This workshop is an invitation to explore Mandala as a way of connecting to your creative spirit. In this two-day workshop you will be introduced to the idea of personal Mandala making. We will work to create several basic Mandalas using different mediums in different styles and with different intentions. A beautiful and fulfilling opportunity to express your inner creativity with this ancient craft!
By creating your own personal mandalas you will begin to tap into the power of the mandala as a personal tool of healing and insight into your own life.
In this workshop we will:
- Learn about the healing properties of Mandalas
- Setting personal intentions through mandalas to bring in growth and change
- Indulge in artistic and creative meditation
- Using various techniques to create mandalas that will include sacred geometry to imbibe positive energies and bring a sense of wholeness
No artistic ability or experience is needed. If you can sign your name, you can draw beautiful mandalas! The main aim is to express yourself rather than make a ‘perfect’ work of art.
What is a Mandala?
Mandala, a Sanskrit word, represents the Universe. Mandalas can be found in nature and in the art of all cultures. Simply put, a mandala is a circle with a design in the center. Psychologists and spiritual leaders have used mandalas as a tool for self-reflection and self-exploration through the ages; they have intrigued cultures around the world, from Celtic spirals and Indian mehendi to medival church labyrinths.
