have been known to transform and renew the body, mind and spirit. Mazurek wants to teach others about the “Mandala Message” in her spiritual workshops through energy medicine, unique body-based techniques, art exercises, meditation and visualization. Mazurek is passionate when she says, “Wherever you are in your life right now, Mandalas hold an answer for you.” The purpose of the workshops are to gain a new perspective on life, have fun and be inspired. No previous art experience is necessary and all ages can participate. Mazurek recently held a class at the City of Miramar Fairway Child Care Center and is ready to travel to all interested schools in Broward County. During her retirement she hopes to continue sharing this passion with others. She also plans on completing two book manuscripts. One is the “Mandala Message” which will be the handbook at the workshops and the other is a spiritual memoir about the synchronous connections between people. Travel plans are also in the works, and one day she hopes to get back on stage to perform.
