Sacred Expressions: The Healing Art of Mandala Making
Rev. Paula Vukmanic
Saturday, November 13, 2021 9:00am to Noon
The word mandala is from Sanskrit and means circle. A circle is a symbol of wholeness. The psychologist Carl G. Jung created one each morning “somehow corresponding to his inner situation at the time”. For Jung, “the mandala really is Formation, Transformation, Eternal Mind’s eternal recreation.” For me, mandala making has become a centering, healing experience of unfolding energies, a witness of a journey into the center of who I am. I invite the same for you. Our workshop will engage the experience of the mandala with a variety of mediums and papers. I invite you to bring your own art materials if you so wish. Our workshop will focus on meditative moments, creating our mandalas and learning some of the history of the mandala and current mandala projects.
Come and experience this consecrated activity, in the Unity and Wholeness of God, embodied within us.
The Rev. Paula recently retired as Rector of St Francis Episcopal Church in Palos Verdes Estates. In this new season, Paula is reengaging mandala making as part of her spiritual practice and ministry. She is also a professional artist and has exhibited in galleries for years. Paula has given workshops on the mandala and taught plein aire painting. Paula has taught high school, provided pastoral care, led a parish as an Espicopal priest and given many retreats.
