The Art of Meditation through the Mandala

Over the last few years, the popularity of the “adult coloring book” has exploded. These books tap into something that many of us feel is lacking in our daily lives: space for relaxation, meditation, and escape from the overstimulating culture we live in. Join this six-week course to become the artist of your own meditative pages of patterns. We’ll begin with a look into the history of the mandala, the beautifully symmetrical form first created as a tool for ancient Buddhist meditation. Through our study of the mandala we will discover the rich possibility for symbolism and spirituality in art, experience the calming effect of working with repetition, and practice creating our own intricate mazes of line and color. Come celebrate the patterns of daily life and discover the deep soothing power of the mandala.
