The Mandala – Colorful Creations for Prayer & Meditation

Let’s turn the mandala inside out! Learn about the origin and uses of mandalas and sacred geometry. Become aware of mandalas appearing in nature, architecture and art. Working with different materials: stones and stencils, patterns and colored pencils, this retreat will be an immersion in all things mandala – complete with designing your own personal mandala and the story that goes with it.

The goal of this retreat is for individuals to find their own personal connection with this type of sacred circle and become aware of how they can use this knowledge during prayer and meditation. Each participant will create several types of mandalas during the retreat.

All materials will be provided. No art experience required.
