For thousands of years, Tantric seers have observed the powerful influence of the planets on the human experience. Indian astrology has long taught that while the energy released by the orbiting planets affects our lives, it is also an energy that can be directed and harnessed to improve our spiritual, mental, and physical well being.
Mandalas are sacred circular energy patterns that reflect our inner nature. Using an ancient number grid, the Vedic Square, a unique shape and pattern can be created to form a beautiful mandala based on your specific planets. By working with associated colors and mantras, this meditative painting practice will connect you to the deeper energies of the planets, creating more harmony, peace and energy.
Please note: It is important to arrive on time to each session to receive necessary instructions from Mavis. As this is a spiritual practice, it is asked that you paint in contemplative silence.
Offered as 4 afternoon workshops (subject to change).
