“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.” — J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The Unity & Diversity Mandala is a meaningful and fun way to experience mindfulness and the meditative art of mandala-making. It’s ideal for individuals and groups seeking positive and creative ways to connect, promote peace, celebrate diversity and improve a sense of harmony, wholeness and well-being while having fun!

Workshop is 2 hours and is accompanied by inspirational readings, texts, instruction, relaxing music and a slide show. No experience necessary.

Mandala workshops are fun, relaxing visual meditations that can restore harmony, balance and a sense of wholeness and well-being to the individual, which in turn can improve and strengthen the wellness and productivity of relationships, teams, groups and ultimately, your business, family or community!

Participants leave with a meaningful mandala creation, a powerful unifying experience, and a new practice that can serve as a reminder to incorporate mindfulness into a daily routine in order to restore the 3 H’s (health, happiness & harmony) to people and planet.
