Mandalas for Meditation

Mandalas have been called “sacred circles” and are believed to represent balance and unity. Making mandalas is a way of speaking with parts of ourselves that are not usually accessible through the conscious mind. In this workshop, art therapist Rebecca Wilkinson will walk you through how to use mandalas to focus, clear the mind, and get into a pleasing state of flow. Come discover the meditative world of mandalas! Absolutely no artistic experience is necessary.
