Sharon,
    Your website is FANTASTIC!!! It was so helpful to me when I was
preparing my lesson for 5th grade hand mandalas. I included the
circular art of Native Americans, Christian, and Celtic as examples of
the universaility of mandala designs. It is so interesting, all of it.
I had the Mandala book with the blue illuminated mandala on the cover.
Today I ordered Mandalas of the World, and Creating a Mandala from
Amazon. We have a Tibetan exhibit at our MFA and had a sand mandala
created here last week. Wow. I am only going to have the faculty in my
room for two or three hours when I do this. Obviously it will just whet
their appetites and get them started. I am hoping that many will either
finish on their own or come back to finish and we can have a faculty
mandala exhibit when they are finished. Thanks again for posting your
site. For anyone considering doing the Mandala project, Sharon has done
an amazing job of consolidating resources for you to use. Thank you
again, Sharon.
