Mandala Offering

Carrie JordanShamanism

I was inspired by Amy Woodruff a.k.a. Daughter of the Sun‘s beautiful earth offering mandalas (her photos above). She shares them often on Instagram, and is working on a book project featuring her offerings. The geometric and symmetrical designs remind me of nature’s simple, repetitive, efficient designs and biomimicry in architectural, interior, product, and industrial design.

I have started creating earth offerings as a practice as well to give thanks for the abundance all around us and to leave something beautiful behind for others to admire.

When I stop to make an offering to the earth with a simple prayer “Thank you, I’m sorry, I love you,” I feel much more conscious and connected to her.

Here is a beautiful video about her prayerful and conscious process:
