Your Heart-Centered Creation
“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Mandalas are a form of sacred geometry whose patterns could be found in natural forms, like flowers, snowflakes, nautical shells, and honeycombs. Mandalas have been used for centuries, in some sort of form or fashion, by different cultures and religions throughout the world. It is represented by a circle, which is a symbol for life, and the creation of mandalas have been used as a form of meditation, ritual, healing, inspiration, and self-expression.
You will create your very own unique mandala painting, using an easy step-by-step process. You will also explore the benefits of meditation and relaxation, while exercising your creative mind and embracing the idea of being in the present moment.
At the end, you will have designed a unique mandala design that is yours to keep!
NO ART EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
“THE WAY IS NOT IN THE SKY. THE WAY IS IN THE HEART.” – BUDDHA
Can’t draw a stick? I’m here to help. Not only will I help you draw a stick, I am here to remind you that we all have a birth right to creative expression, whether it’s a fancy stick or a not-so-fancy stick. I would like you to think of our sessions together more as journey into the creative process itself, rather than producing a piece of artwork that will blow the minds of worldly art collectors.
That’s the wonderful part about creating mandalas. You are creating a unique design, step-by-step, and it’s for your intentions and for your eyes only (of course, I’d love to see your progress, if you are willing to share). Think of it as a really fancy circle doodle.That’s it!
Each week, you will be greeted with creative warm-up exercises, to help get past those initial fears and doubts, and then, I will show you how paint your layers, in simple steps from start to finish, little by little. The fun part, is that you will get to create your mandala design in your own unique way.
AT THE END OF OUR SESSIONS TOGETHER, YOU WILL:
- have the knowledge of how to do a basic painting from start to finish
- have the basic tools needed to pick up your paint brush and paint anytime you want to
- have the courage to get past doubt, fear, judgement and resistance
- have gained creative confidence and learn how to use art making as a form of relaxation and meditation
- know how to use the power of intention to create positive changes in your life
- have created a piece of art work that is both beautiful and meaningful

LOVE AND PRAISE
“I LOVE HOW YOU GAVE THE TECHNICAL GUIDANCE BUT ALSO LEFT SPACE FOR THINGS TO EVOLVE NATURALLY.
You created a space where your tools enhanced my creativity. Brilliant. Plus, your voice and presence were soothing, non-intimidating and really fun to watch. I feel like I put some great tools in my pocket in terms of approaching HOW to start and complete a mandala. I’ve drawn them before, mostly with pen. Now I have the confidence of going step-by-step to create the vision I see in my mind.
I feel more open to experimenting with my art and in other areas. I will definitely paint more, which is – for me – a great self-care habit. Your coaching is easy to follow, backed by your talent, inspiring. I really enjoyed it.”
Divine Self-Care Mentor & Strategist
“When I was taking Mandala Meditations, it was during the period of time not knowing which direction I should go for my business.
This program helped me slow down my mind and return to the center of myself. I saw my fears and the uncomfortable zones in both my painting and the business. During the last week of class, I did a digital cleanse and made my decision to restructure my business. It was a wise decision. Desiree is a patient and calm teacher. She is the perfect coach to guide people who don’t have art or spiritual experience. I learned how the arts can heal and learned how to use Mandala paintings to reveal fears and blind spots. I also met wonderful women in this group who supported and encouraged each other. We were able to express and share our emotions with each other through the painting process. I really enjoyed this class! The results were more than I expected, and now I know how to use art to transform my thoughts. Thank you Desiree!”
Business Financial Consultant/Intuitive Money Healer
“I was somewhat concerned that my clients with more impaired language would not be able to participate, but they felt no pressure and really enjoyed Desiree’s ability to make the tasks manageable and enjoyable.
Participating in these creative coaching sessions helped increase their awareness of creative opportunities and increased use of non-language based thinking. After our sessions, one client sought other creative opportunities – art classes in town; others want to do more and have been thinking about other opportunities.
Desiree was well prepared and organized and provided coaching in optimal chunks – never too overwhelming. She has a wonderful teaching style with a great blend of verbal teaching and demonstrations.”

“This is a creative experience that everybody should have at least once in their lives.
It changed my perception of art. It changed my approach to creation with less self doubt and more joy. I recommend this course to anyone that is looking to unlock the muse, the creative “duende”; that energy that we all so often hide and repress with the fear of being judged. Desiree is a fantastic guide. She has managed to create a fantastic combination of arts and meditation, and her presence is soft and gentle, but at the same time focused and professional. I strongly recommend her guidance, you will learn much more than painting.”
