About Jane Hendrickson

jane-hendrickson-resized“True healing is not physical — it is a spiritual awakening to our True Self. If art is used for that purpose then it can be quite healing as it purifies the mind of thoughts that create disease.” -Judith Cornell.

Jane Hendrickson has learned how to use mandalas for personal insight through her own transformational life experiences.  She is using this insight to introduce them to others by  sharing the healing benefits of sacred art and meditation.

A Thread of connection- The law of infinite Relations. From the Buddhist Cannon. Suspended above the palace of the God Indra’s palace, who symbolizes all natural forces that protect and nurture life is an enormous net. A brilliant jewel [pearl] is attached to each of the knots that connect the net. Each jewel contains and reflects the image of all of the others jewels in the net which sparkle in the magnificence of its totality.
