What are Mandalas?

Mandala means sacred circle in Sanskrit. Mandalas are sacred pieces of art that in many cultures are used to represent the universe and other spiritual symbols. They are also used as tools to focus attention and for meditation.  Traditional mandalas are very structured and symmetrical. Freestyle spontaneous mandalas don’t require a lot of precise measuring. It’s a great way to relax, loosen up perfectionism, and get in touch with your intuition. 

In this course you will learn simple and fun ways to lay down repetitive patterns and shapes that can be adapted using a variety of media.

Because these mandalas are freestyle, they are a bit asymmetrical, imperfect, or a bit wonky, as I like to say. To me, this makes them the perfect tool to let go and just have fun!

The Many Benefits of Mandalas

Making mandalas is healing and helps you to process your emotions and release the stress of life.

Mandalas open the door to your creativity. You get to intuitively choose and play with lots of colors and shapes.

Mandalas keep you in the present moment. They slow you down and it becomes a form of mindfulness meditation. Mandalas help you access the flow state, which is a healing state where all your senses are being engaged and you lose track of time and leave all your worries behind.

Drawing mandalas helps you practice drawing and mark making. This can give you ideas to use in more advanced works of art. It allows you to take risks and play with color and pattern in unexpected ways.
