“A mandala is the psychological expression of the totality of the self.”
A Mandala is an integrated structure organized around a unifying center. The circular design symbolizes the idea that life is never ending and everything is connected.
Experience deep inner and outer harmony, beginning with a guided meditation and then learn very simple and efficient methods of creating geometric harmony through the practice of mandala making.
Each of us has a dense nucleus of selfhood that is the “true self,” which cannot be known directly but, despite its obscurity, is the most important and generative part of our being. Because we can’t directly know this deep and mysterious part of ourselves, we develop an ego and mistakenly identify it as a “self.” The idea is that through regularly creating, painting, and contemplating mandalas, a person could create a dialogue between their “true self” and their “ego,” integrating the two over time.
