This site is the result of passion, research and experimentation of the Mandala that animate my life for years. 
It is a notebook in which to give orders to my notes scattered to the suggestions of readings and special meetings with special persons. 
I would like remember someone here, but they are more. Martha Bartfeld and her Magic Mandala,  Marilyn Clark my tutor during the course of Mandala Programme, Susanne Fincher the leader of Mandala Programme, Dam Chhoi Lama that opened me the door of traditional Tibean Mandala. Verena Von Loesch who introduced me to the Mandala ten years ago helped me grow and mature into chaos of my uncertainty because she always said me: 'when the heart is fixed on something all is possible'.  And some Dine'- Navajo that opened my mind about sand painting, and medicine wheel during my jurney in the great grasslands of the Southwestern United States where the Navajo Nation preserves its traditions and its millenary myth. Many international artists, Chris Flisher, Leo D'Lazaro, Digital Dave, Giampistone. And all people of Mandala Oasis Group... they are fantastic!
All these people are a gift into my life!

None of this would take shape if I had not had the person close to me that  accompanying me and believes in me more than I do myself. The person who introduced me to the IT world and its secrets, which regarded with affection my eccentricity and supported all my choice, my husband Carlo. My wings.

With the hope that you find your center and from there spread full of good energy and positive ...
Happy surfing.

  • Mandala Solstice and blessed words The warmth of the sun's embrace, the gentle breeze swept in by incoming tide,the rhythm of seasons, of new birth, death and recreation.All these speak so clearly of your love, your power and your beauty. All are expressions of your creativity, and more importantly of yourself.As an artist might share his personality within each brushstroke, so within the myriad colours of a butterfly's wing you share the exuberance of your love© John Birch.
