The Soul Work of Making Mandalas

  • Chrysalis Institute 213 Roseneath Road Richmond, VA 23221 (map)

Ever looked closely at a spiderweb or a snowflake? Then you’ve seen a mandala. More than just geometric patterns, mandalas have been used for centuries for focusing attention, meditation, and enlightened transformation. Using music and movement to drop into a light, non-ordinary state of consciousness, we’ll design mandalas using oil pastels. Evolve and awaken your inner self that you may not be in touch with on a daily basis.

This is for you if you:

  • Are interested in the cultural and spiritual history of mandalas

  • Would like to tap into your creativity

  • Want to experiment with making mandalas as self-exploration
