We are Rita and Miguel, a couple living in Estoril, Portugal in a special place nearby the Atlantic Ocean. It is in this place looking out to the magnificent mountains of Sintra where our "Enchanted Forest" lives. We share our cosy and lovely apartment with our three beautiful young sons.
I’m Rita, I have a passion for mandalas, design, and for the magic of numbers. As a child, one of my favorite toys was a kaleidoscope with which I created countless mandalas, it was always so special and fun. Encouraged by my family, I graduated in management, and my passion for the arts was set aside. When our oldest son was born, 21 years ago, I quit my day job and became a full-time mother. And since then I left the power of the goddess, the power of the feminine was reborn within me, my creativity has expanded and I began draw again and to create new enchanted worlds, guided by my love within me and with the sustenance of our beloved Mother-Earth.
We are both Anura Paths (Caminhos de Anura) Therapists and Reiki Energy Healing and Karuna Practitioners.
⤖ Where do we get inspiration?
We get inspiration mainly from Mother Nature. We love to walk in nature, to enjoy the smell of flowers, to touch the wise ancient trees, to observe the beauty of butterflies and to listen the birds' melodies. We love dipping our feet in the ocean and feeling the power of its waters. To be awed by the vast colors of a sunrise or sunset. To watch the stars from the top of the mountains these things we love to do. We are also passionate about sacred geometry, crystals and gemstones and truly believe in all kind of magic worlds where fairies, elves, dragons and other magical creatures live. And of course we get inspiration from our true essence, Love.
⤖ How is it all created?
Our creative process is very intuitive. All the mandalas and all the jewelry are created with consciousness, love and harmony in our lovely home studio. For me, Rita, each mandala brings a surprise in its creation. I let my heart fly and my intuition flow through the energy of the moment. Our clients share with us that they feel the healing vibe and energy that blossoms from each of our mandalas and it is something so amazing and sooo magical! We are so grateful for that.
