Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning both circle (the visible world outside of us) and centre (the visible world deep inside our minds and bodies). A mandala represents a sacred space and it also tells a story, the story of a journey that we can follow from our everyday world to our serene inner centre, leading us to a deeper understanding of the universe and of our self. When we draw a mandala we can create an image of our inner selves, draw an image of a perfect world and aspire to its expression of harmony. In creating a mandala we open ourselves to all possibilities that exist inside and outside of us, and we can listen to the dreams of our heart, mind and soul and give them shape and colour inside the circle.
During this day we will explore traditional mandalas and those found in nature; the attributes of the colours used in a mandala and the key these colours hold to a persons state of well being. Students will create and interpret their own mandala through the colours and patterns they have used to create it. They will then explore how mandalas can be used as a tool for meditation and healing
