Community Mandala Project’s mission is to inspire, empower, strengthen and transform people and communities. We offer Mandala, Zentangle and Meditative Art Workshops that help you relax, restore, focus, rejuvenate and manifest the positive changes you desire in life. Workshops can be fun and whimsical or you can go deep and do personal growth work. In our workshops, you’ll set an intention for your expressive work, access your creativity and use the power of your stories while developing empathy and connection to self, others and nature. This process can be a very powerful and profound one. It can help you overcome obstacles and heal yourself naturally from pain, trauma, loss, depression, anxiety, disease and more. There are also benefits to those in all types of recovery.



Workshops are developed with a great deal of thought and planning and are designed and taught by Donna Gentile of New Hartford, CT. Donna has been teaching Mandala and other Meditative Art Workshops in CT and around New England since 2004 and has worked with incredible organizations including:
