Mandalas are drawings inside circles and have a rich and cross-cultural place in healing. The word mandala is Sanskrit for “circle”. Mandala artwork is represented cross culturally and historically and includes Buddhist sand mandalas, yantras and maybe even crop circles. They may be made of colored sand, chalk, paint or crayon and incorporate geometrics based on sacred geometry as well as personal imagery. Carl Jung thought the mandala a perfect format for self-portraits, glancing at the unconscious mind and healing the emotions. He reintroduced mandalas to the Western world.
During this 6 week series Jas Milam, artist and art therapist, will offer participants a chance to create their own mandalas in many materials and styles and learn more about the use of mandalas in a daily practice.
