Meditative Mandala Workshop - The Details

In this spiritual art workshop we will come together to create a beautiful and unique mandala painting together. We will be meditating together in our sacred space at various times throughout the day to connect in with our inner self. Throughout the day we will add layers to our painting – working in 8 stages –

  1. Connecting to our inner sense of freedom and beginning the process by layering on colour intuitively to get started.
  2. Connecting to the flow of life as we add spirals and circles to our artwork – finding our centre in the midst of chaos.
  3. Grounding our intention by tuning in to the words we want to add to our mandala – these will fade into the background of the mandala as we continue to layer on paint and beautiful intention.
  4. Getting playful – we will add splashes of fluid colour and water to reconnect with the aspect of feeling and sensing rather than doing after the earthiness of stage 3.
  5. We will be begin to create the form and outline of the mandala and will observe our inner critic with love and kindness at this stage of the process. This part is a test of our inner judgement and we learn to become aware of this and move on with grace.
  6. Colouring and blending – at this stage we begin to allow the colours to take form within the outline of the mandala. We explore blending colours and using a light touch to get translucent effects in our piece.
  7. We will connect in with the vibration of energy around us and add contrast to our piece using light and dark to create definition and areas of highlights. The mandala begins to come to life.
  8. In our final stage we add the finishing touches using fingers, brushes or whatever you like to add the final detail to your unique meditative mandala.
