Mandala art has been used throughout the world for self-expression, spiritual transformation, and personal growth. Mandala is the ancient Sanskrit word for circle and is seen by Tibetans as a diagram of the cosmos. It is used by Native Americans in healing rituals and in Christian cathedrals the labyrinth is a mandalic pattern used as a tool for meditation. An archetypal symbol of wholeness, the mandala was used as a therapeutic art tool by psychologist Carl Jung, who believed creating mandalas helped patients to make the unconscious conscious.
In creating a mandala we open ourselves to all the possibilities that exist inside and outside of us.
During this workshop we will concentrate on painting personal mandalas that will help us deal with a particular personal problem or work as a tool to manifest our dream or goal into our reality. This process will help you awaken your own creative powers and connect with your heart to find the best possible ways to become the happy person you strive to be! It is also a great way of meditating and finding inner peace – when you paint in peaceful, warm and open atmosphere, the whole world disappears …
Class is open to anyone, no previous experience or art skills are required. This is an intuitive painting workshop, and even if you haven’t painted before, you can do it! All materials are provided.
