The word mandala means Circle in Sanskrit.
Circle is a universal symbol of unity and of the unbroken perfection of life. Earth, the moon, the sun, stars, and the seasons are all circular
As Native American medicine man black elk said,
"Everything the power of the world does, is done in a circle."
Come explore the circle in your body and in your soul.
As we are moving from late winter early spring, we are allowing those ideas which we have been incubating through the winter to sprout up through the earth.
This mini retreat offers you the opportunity to take time for yourself to move in the circle to create in a circle and to allow those ideas and those feelings which have been in the dark to come up and out into the light.
First we will explore yoga through Mandala sequencing, through which we embody circular movement and awakening. After a challenging and enlivening practice, we will enjoy a visualization during Savasana to help us gather those things which are stirring within us and prepare to take them into our art practice.
After a break of tea and healthy snacks, we will move into art mandalas, making visual symbols of our movement and inspiration.
