After a particularly powerful Hakomi session, the idea for this mandala design came to mind. I saw it as a time-lapse movie of a bud opening up to full blossom.
This is the sixth coloring of this mandala design. When I finished painting this one, I realized that I used the chakra/rainbow colors. The subtle spiral effect happened when I repeated the three-colored theme four times ((yellow, yellow orange, and orange petals w/ red, green, and blue edging).
