Mettā: A Healing Arts Community
5118 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15224
Mandalas are archetypal patterns that radiate from a center. They can be found everywhere, in all cultures, and everywhere in nature. Mandalas are often used in ritual and ceremony because of their centering power; they create a sacred space that helps us focus on the core of reality. Within the circle, everything—the center & all that radiates from that center—is integrated, unified, whole. In the same moment, we experience the intricacies of relationship and the oneness of creation...Self and Universe. Mandalas can be meditative, relaxing, healing and playful.
Come explore mandalas in this afternoon workshop. Contemplate the mystery of beginnings and eternity, the way everything comes from no-thing, and how the infinite lives within the finite. We’ll talk, do a short guided meditatation, and create our own mandalas using a variety of materials. After, we’ll have a chance to reflect and share our experience. Join us on this fun and enriching journey!
