Happy 1st Birthday - Mandala Oasis!

June 1, 2009 marks the first birthday of the luminoius Mandala Oasis Yahoo Group! In case you don't yet know, the Mandala Oasis online community is one of the most kindred, inspiring, compassionate, supportive and creative groups I've been a part of; and the members have echoed this sentiment from the beginning. The formation of the amazing group is truly a demonstration of the principle "if you build it...they will come."
My desire for kindred community focused in creativity as an expression of spirit, was a Cosmic Gong that I sounded in June '08...they all heard it...and came! This is truly a full circle moment...how apropo! ~ I am thankful for everyone who is a part of this amazing family...be they wallflowers...active participants....or visitors of this blog. It's all of you...all of us... who make the Mandala Oasis...an Oasis of spirit... a truly sacred space.
Beaming grace, gratitude...and a group hug to you all ((((0)))....
~Blissings.... Cheryl

Aloha Cheryl,
Congratulations on the first anniversary of Mandala Oasis from another lurker. I read all the posts, check out all the mandalas and marvel at the nurturing support given by you and the other regular contributors. Trusting someday soon I'll add my voice. Meanwhile, sending you my gratitude and appreciation for forming such a wonderful mandala community.

Happy Birthday and thank you so much for all your initiative in starting/maintaining Mandala Oasis community. Beautiful piece, love the vibrant colors. I have also put the groups button on my blog, and I get over my lurking when I can to come see what people are doing. And none of us lurkers could hang around if you weren't giving us a place to lurk! Yeah.
