In this unique workshop we will explore what mandalas are, who you are, and how we can use nature to express that in an original way. All you need to bring is your creativity!
Mandala is an ancient sanskrit word meaning circle (or cycle) often related to the present moment. In this workshop we will explore different kinds of mandalas, collect pieces of nature that speak to us for our own mandala, and create a masterpiece that expresses YOU in that very moment. Samgha in sanskrit means community. Sharing is how we create community, therefore, when we are finished creating our mandalas, we will share a bit of ourselves. In learning from and being inspired by what others have created, we share a moment in Samgha.
Please bring a camera to take a picture, for when we are complete, you will return your mandala back to nature to complete the cycle.
