Mandalas: Create a Cosmic Space
Art/Pathways (of Pathways to Housing Inc) Teaching and Exhibiting artist of An Inclusive World Juan Nolasco
Juan Nolasco will briefly discuss the history and various spiritual intentions on mandalas and participants can begin to make their own. From the time our ancestors began making cave drawings and setting up giant structures like Stonehenge they were expressing a connection to the earth and the cosmos. One of the most frequent symbols we find are circles and one reason for this is the sun, moon and planets are all spheres, which travel in a circular pattern so that it begins where it ends and becomes the symbol for eternity.
