was at the moment. What was on my mind and what I was dealing with that day. When I was told to create anything in this circle, it is kind of anxiety provoking. But then knowing that you can create anything and it will be ok became freeing.

Dr. Stangline said in class that we could create a mandala for our office as well; since it is not recommended that you use your client's art work. I knew that the next mandala I created would be for my office.

At first I thought about creating one with a beach theme since I knew I wanted something that would be soothing and calming. But as I though about it I decided that I wanted one that reminded me of home and my roots.

So walked around my yard and picked up grass, leaves, dirt, and rocks from a pond. I arranged them in a circle to represent continuity.

When I look at my mandala it calms me and reminds me that I always have a home to come home to.
