11:11 - it's a significant date for sure! And I am delighted it is the day to be bringing this workshop to Sligo to the studio of the wonderful Amanda Grace! 11:11 is a number imbued with mystery, synchronicity and high vibrations.

“11:11 is the Universe knocking itself out to give you evidence of your alignment.” ~ Abraham Hicks

This will be a powerful date to do mandala work. The perfect day to awaken the self through the art of Mandala in this highly experiential one-day workshop. Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning circle, yet it is far more than just a simple shape. It represents wholeness, the structure of life itself, and is a container for your essence, energy and spirit. We will be working with the symbol of the Labyrinth which is ancient and draws you deep within. I'd love for you to set your intention of what you would like to manifest into your life prior to the workshop. Creating a Mandala with intention is a very powerful experience. This is a time to clarify the things that you truly wish to create and to manifest into your life. The key to this experience is to show up with an open heart, an open mind and a willingness to be open to all possibilities.


This workshop will teach you the art of mandala making and you will create your own mandala during the day. Through intention setting, meditation and group interaction you will embark on the journey of mandala. Experience clarity, harmony, peace and inner happiness as you work with your mandala. When we allow ourselves a creative still space, we have more clarity, this is the time to take a new action to birth new projects. Come listen to your heart, enhance your intuitive guidance and open to your creativity and manifestation. All materials will be provided on the day and absolutely no previous art experience is required.

At the beginning of the workshop, I will explain my journey and experiences with Mandalas and what they mean for me. We will then do a short awareness meditation together, feeling where it is in our mind, body and spirit that we need to work on with our Mandala and what it is we truly wish to manifest in our lives. After the meditation, we will begin on the journey of creating mandala and work in silence together, focusing on our intention and the piece.

There will be an hours break for lunch and feel free to bring along a packed lunch if you like, or there is a wonderful coffee shop onsite who have a fab selection of healthy salads, soups and sandwiches and have great vegetarian options. The market will also be on that day at the Craft Village, and there will be lovey food available there too! It sounds like I might need to send a search party for you to get you back after lunch, but when I round you up, we will then return to our creations and keeping in the flow the energy of our experience, I will guide you on a deep Yoga Nidra Meditation which will seed the experience within.

Creating a mandala without thought and fully experiencing the present moment is the key of self awakening. Listen to your body and be guided by your intuition. The mandala reflects your true self.

"After drawing my circles with the compass, I relaxed into a meditative, quiet space and let my hand be guided into creating shapes and choosing the colours. In this stillness, questions, insights arose from a deep place, reminding me of what my heart and soul is really seeking. Since that day, whenever I now look at my Mandala, I am taken back to that place of stillness and centeredness. Thank you Patricia for creating that space." Noreen O'Donoghoe, participant at Mandala Workshop at The October Gallery London, 8th November 2014.

A little about mandalas

The word mandala comes from Sanskrit means circle, centre, circumference, sacred circle or magic circle. In eastern spiritual traditions, a mandala is a form of sacred art that depicts the totality of the self. In Islamic tradition also, the mandala features amongst their most beautiful mosques and illuminated manuscripts. In Christianity too….think of those beautiful stain glass windows throughout the ages. Ancient Celtic art, Vedic art, Meso-American, Native American, Aboriginal, Hindu, Taoist and indeed all faiths feature the powerful mandala. Swiss-German psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung found the mandala which is such an ancient archetypal manifestation that appears in all Eastern and Western religions, mythology and rituals – to be a powerful tool for growth and transformation, a symbol of wholeness.

The mandala represents both the self and world. The universe itself is a mandala. The earth, sun and moon are round. Everything alive – plants, animals and human beings – consists of cells. Each cell is a mandala. Even the seasons and the life cycle of human beings is a circle, so it is in everything where power moves. The circle is the symbol of one, wholeness and centering. It represents infinity and eternity, having no beginning and no end.
