Cost : $125 (all supplies included)
The Fourth Chakra, our Heart, moves love through your life. It’s an energy center that opens us up to compassion, deep caring, connection to other beings and self-love. Spiritually, a blocked fourth Chakra can cause a feeling of disconnection, a lack of empathy --the emotional repercussions include an inability to trust oneself or others. In this one-day workshop Mavis Gewant teaches participants to use sacred painting with mandalas. Through their sacred circular energy patterns, mandalas reflect our optimal inner nature. By utilizing the Vedic Square (an ancient number grid) we will create one of an infinite number of shapes and patterns to form a beautiful mandala in this spiritual art offering.
This meditative day of painting practice connects us to the subtler planetary energy governing the chakras and will strengthen our natural state of inner harmony and peace, We will work with specific colors and mantras related to the fourth Chakra, opening up and healing our Heart Chakra energy. This is a perfect day for both individuals and couples, adolescents and adults, to honor the spiritual aspects of Valentine’s Day. All supplies are included and participants will leave with paintings completed (or in progress.)
