Celebrating fruitfulness in all forms; from the generous gifts of Mother Earth to qualities of abundance and well being that we may cultivate within ourselves and for others.
Giving attention to the fruits and berries so abundant at this time of year: their beautiful forms, fabulous flavours, nutritional and medicinal qualities; drawing on traditional herbalism and Ayurvedic wisdom as well as sharing our own experiences and recipes.
The geometry of nature, multi cultural mandala and the symbolic language of shapes helps to focus our observations and inspirations towards the mandala making; drawing geometry with compass and ruler and painting with watercolour, while taking time to relax and deepen our presence with guided meditation.
All in all a juicy, delightfully restorative day!
Suitable for all levels of ability.
The sacred art practice of Mandala (Sanskrit, meaning circle or wholeness) offers a visual pathway for coming into centre, while at the same time bringing peripheral elements into a feeling of inter-connected harmony. We do this through the resonance of sacred geometry (the universal language of shapes and symbols), creative use of light, dark and colour, and engaging the limitless power of our intent.
Drawing geometry and painting mandalas invites calm reflection, prayerful attention, a place to play, process, and become a vessel for divine flow.
It’s devotional, in the sense of acknowledging the divinity within all things and how the oneness expresses through us.
The design becomes imbued with the quality of our intention and attention, resulting in a kind of visual energy map, symbolic of our inner world.
Geometry provides a framework which allows us to set our sense of ‘self’ aside as we follow new routes and ancient pathways, pausing at intersections to feel our way. Each shape is a number, each number holds specific properties, every meeting an opportunity.
You’ll learn how to create patterns using the ancient tools of compass, straight edge and pencil. Then painting with watercolour onto paper.
