Cultivating Compassion Mandala Art Weekend

With Kathryn Costa

June 26 - 28, 2020

RETREAT BY INVITED PRESENTER

Creating art as a spiritual practice provides us with the gift of stepping out of ordinary time and into sacred space where we create for insight, self expression, and healing. Creating in community furthers this experience; each participant inspires and is inspired by  the other participants in a mutually supportive atmosphere.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mandala art projects in this program are centered around the intention of cultivating loving-kindness and compassion. Each activity includes a guided meditation that invites your attention to the present moment, opens a sacred conversation with your inner wise self, and gently awakens creative flow.

In our creative practice, we’ll work with the four elements, bringing a sweet vigilance to

  • air: observing our thoughts
  • water: feeling our emotions
  • earth: listening to our bodies
  • fire: awakening our creative spirit

The projects include creating heart chakra mandala art that opens the energy center of love, compassion, and acceptance; the Torus Yantra, a sacred symbol that reflects the expansive energy of the heart center; and a mandala with four gates to illustrate the four elements and four aspects of the self.

This program is for you if you want to give yourself a gift of creative expression that nurtures your body, mind, emotions, and spirit. You’ll go home with new skills, two-three pieces of unique mandala art, a greater awareness of self, and ideas for an on-going creative practice.

All materials and tools provided. You are welcome to bring your favorite supplies.
