Mandalas for Mourning

October 01, 2019

This month, I'm excited to announce that I'm combining my training in pastoral care with my sand art. On any date you choose, I would be honored to make a mandala in remembrance of a loved one, or to mark a difficult anniversary. Please contact me for a consultation.

Mandalas for Mourning

Loss and change disrupt our sense of security.


On the anniversary of a loss, 

or as a way to cope with unexpected change, 

a ritual can reground the unsteady heart 

and help us process the many colors grief. 


Rev. Katie Jo creates 


meaningful images, 

made of sand. 


Her mandalas remain long enough for you and your family 

to tell stories, to take deep breaths, and to let go. 

Then, the picture is brushed away 

and the sand is returned to nature.


Please consider

 commissioning Katie Jo 

to make a mandala in your home or place of worship.


Her delicate, healing art is a beautiful way to honor a loss

And cope with life’s disrupting changes.
