What is a Mandala?
Loosely translated, Mandala means “sacred circle” and consists of patterns of designs that radiate out from a unified center. It is an ancient art practice for healing and meditation which originated in India and Tibet over 6,000 years ago and has been used all over the world.
Psychologist Carl Jung brought the mandala from the East to the Western world and used it to help diagnose his patients. He believed the mandala is “symbolic of the inner process by which individuals grow toward fulfilling their potential for wholeness.”
We don’t do any diagnosing, but after teaching Mandala Art Workshops since 2004, we have witnessed first-hand how profound, uplifting and transforming the experience can be.
