ABOUT OUR PRESENTER
Linda Wiggen Kraft is a mandala artist, photographer, creativity teacher, garden designer, writer and meditation facilitator. Her work centers around enhancing body, mind, heart and soul through art and gardens that inspire, transform, and heal.
Linda works exclusively with mandalas in her paintings, photography and workshops. She is trained in art with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Linda took a hiatus from creating art while growing her garden design business and raising her sons. Then, almost a decade ago, she began to create mandalas as the art form that feeds her soul.
After experiencing increased creativity and clarity from mandala making, she developed an easy way for others to deepen their creativity and clarity with her unique way of making mandalas called Morning Mandalas, Meditation & Journaling. She has taught all ages in schools, healing centers, and retreat settings.
As for her garden work, Linda feels the reason flowers call to people’s souls is that most flowers are mandalas that help people experience their power and beauty - just by viewing them.

Linda has self published the Mandala Coloring Book and Post Card set. She also sells greeting cards and fine art prints of flower mandala paintings and photos. These items can be seen at www.etsy.com/shop/creativityforthesoul
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Every year The Mandala Center features a “Mandala Artist” to share the special place the Mandala has here at the center and in the world around us. Join us this year as we welcome Linda!
Morning Mandalas, Meditation & Journaling is an awakening of inner creativity. It is a daily artistic and journaling practice that connects to deep creativity, enlivens both sides of the brain, clears out interior clutter and brings to the surface the images of the soul. This workshop weaves together guided meditation, creating mandalas in multiple art mediums, and journaling which is done in separate art pieces and incorporated into the mandalas. Join us as we create and grow together in the peaceful and serene surroundings of The Mandala Center.
