Mandala

MANDALA is a Sanskrit word for the "circle". In various spiritual traditions, mandalas are made for focusing attention, as a spiritual teaching tool, for establishing a sacred space and as an help for meditation. When mandala is present in a space it's radiating positive and calming energy.

Eco living

Time that we live in requires changes in thinking and living. Each year we're producing more waste and if we will continue like this... hm, we and other beings, will soon run out off space for living. So, if you don't:

reduce        reuse        recycle 

... jet, would be a good time to start - NOW!

If you are building a home you can think about how can you build your house to be environmentally friendly. I posted below a beautiful house made from natural materials from Simon Dale, photographer, designer and fine artist. He build his family house with his father-in-law in four months (1000-1500 working hours & for £3000!). Read more about his home and his other projects here.
