Erik & Ann-Marie Grind

Mandala is an ancient symbol for wholeness and harmony.

This workshop invites you to explore your soul through mandala painting. The practice of painting is joyful, healing and meditative. Through guided meditations we'll contact our creative source, the inner artist that resides in us all. This week will give you the tools to use the mandala as a path of self-discovery and artistic development.

No further experience is necessary. All art supplies will be provided.

As part of the workshop experience you will complete a beautiful and colourful mandala of your own, reflecting your inner life, similar to those shown below which are examples of hand-painted mandalas.

When you book this course please will you send us a short introductory letter telling us about yourself. You can do this by email or by clicking the booking link above to use our online booking system where there is more information about writing your letter.
