“Each person’s life is like a mandala – a vast limitless circle.  We stand in the center of our own circle, and everything we see, hear and think forms the mandala of our life.”

– Pema Chodron

quote from https://www.mandalamind.org/blog/2015/01/22/7-essential-quotes-on-the-mandala

 

In this eight week course we will be creating mandala art. Mandala is a Sanskrit word which means circle. In many cultures the circle is a symbol for wholeness and healing. Making mandala’s involves using simple geometric shapes that in-clude not only circles but also squares and triangles, then adding your own unique expression through the additions of lines, drawings, paper shapes and more. It can often be a meditative and relaxing experience. Join us in a reflective process of self-discovery and healing. We will focus on creating from a sense of freshness, wonder and curiosity. There will be opportunities to share art creations and in-sights within the group. We will work with some mindfulness practices and re-flection to still the mind and connect within.

  • journal and pen for reflections
