The Mandala (Sanskrit for “circle” or “completion”) has a long history and is recognized for its deep spiritual meaning and representation of wholeness.

Many people and cultures have vouched for the mandala’s intrinsic meaning. Buddhists, Tibetans, and Hindus have all derived meaning from the mandala and its captivating beauty. Psychoanalyst Carl Jung has called it “a representation of the unconscious self.” The mandala is widely recognized as a meaningful reflection of its creator. Mandala art therapy & healing can be a great source of reflection on one’s soul.

Lotus Flower @ Artful Dreamers Studio
Oct 14 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Why Paint the Lotus Flower?

The lotus flower only grows in the murkiest of mud and yet the blooms are incredibly beautiful and water easily rolls off each petal.

We paint the lotus flower when we desire the energy of BLOOMING despite the challenges, or the mud, we may be facing.
Like the lotus we can rise through and above the mud to blossom in the sunshine.

We will paint a Lotus bringing in own color choice and style to the painting.

The Lotus is a powerful sacred symbol showing you that even out of the darkest muck, a Lotus can bloom.
Through life’s challenges, we are being prepared to bloom.

Create the JOY you want in your life by first creating it on canvas!
Bring your Lotus painting home to remind you of your JOY.

NO experience needed.
ALL Supplies provided.

Spirit Guide @ Artful Dreamers Studio
Oct 21 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Please bring loving kindness for fabulous YOU, a journal or pad, pen & any special things to add to your Spirit Doll. (crystals, small pictures, wishes)

* The SPIRIT GUIDE takes on meaning for each woman that creates one.
* It is like a personal guide that you create for yourself. It symbolizes and contains the personal characteristics you need in your life right now.
* The process involves some reflection, writing and then the creative part of making the doll.
* The outcome is truly amazing, self-affirming and empowering.

Process
* Define your purpose for the Spirit Guide…what does she represent?
* Her body can be made from wood, beads, objects from nature, fabric and more.
* You can attach photographs and/or poetry to the doll, or hide prayers, crystals & intentions within the doll. (bring what you would like)
*
MAGIC happens when we trust the process and let go of preconceived notions of how your doll should look and assist the form it wishes to take!

The making of the Spirit Guide is a deeply personal ritual to bring to form a part of yourself that is emerging from your unconscious.

We will:
* Work on turning off the inner critic
* Relax and “allow” it to come .
