Magical Mandalas

Beautiful mandalas created from autumn leaves by AST members.

#Autumn in the UK is a particularly colourful one this year with the leaves painting many colours across the sky. Our #AncientandSacredTrees members have been making #art of their own creating stunning #mandalas using the fallen #leaves. Wether made as art, healing, mindfulness or as an offering, these mandalas are both beautiful and inspiring.

"Does anyone else "play" with Autumn leaves? This was my "leaf mandala" ( before my cats played with it ;)) "

We can't help but be fascinated by the falling leaves of autumn them seem to bring us endless joy wether creating beautiful art or simply running through piles of them. Children and adults alike love to play. In these 'time poor' times they are a wonderful reminder to #taketimeout be #fullypresent and immerse ourselves in the #presentmoment.

Christine Irving was in the Bluebell Woods, Morpeth Northumberland.

"These ancient woods are usually a mass with Bluebells in the Spring, hence its name but right now they are a sanctuary of #peace, #tranquility, and #reflection as Mother Nature beds down to replenish her energy for the next stage in the circle of life. I had to create my Mandala whilst there of course. Hope you enjoy the photo."

You don't have to create a #mandala using different kinds of leaves. Here is a stunning one using all of the same Maple variety that just looks simply stunning. Here we can see #MotherNature painting leaves with her autumn colours. Jan Cooper said of her #creation, "Went out to play mandalas with the leaves, as if I've nothing better to do! This was last week, now all are scattered!"
