Art making for the purpose of transcendence, mindfulness, and wellness.
. . .
Traditionally, the mandala is used as a meditation tool to search for the meaning of self. This often requires a study of this diagram which we may call the "personality" - the part of ourselves which bares witness to our vast invisible potential.
The very nature of creating a mandala is therapeutic and symbolic. The shapes and colours you create in your mandala art therapy will reflect your inner self at the time of creation. Using ones instinct and feeling should inspire and guide you through the process of creation.
Ultimately, you will be creating a portrait of yourself. Whatever you are feeling at that time, whatever emotions are coming through, will be represented in your mandala art therapy.
Once you have enjoyed creating your mandala, it has already served its purpose for you. We will together learn to the laws of impermanence and step into the wonderful world of "process art"
Your Mandala is a representation of you. A snapshot - a brief moment in time spontaneously expressed through your unique personal mandala.

Love Notes >>
“I have always thought & believed art should be offered and accessible to everyone, its not about grades, technique. it's about self expression. Visual art is extremely therapeutic, euphoric and joyful. I have been experimenting with the concept of Mandalas and how process art offers something that is not too scary; it feels more free and safe. As soon as a feeling of trust takes over, people respond with powerful unique creations. Their minds unfold rapidly, reflecting and shedding the chatter along with their personality and current emotional state …Someone once said that The mind is a good servant but a bad master; Humans are so tied up in our minds we tend to lose our senses. By collaborating with art and nature, we gift our senses the time and space to listen."
"Essentially - the point can’t be explained in words because art is not words - but after a while you will understand the point and that point will be the art itself."
