Mandalas: Art as a Spiritual Path

With Paul Heussenstamm

September 29 - October 3, 2019

We’re sorry, this program is cancelled.

The practice of painting can awaken the soul’s capacity for creativity. Transform your everyday consciousness into the inner artist that lives within you. This program is designed to introduce the possibility that you are an artist, and that the artist’s path is one of joy, insight, and awareness. In just a few days, you can finish a colourful painting that reveals many of the deep inner patterns that connect you to your soul.

After seeing mandalas being created during Paul’s workshop, Eckhart Tolle commented, “These paintings carry a healing presence.” Deepak Chopra said, “These paintings are archetypal manifestations of higher consciousness.”

During the time we spend painting, the whole class is working together to quickly heighten their awareness as the creative forces come alive during the practice of painting. It’s amazing to feel your heart naturally and easily open as we create and laugh together. With the tools and techniques acquired here, you’ll continue to learn and practice at your own home or studio, and ultimately carry this with you for your entire life. Start painting and never stop painting, and your life will forever be enriched and transformed!

No painting experience necessary.
