The Mandala is a summary of Pattern, Colours, Texture, Vegetation and Shape.
In Sanskrit which is an ancient Indian language, Mandala means circle. Mandala’s are usually created in the form of a circle or a square
and contain geometric forms surrounding a central point. Sometimes Sacred Paintings with personal or Universal symbolism surround the Mandala or are contained within it.
Mandala’s represent the whole self and the
entire universe and are often used as visual
aids in meditation and religious ceremonies.
A Mandala is the story of a journey that we
can follow and interpret in order to connect
with our own serene inner centre. By
working with Mandala’s we will start to
perceive the mundane and seemingly
commonplace around us differently turning
everyday life into a journey to better
understanding of ourselves and allowing the
birth or rebirth of the inner child
(anima and animus) ie. returning to Joy!
