with Eileen “Rosie” Rose and Dr. Michael Garger
“The mandala is an archetypal image whose occurrence is attested throughout the ages. It signifies the wholeness of the Self.” – Carl G. Jung
In many spiritual traditions, the mandala is considered a symbol for wholeness and is used as a focal point for meditation and introspection. – When you move deeply into the process of creating a mandala and enter into the sacred circle, you awaken to the energetic essence of your true self…your luminous self, and open yourself up to profound healing.
Join us at CoSM where we will intuitively receive and illuminate sacred symbols.
Creating mandalas in an active meditation combining the mindfulness based practices of art and spirituality to achieve a greater connection with the authentic Self.
We will develop body/mind awareness using simple Chi Kung movements in order to enhance and direct our energies.
• Creating luminous mandalas that express your Inner Light
• Moving beyond your ego and connect with your true inner self
• Improving your life using positive intentions
• Opening your heart to the flow of pure, unconditional love
• Recognizing and appreciating the gift in every moment
• Mindfulness techniques that transform old “programming” and subconscious patterns
The weekend will include a releasing burning ritual.
All participants, regardless of artistic ability or previous knowledge will create a variety of luminous mandalas using colored pencils on black paper and other materials. Our techniques are simple, straightforward while being deeply focused and profound.
Join us for this heart opening, empowering weekend of immersing yourself in the sacred circle.
Supply list will be sent upon registration.
