Sacred art cultivates inner silence and attunes one with energy and the essence of the divine aspect that is being evoked. These experiential workshops will introduce participants to the imagery of the chakras, our psychic energy centers, and the stage upon which the interaction between higher consciousness and desire gets played out. Shared from the Tantric tradition, these subtle centers of transformation will be experienced through painting and visualization.
Mavis will creatively guide you into the beautiful sacred art of chakra mandala painting. By working with specific colors and mantras, this meditative painting practice will connect you to the deeper energies of the planets and chakras, creating more harmony, peace and energy. You will learn:
These workshops are open to all art levels and are the perfect introduction to ancient modes of visual meditation.

Offered as 3 afternoon workshops (subject to change).
