Flower Mandala – Pink Coneflower


Pink Coneflower ©2105 Bo Mackison

Creating the flower mandalas has evolved into a daily “slow” practice for me. The ritual of walking through one of the city’s gardens, choosing which flower to photograph, and creating the image so it captures the essence of the flower as I see it.

Such joy for me. And, so grateful that I can share these mandalas and offer this joy to my friends.

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Stunning Bo! The vibrant petals guided me in to the centre and then I was swirled around myriad paths until I was drawn to the outer circle once again. Beautiful, thank you.
