Imagine walking into a huge space and laid before you is an enormous mandala. The mandala is made up of thousands of disks created by people from 50 states, 54 countries, and all 7 continents. On these circles school children from Bosnia, monks from Tibet, refugees from Syria, mothers from Egypt, survivors from Nigeria, millennials from Germany, families from Australia have all written or drawn their Hopes for Humanity. You can walk through this mandala and it will change the way you think about the world, enlighten and delight you. As one participant put it, “Chill bumps, on chill bumps, on chill bumps.”

Sonia Osio is a celebrated international musician and visual artist who began the Mandala six years ago when her grandson felt hopeless about the tough things going on in the world and they were looking for some hope for humanity. It has evolved into a record-breaking creative endeavor spanning nearly every country in the world and all major world religions. Unity North Atlanta is proud to host the Mandala before it’s next stop in Europe.
