Mandala Magic (Workshop)
withZef &Pam E. at Westboro
Sun, Sep 23, 2018 at 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Join Zef and Pam E. in a magical workshop using vinyasa yoga flow and the creation of a Mandala using natural materials.
The Mandala is a symmetrical design that is found in nature, architecture, traditions and other forms of art. Making a Mandala by using the abundance of natural materials supplied by Mother Nature reminds us of the infinite beauty that surrounds us in every moment and the inherent beauty of our everyday. Together, we will create and use the Mandala as a form of meditation, self-expression, and personal journey.
Come see what unfolds within the symmetry of our circle. No prior art experience is necessary just an open mind!
