I had the good fortune to work with a very small group of students at the Longley School in Lewiston, Maine this month. Rather than making a Community Mandala, each student made their own Mandala. In the center of their individual Mandala they put a clothes pin person to represent themselves. Then they created other clothes pin people to represent their “support system” – people that help them, love them, feed them, teach them, care for them. This was a very special project with a very special group of students.
