MANDALA DRAWING CLASSES:
In Sanskrit Mandala
literally means circle or center. Its traditional design
often utilizes the circle--symbol of the cosmos
in its entirety--and the square--symbol
of the earth or of the man-made world.
The universality of the
Mandala is in its one constant--the
principle of the center.
It can represent the Mind of God or Eternal
Potential or the Source from which all
proceeds. Very simple, very profound.
Drawing mandalas can be
a very relaxing, therapeutic vehicle for self-expression;
a good way to get to know yourself better! It's
all done with circles, symbols and shapes.
No specific artistic
talent is needed to create a mandala! If you can write your name,
you can create a mandala.
Each session will start
with a short meditation to "get you in the mood". There will be
some discussion of participant's mandalas, but
only as you feel comfortable in doing so.
There will be group projects and more
individualized ones as we move along.
I have been known to give
small amounts of "homework" for subjects that take more quiet reflection!
ADULT MANDALA CLASS: Ages 17 and up.
