Create your own mandala ~ Flower of Life

“Every desire can be turned into a mandala which clears and resolves any issues that you choose to work on. These Mandala’s emit only a very high vibration energy frequency, that automatically eliminates any incompatible one, cleansing and bringing into balance all the elements of your being.

This means clearing any emotional and mental block that a person has around a specific issue resulting in many positive changes and a greater inner clarity. Creating Mandalas can heal both yourself as well as the loved ones.”

Dr. Irina Budimir

Explore the ancient wisdom of the sacred art and science of the Mandala to effectively awaken your soul. Using the expressive art of the mandala, meditation, prayer and intentionality, you can investigate unique ways to surmount the challenges of life, open to expanding creativity, and increase your experience of joy, love and wholeness. Emphasize on process, not product.

Use the Mandalas to add beauty  to your home or personal space, as a focus for quiet meditation  or contemplation, in a healing process, or combined with sound  and/or light in your own sacred process or ritual. They make  great gifts for friends and family.

Subtle yet powerful, mandalas help to stabilize, re-arrange,

and integrate Body Mind and Spirit.

As we turn inward to investigate the mind, we discover our essential nature and innate wisdom. Mandalas access progressively deeper levels of the unconscious and the source of creativity. Mandala’s circular designs suggest the notion that life is never ending; they represent wholeness.

They are a symbolic illustration reminding us of our relationship to infinity, extending beyond, at infinite micro and macro scales, within our bodies, minds and imagination. Using a variety of simple techniques and exercises we will work with weekly themes to discover our individual reference points of power, inspiration and dreams. Music and visualizations will be incorporated throughout our explorations.

These workshops are about self-discovery through an easy process and focus on the experience rather than the product. No previous painting experience is needed. All supplies are included.  If you have favourite paper, brushes or paint feel free to bring them along.
