Mandala Workshop Intro from Deborah Everton on Vimeo.
The word Mandala is from the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit roughly translating to mean a circle or center radiating out. Not just a simple shape, but a circle in every sense of the concept. Mandalas appear in all aspects of life: the heavenly bodies of the sun, moon, and stars, flowers and plant life, as well as conceptual circles of family, friends. and community. It reminds us of the worlds existing both within us and beyond us.
The psychoanalyst, Carl Jung, saw the mandala as "a representation of the unconscious self," and believed his paintings of mandalas enabled him to identify emotional disorders and work towards wholeness in personality.
What we are going for is the fun, beauty and peace found in creating a Mandala rather than a spiritual or psychoanalytic aspect...but you just might find that as well! Our Mandala will be a beautiful, shabby creation of your very own. Take care....mandalas are addicting! Like potato chips...you can't have just one !
