Know Yourself through the Art of Mandalas

January 12, 2019 , Saturday  1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Location:  TADA! Your Art Space:  459 Main Street, Delta, CO 81416


In Sanskrit Mandala literally means circle and center. Mandalas are used throughout many cultures to connect with the inner Self. Our first language is pictures. The saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words. We will use the sacred art of Mandalas to look at our inner self. We will ask a question and let the answer come in the form of a picture. This is a means to get unstuck and clearly see your vision, dream, goal. Creating a Mandala takes concentration and intent, not artistic ability. Give yourself a gift of time. Explore yourself through a picture.
Students will learn a little history of Mandalas. The process uses is Judith Cornell’s of drawing on black paper with white pencils. Students will propose a question to answer. Utilizing short meditations will learn to visualize the light from within and transfer it to paper. There will be a series of drawings to learn and practice the technique prior to drawing the answer to their question.

Cost of class: $20 per person.

Please call TADA! Your ART Space 970-209-5293 to reserve your place in the circle.

Jin Shin Acupressure for Practitioners

Jin Shin Acupressure, an Oriental healing art, helps us attain health and harmony in our high stress, high-tech society. This form of acupressure is very gentle and non-intrusive. The treatment process consists of softly holding acupoints to enable the body’s energy to flow to supporting function at the cellular level and within the body, mind, and spirit.
Participants learn how to balance and revitalize the body’s natural electromagnetic energy flows. Listening and observing the body, mind and emotions students become well versed in applying the art of acupressure healing and receive detailed workbooks for a lifetime of study and practice.
