Don’t miss this amazing workshop!

Mandala: the Sacred Art of Centering Your Self

Where: Academy of Art, Creativity and Consciousness, Ananda, Assissi Italy.

When: 3-8 July 2011

Mandala is a Sanskrit  word that means “circle”, signifying the primordial shape that represents wholeness, completeness and unity. In many cultures, and throughout time, the Mandala has been used as a template for sacred art because it represents the centering of the self in alignment with the cosmos. Carl Jung used the Mandala as a powerful therapeutic tool, a way of accessing more profound levels of our being. In this week we will explore many varieties of this sacred form, including principles of sacred geometry, the Yantra and the labyrinth. In hands on creative play, each participant will be guided in a process of inwardly centering deep within themselves, while outwardly creating their own unique Mandala. We will also together create a meditative labyrinth, using the template from the Chartres cathedral.
