Mandala means circle in Sanskrit. This word is also known as wheel and all.
Beyond its definition as a word, from the spiritual point of view is an energy center balancing and cleansing that helps transform the environment and the mind.

It is also defined as a container ideographic system of a sacred space.

Mandalas are used since ancient times. Have their origin in India and spread in Eastern cultures, where Native American and Aboriginal Australia.

In Western culture, was Carl G. Jung, who used therapies in order to achieve the pursuit of individuality in humans.

Jung used to interpret your dreams by drawing a mandala each day in this activity discovered the relationship they had with their heart and from there developed a theory about the structure of the human psyche.

According to Carl Jung, mandalas represent the totality of mind, covering both the conscious and the unconscious. He stated that the archetype of these drawings is firmly anchored in the collective subconscious.

The mandalas are also defined as a cosmological diagram which can be used for meditation. It consists of a series of concentric geometric forms arranged in different visual levels. The most basic forms used are: circles, triangles, squares and rectangles.

These figures can be created in a two-dimensional or three dimensional.
For example, in India there are a large number of temples made in the form of mandalas.

The designs are varied, but maintained similar characteristics: a content center and cardinal points in circles and arranged with a certain symmetry.

According to psychology, the mandala represents the human being. Interacting with them helps to heal the psychic and spiritual fragmentation, to express your creativity and reconnect with your essential being.

It's like starting a journey into your heart, it opens doors previously unknown and calls forth your inner wisdom. Integrate into your life will give you the feeling center and calm amid the storms.

The work of meditation with mandalas may consist of observation or drawing them.
In the first case, only to sit in a comfortable, rhythmic breathing and achieve a deep and dispose yourself to observe a mandala of your choice, can lead to a relaxed state and feel more alert to the events that happen around you . The observation process can last between three and five minutes.

To do this, choose a model that inspires you, select the tools (crayons, markers, watercolors, for example), then Settle into a quiet place. You can put music if you like and start your work.

There are various techniques, it all depends on your mood and what you want to paint the mandala you forward. If you feel you need help to externalize your emotions, you can color from the inside out, if instead, you find your center, paint from the inside out.

This is a job that can make anyone, regardless of their age or religion. It is a simple practice that will result in personal benefits and the achievement of internal balance.

In the second case, you can draw or color mandalas. We recommend that if you vinculándote with these images, start by painting.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
