Virtual Mandala Drawing Class
Learn to Draw a Mandala
You will create your own unique and original mandala.
Twenty-two years ago, I was experiencing great pain and grief after my family of origin disowned me. My heart was broken. Discovering the process of creating mandalas saved my life.
This class will help bring a sense of balance and harmony to your life, no matter what is going on, good or bad.
At the same time, it teaches you a creative outlet to explore different aspects of yourself while using the meditative practice of drawing mandalas to focus your energy and intentions. By breaking down complex images into simpler parts, you’ll be able to access mindfulness and creative expression in a way that’s both enjoyable and calming.
Each workshop is designed to offer participants the opportunity to explore mindfulness, creativity, and fun. You don’t need any prior experience in art or mindfulness to take part – just an open mind and a willingness to experiment with your inner resources. As you spend time in the workshop, you’ll learn the basics of mandala drawing and how to use your artwork as a mindfulness tool.
You can also expect to find yourself exploring issues around self-expression and identity. Through creating a mandala, you can gain insight into patterns underlying your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors – allowing for an exploration of your inner self. As you get more comfortable with the process and deeper into your mandala, you can also start to connect with deeper truths about yourself.
The workshop combines mindfulness activities and creative exercises in a fun and interactive way, allowing participants to explore mindfulness practice in an enjoyable setting, and also provides a great way of having fun while connecting with yourself and others.
The idea is to allow participants to take part in mindfulness exercises that help them become more aware of their senses and feelings, as well as integrate creative activities into the workshop, which are designed to express feelings and explore identity.
You'll master the art of the mandala and how to create them on your own. Many students contact me months or even years later to let me know they use them with various mediums.
Benefits of the class:
When you create your mandala, you are engaging your entire brain, the left side (analytic) and the right side (creative). Time flies by. Creating a mandala is fun; it's mindful and super creative. It's a meditation on steroids.
The process is easy to follow. You will amaze yourself with what you create. Every mandala is unique - no two are alike, as you can see in all the examples on this page.
No artistic experience is necessary.
