Once again, thanks to those of you (55 backers and counting, so far!) who have already supported the Project. The “Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas” book has been a six-year effort, and your pledges and support are greatly appreciated! Thanks to your generosity, the Project is more than three-fourths of the way to making its September 14th goal.

Your contributions to this Kickstarter project are intended not only to help me complete the “Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas” book, but also to kickstart the larger Flower Mandalas Project. The “Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas” book is the first step in what I see to be a four-stage process:

- Create and publish the Book
- Create a traveling Exhibition in print and multimedia form and display it primarily in healing institutions
- Establish a foundation for promoting art as a healing and transformative activity
- Help to fund and promote artistic projects aimed at healing and transformation

Please support this Project before the September 14th deadline to help this dream can become a reality. Every contribution, no matter how small, really ishelpful, and also demonstrates your belief in promoting art as a healing and transformative means.

Thanks again,

"Everything Happens for a Reason" I often hear the phrase "Everything happens for a reason" when I talk with people about their lives. The usual context is that something unexpected, often something bad, has occurred either in the distant past or more recently, and with a philosophical shrug and a
