|About||A class for those interested in exploring the therapeutic potential of the mandala, and how to use the circle as a tool for deeper self-understanding.|
Mandalas are not reserved for the experienced artist! Anyone who has an open mind and an interest in learning more about themselves through the act of creative expression can make a meaningful mandala! Whether you are a seasoned artist, or drawing is something that you have always been curious about, the magic of the mandala lies in the PROCESS, not the product! The insight you will gain about yourself from mandalas stem from the simple process of creating something that communicates a meaningful, symbolic message to YOU, rather than sacrificing authenticity for the sake of irrelevant, but aesthetically pleasing attributes.
The process of creating mandalas can be a pleasant release from the “perfectionist” attitude society has developed towards art. It is common for people to feel the pressure to meet a certain aesthetic standard when making art, discouraging many people from even attempting to create art after childhood. This is outrageous! WE ARE ALL ARTISTS with immense potential to share our inner beauty with ourselves, at the very least! I find that making a mandala brings me back to the root, the purpose of creating art with a light-hearted sense of spontaneity and acceptance, and gives me a refreshing perspective that steers me away from creative blocks and frustration! Take your first step towards realizing the artist within you by liking this page and getting a stream of inspiration, encouragement to create, sacred knowledge, and more!
