Mindfulness Mandalas Class

Mandala is a Sanskrit word for circle. It represents wholeness, a reminder of the infinite world that is inside of us and that also spreads outside of our realm.

Most mandalas have a center point out of which everything radiates. It can be made of symbols, shapes, and forms — any of which may be geometric or organic.

The Mindfulness Mandala class includes guided meditations to help you take a break from the pressures of daily life. There is time to intentionally inhale and exhale, to become centered and present in your life.

Creating your own mandala is both inspirational and therapeutic. It is an enriching experience as you look inside yourself to find shapes, patterns and colors that reflect your personality.

Get in touch with your soul and express what is in your heart by creating a mandala that is uniquely you. Knowing the basics to design a mandala will give you freedom to try new techniques or colors for any mandalas you wish to create.

You will learn three different ways to construct a mandala.

Paint Your Word of the Year Class

Choose a word for the year, an intentional word that speaks to your soul. One powerful word can inspire and encourage you through the whole year. It’s better than setting a resolution.

Morning — Start with a WORD.

I’ll take you through some simple exercises to help you figure out your word of the year. This will become a mantra to propel you courageously and intentionally forward. It will be a word to remind you of who you want to be throughout the year, and help you access your inner wisdom and will guide you as life happens.

Afternoon — Paint your WORD

No art training or prior experience required. Learn painting and mixed media skills to create a rich, layered background to plant your word. This is wonderfully messy work on paper using paint, paint markers, collage, stamps and stencils.

Let go of knowing what to do or how to do it. Open your heart to the unexpected! By the end of the day your painted word of the year will be ready for framing.
