Women's Mandala Art and Healing Weekend
........ , 2014..... Saturday 9:30 AM - Sunday 11:00 AM (working on date/place finalization)
"Changing the Mandala of Your Life"....... Come, rest, relax, & release your burdens through an artistic and healing experience. Take time out for yourself away from any hustle and bustle of the busy world outside. While walking in beautiful pristine woods or beside a creek, take time to get to know yourself anew and take care of yourself. Through a creative thinking process, guided meditations, journaling, and visual imagery, you will be exploring the mandala which represents your life. In doing so, you may find a place to make peace or find healing along the way. You may find that your course has changed or you wish to change it with new goals. You will find that healing and changing can be done with grace and ease. The "new mandala of your life" will be the new story of your life and the final art piece for the weekend.
The weekend will include
a meal on Saturday night, time to get into the creek, and a campfire with singing, sharing, & s'mores.
