Drawing mandalas to ease pain. Seriously.

It’s time for another Inspire Me Friday post!


I have been having so much fun sharing these interviews for Inspire Me Friday.  It’s been a blast having my friends share their areas of expertise on my blog and I love that I can give my readers little gifts of inspiration that have helped me so much.  I originally only planned to to this series through the end of the year, but I’m thinking I may keep it going a bit longer.  What do you think?


Today I’m sharing an interview with my friend Desiree East who is an artist and Creativity Coach.  I took a class from Desiree this summer when I was suffering from so much pain with my bulging disk issues. Today I’m having Desiree share a little bit about her creative process and how drawing mandalas have been a source of inspiration to her even when she didn’t realize that she was drawing them.

From my experience in Desiree’s work shop I can honestly say that I was able to completely lose myself in the creative process and was able to forget my pain while I was engaged in creating mandalas.  As an artist myself I admit that I had completely forgotten how soothing the creative process can be.  I was too lost in all the pain.  This workshop was such a gift!  And it helped me to remember this:


The creative process is a meditation where miracles can occur.

Tweet That!



    Through mysterious powers of technology Desiree’s interview was partially cut off and is in 2 parts.  The first part is the MP3 which you can access here:

Thanks for the lovely interview, Rhonda! I am so happy to hear that this process helps relieve your back pain…it’s amazing what a little meditation can do – it truly is a wonderful vehicle for healing. Thank you for being part of the summer session and traveling around with your canvas – you are an artist at heart!! xoxo

Great interview! I love Desiree’s work and the way it relates to every day life and even to those of us who don’t identify as artists. Thank you.
