Description

In Sanskrit mandala means ‘circle’.

It is a spiritual symbol which represents the universe. However, the term "mandala" can be used for any diagram or geometric pattern within a circle. In various spiritual traditions, mandalas are used to focus attention, aid meditation and trance induction as well as creating sacred space.

This event has been designed to help you create your own mandalas.

  • You will experience two short meditations which will help to generate positive states from which you will be able to access your inner creativity .

  • You will be shown simple tools and techniques that will help you create beautiful and inspiring images.

  • You will get connect with like-minded people, share ideas and stories.

  • Canvases and all art supplies will be provided.


Mandalas have been in use since th e4th Century. They were re-introduced to the West by Carl Jung, the Swiss psychoanalyst, due to his familiarity with writings from India. He believed that circle drawings reflected the inner state of the ‘artist’ or ‘doodler’ at that moment. In his autobiography, Memories, Dreams, Reflections he said:

“Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is: ... the Self, the wholeness of the personality, which if all goes well is harmonious.”

Jung believed that the urge to make mandalas emerged during moments of intense personal growth and that their creation led to a profound re-balancing process in the psyche; a better integrated personality, a restoration of a previously existing order, as well as creatively giving expression and form to something that did not yet exist, something new and unique.

In short creating mandalas helps to stabilize, integrate, and re-order the inner life.
