Join me for this Mandala Mindfulness Workshop Dublin – a day of silence, creativity, community and nourishment as we practice mindfulness together, and work individually on creating our own unique mandala.
Mandalas have been used throughout the world for self-expression, spiritual transformation, and personal growth. Mandala is the ancient Sanskrit word for circle, and is seen by Tibetans as a diagram of the cosmos. It is used by Native Americans in healing rituals and in Christian cathedrals the labyrinth is a mandalic pattern used as a tool for meditation. An archetypal symbol of wholeness, the mandala was used as a therapeutic art tool by psychologist Carl Jung, who believed creating mandalas helped patients to make the unconscious conscious.
In creating a mandala we open ourselves to all the possibilities that exist inside and outside of us.
During this Mandala Workshop each of us we will concentrate on creating our own personal mandala that will help us deal with a particular issue, or help us to uncover our deepest hearts desires. This gentle workshop is open to anyone, no previous experience of Mindfulness, or Mandalas are require
