Mandala: Creating from the Center

The mandala is a symmetrical design that has historically appeared in art forms, architecture and ceremonies around the world. This day retreat is designed to introduce participants to the experience and practice of creating their own, unique expression. The creative process, shared with others, can be a powerful experience and is an art technique that is accessible to everyone.

When creating a personal mandala, full attention is placed on the experience, in the present moment. A completed mandala is a guiding means for meditation and self-reflection; we can see ourselves, with perspective and compassion.
