Mandala As Healing

Using Sacred Symbols for Spiritual and Emotional Healing

Instructor: Judith Cornell

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Mandalas - Sanskrit for "circle" - have been used for millennia in cultures worldwide as a means toward spiritual growth, creativity, and physical and emotional healing. Today, they can still be used to center ourselves and create balance in our lives. This slow, deeply meditative process allows one to open to the moment and create personal sanctuary through art, thereby shifting our perspective and allowing transformation to occur. As form, pattern and image begin to emerge, we become involved in an enchanted, reciprocal dance with Creation itself.

This Transformational Art course is a powerful learn-at-home program that covers all aspects of a lifelong mandala practice that can heal the heart and evoke compassion within; and seeks to take you on an exploration of this intriguing wisdom practice for weaving the soul to a state of wholeness and connecting to the universe. 

The Mandala Healing Kit contains all of the materials you need to begin creating and using your own mandalas immediately. 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

1) Learn to make mandalas for "healing the heart" and opening compassion within; 

2) Create a "scale of light" - a luminous mandala to help reveal your true inner Self;

3) Learn the precise techniques for using sound and light to mend your emotions and express your hidden creative talents;

4) Learn to cultivate gratitude and unconditional love for yourself and others.
