Day One Saturday May 21st

10am - 1pm
Mandala Meditation


Art making for the purpose of transcendence, mindfulness, and wellness.
Traditionally, the mandala is used as a meditation tool to search for the meaning of self.
This often requires a study of this diagram which we may call the "personality" - the part of ourselves which bares witness to our vast invisible potential.

Creating your own personal mandala is therapeutic, symbolic & a beautiful refelction of ones own soul. Present emotions will be represented in your mandala through the use of organically formed shapes & colour. By allowing your instinct and feelings to inspire & guide you through the process of creation, a portrait of yourself will emerge. 
When you reach your destination, you will have a representation of something meaningful and personal that you can take home with you -​ A snapshot of you - a brief moment in time expressed through your unique personal mandala
