Circular forms in art are often referred to as mandalas, the Sanskrit word for Mandala is sacred circle. Mandalas are circular designs that represent wholeness that goes beyond the human body to the vast universe and all it contains.
We will be honouring the circle and gathering to celebrate the autumn colours through chanting, breath work, yoga, and art.
Mandala making offers a spiritual practice and creating them brings a calm state of mind that is open to creation, while the same time draws focus and reflection. When you create your own mandala, think of it as an echo of your soul.
