Experience art and connection; celebrate team spirit; reinforce your mission, goals and objectives; promote your cause or business; have fun making vibrant, meaningful and branded art to hang or give away!
The whole is only as strong as its parts. The Community Mandala Puzzle™ is a unique group experience that involves meditative coloring and the building of a 44″ x 44″ mandala in the spirit of community that inspires, empowers and strengthens individuals, groups, businesses and brands.
Participants add colors, symbols and text to puzzle pieces while experiencing the many benefits of meditative coloring to mind, body and spirit. Individual creations are pieced together to form a vibrant community design. Every puzzle is different and unique to the group, even when we start with the same template.
Puzzle design is customized to incorporate power words, logos, symbols, taglines and missions of your businesses, organization, event or group. This is a wonderful way to strengthen both your employees or group members as well as your brand.
Mandala Art Workshops are fun, relaxing visual meditations that can restore harmony, balance and a sense of wholeness and well-being to the individual. When people are happier, they are healthier, positive and more productive. They engage more positively in relationships and in work and play.
Give your employees, staff or group a fun meditative art experience to improve and strengthen the wellness and productivity of individuals, relationships, teams, groups and ultimately, your business, family or community!
Workshop is 1.5 to 2 hours and is accompanied by inspirational readings, texts, instruction, relaxing music and a slide show. No experience necessary.
Participants leave with a meaningful experience and practice for promoting self-care, relaxation, self-healing and wellness. Mini mandalas are also shared so participants have additional designs to work on and take home with them. Your company or organization leaves with a one-of-a-kind art installation piece to hang on the wall as a way to communicate your brand and engage passers by – or gift this incredible artwork to an organization, partner agency, community initiative or cause!
