Everyone has a “seed dream” … whether you have already begun working on a special goal for this year or are simply desiring a change of some sort, this workshop will help you set the intention, take action, then nurture that potential throughout the year in a way that is fun, creative and incredibly affirming.
Sacred geometry (the universal symbols, patterns and proportions that are the language of the universe) is Nature’s own creation matrix and a powerful tool we can follow for “growing” our own “seed dreams” or initiating a change or transformation. The use of sacred geometry in a circular mandala format in combination with Nature’s own blueprint for growth is the key to this workshop, a far more powerful process than simply creating vision boards or making resolutions.
By making and energizing a known manifestation matrix, your soul is given the opportunity to express itself. What you create then acts like a mirror, allowing you to visually see what is rising up from your own subconscious and how and where you are open to input from the Universe or where you are blocked.
During the workshop you will be using a variety of art materials (coloured pencils, chalks, pastels, etc.) on coloured paper (all friendly and easy-to-use!) as you learn how to draw and embellish one of the most powerful patterns in sacred geometry – The Seed of Life. The result will be your very own and completely unique mandala design imbued with personal intentions. At the end of the session each participant will receive a “reading” of the shapes and colours used in their mandala and what they mean.
No artistic ability or experience is necessary as I will gently guide you step-by-step in bringing your intention mandala to life. Sharing this experience within a small group also provides valuable feedback from others in a safe and supportive environment as together we learn about the power of sacred geometry and how to work with energy – yours, Nature’s and the Universe’s.
NOTE: This workshop is Part 1 of my four part series on working with the Flower of Life, a powerful sacred geometry pattern that holds the secrets to manifestation.
Part 1 of this series, “The Seed of Life”, is offered early in February. Part 2, “The Egg of Life”, is offered in the springtime, Part 3, “The Flower of Life” near the Summer Solstice and Part 4, “The Fruit of Life” in the autumn. Each session is designed to work in sync with and reflect Nature’s rhythms and the cycle of the seasons.
Even if you only take Part 1 of the series you will have a finished mandala that will effectively radiate your intentions out to the universe during 2023. If the group is interested in going further, the next three sessions will take your intention setting to the next level by working actively throughout the year with what you have set in motion. You will gain a much deeper experience by receiving my ongoing guidance and feedback, plus the support and companionship of a like-minded group of fellow “gardeners” as the year unfolds.
In each workshop you will experience a beautiful guided meditation to “The Garden of Your Soul” that will help you nurture your goals, grow them and then harvest the wisdom of why they are (or aren’t!) coming to fruition the way you envisioned. At the same time, you will also be sharing your process in the supportive environment of like-minded souls as you learn the sequential stages to create one of the most powerful patterns in sacred geometry – The Flower of Life. This group sharing is a vital aspect that provides ongoing support and encouragement, a missing component in many other goal-setting processes.
The result at the end of the series of workshops will be your very own set of completely unique mandalas that are both a record of your journey and a blueprint for future successes and understanding.
I have been working with mandalas personally and professionally for over 20 years and am a Certified MARI Practitioner in mandala interpretation, a trained counsellor and a therapeutic art facilitator.
All sessions include art supplies, mandala making, ongoing support, companionship and mandala interpretation. Your fee also includes email support between sessions to help keep you on track.
This is an in-person workshop and limited to 7 participants. Please note that masks may be requested to be worn if Covid protocols are put in place again.
