Join us for a creative exploration of these timeless sacred circles. Stemming from the Sanskrit word for circle, mandalas historically have played an important role in Indian and Tibetan Buddhist spiritual practice and have taken on new significance in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. RELATED WORKSHOP On July 28, learn about Tibetan and psychological perspectives on the mandala and how it can be a tool for spiritual reflection and self-exploration. Through creative exercises, meditation practice, and conversation, we will explore the history and contemporary use of mandalas and some of the questions that arise from putting ancient spiritual tools to new purposes. Families are encouraged to attend together, with a separate and FREE hands-on experience available for children to learn about the colors, symbols, and numbers that are part of mandala creation before designing their own. For educators, this workshop will count as 1.5 Continuing Education (CE) hours. A corresponding workshop on Friday, July 28 at the Jung Center will examine Tibetan and psychological perspectives on mandalas and how they can be used as a tool for spiritual reflection and self-exploration. Receive a discount when you register for both courses in advance.
