On the first day of the Five Days of Mandala Magic, we began with an introduction to the mandala, and the significance of the circle as symbol. We drew various circles free hand. Some spiraled out, some spiraled in, some we continuously filled in, and we reflected on each circle as we drew it. Next we used the compass to draw a circle, and learned about the trinity. I do not have a very good compass and was getting very frustrated with it. Note to self...pick up new compass. We also had a brief introduction to Dr. Carl Jung and his mandala work.
On the fifth day of the Five Days of Mandala Magic, we were introduced to the Flower of Life symbol and Julie gifted us a Guide/Summary Book of the workshop with step by step instructions for each tutorial! So grateful to have so I can look back and remember all the steps and history.
*** Update Dec 2016- momma Deb is here visiting for Christmas and she surprised me with a little project. She brought four canvases, acrylic paints and brushes. We each created two pieces based on our teachings from the five days of Mandala. I think they turned out pretty well, and we had so much fun!
