Stephanie's talk is sub-titled "What I Learned from Making 10,000 Mandalas." Stephanie holds a strong belief that process-based art practices are powerful tools for transformative personal growth. Our harsh inner critic can be temporarily silenced by removing the focus on quality, so that anyone may receive the many physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits that art-making has to offer.

Self-taught artist Stephanie Smith has been working for the last ten years with the sacred circular art form known as mandala as a self-reflective meditative practice. She has, to date, created over 10,000 pieces of mandala art in a wide variety of expressive mediums. She is a resident artist at the Banana Factory Arts Center in South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
