Event description

Description

Creating a Mandala connects us with our true nature, centering us fully in the energy of NOW – the present moment. It opens up the valve of creativity, of self awareness, of healing. Creating mandalas is an active meditation enhancing our personal growth, self healing and manifestation. When we work with mandala we may experience moments of clarity, harmony, peace and inner happiness.

In this workshop, I will lead you on the journey of self discovery and your connection to all that is. We will work using the Labyrinth as the basis for our creative mandala work. When we walk a labyrinth, it is a meditation, a path of prayer and an archetypal blueprint where psyche meets Spirit. The labyrinth only has one path that leads from the outer edge in a circuitous way to the centre. There are no tricks to it and no dead ends. I have found that working with drawing the labyrinth and using it within mandala, can be extraordinarily healing and revealing. Awareness is heightened, and things shift.

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. 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 is no need to be artistic to do this work, I will guide you all the way in this safe space.

There will be an hours break for lunch and please feel free to bring along a packed lunch or there are some very nice eateries within a short walking distance. We will then return to our mandalas and on completion, 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. Please bring along a yoga mat and blanket as the meditation will be lying down and will last approximately 45 minutes. This is such a deep and relaxing experience, a rest for the body and mind.

"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 litte about mandalas

The word mandala comes from Sanskrit means circle, center, 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.

There is parking onsite through the gate to the right of the main door.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring along some bottled water, a yoga mat and blanket and perhaps a nice comfy cushion for a relaxing deep Yoga Nidra at the end of the day.

If you would like to bring a packed lunch along, there is a small kitchen and a wonderful little courtyard to sit should the weather be kind! Otherwise there's plenty of little places to eat nearby.

Of course. Just call me on 087-6329125

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, just your name at the door will be fine....let's save some trees.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes, that's fine. If another person is going in your place, just tell them to mention the original name under which it was booked so that I can tick it off.
