About the event

Mandalas represent the symbolism of the universe through balance.

Learning to create our own mandalas allows us to meditate through drawing and observation, bringing tranquility and relaxation to our inner being.

When we create and color mandalas we prevent negative mental states, such as anxiety, stress or anguish thus encouraging creativity, which immediately leads us to raise our vibration.


The mandala art projects in this program are centered around the intention of cultivating loving-kindness and compassion. Each activity includes a guided meditation that invites your attention to the present moment, opens a sacred conversation with your inner wise self, and gently awakens creative flow.

In our creative practice, we’ll work with the five elements, bringing a sweet vigilance to

  • air: observing our thoughts
  • water: feeling our emotions
  • earth: listening to our bodies
  • fire: awakening our creative spirit
  • ether: connecting to the stilness 

The projects include creating heart chakra mandala art that opens the energy center of love, compassion, and acceptance; the Torus Yantra, a sacred symbol that reflects the expansive energy of the heart center; and a mandala with four gates to illustrate the four elements and four aspects of the self.

This program is for you if you want to give yourself a gift of creative expression that nurtures your body, mind, emotions, and spirit. You’ll go home with new skills, two-three pieces of unique mandala art, a greater awareness of self, and ideas for an on-going creative practice.
