For Immediate Release
THE MANDALA COLLECTION™ OFFERS
FOR HEALING THE "SPIRIT" OF AMERICA
Unique, Online Collection of
Transformational Gifts and Tools
LOS ANGELES, CA, October 25, 2001 – SoulfulLiving.com, an
award-winning, monthly guide to personal and spiritual growth,
announces the launch of its new online retail store, "The
Mandala Collection" http://www.themandalacollection.com.
The Mandala Collection invites its customers to
"journey to their centers" using its unique
collection of mandala gifts and tools as catalysts, designed
to inspire healing, reflection, stress reduction, balance, and
Mandalas are sacred circles, used for thousands of years as
powerful transformational tools for healing, prayer and
meditation. They are found in many cultural and spiritual
traditions, in many forms, including Tibetan and Native
American sand paintings, Hindu Yantras, Gothic rose windows,
and sacred labyrinths. In more recent years, mandalas have
found use in classrooms, workshops, and community and therapy
settings, as tools for enhancing creativity, connection,
healing, and wholeness.
The transformational items featured in The Mandala
Collection have been hand-selected for their beauty, grace,
and quality, and for their authentic and meaningful nature.
Many of the items are handcrafted, supporting artisans and
craftspeople from around the world. Stories on product pages
offer customers a glimpse into the handicraft traditions and
techniques of each craft, as well as an understanding of how
the craft supports the regional culture.
The Mandala Collection makes its debut just in time for the
Holiday 2001 Gift-Giving Season, offering over 300 items, in
seven unique product categories, including Body Adornments,
Gifts and Tools, Paper Products, Candles and Incense, Art
Prints and Decals, Fabric Finds, and Home Decoration.
An online "Gift Center" provides customers with a
selection of mandala-themed Gift-Wrap options, a Personal
Shopper service, Gift Certificates, and a special collection
