Mandala Coloring Club (Gr.1-5)
The word "Mandala" is Sanskrit for "whole world" or "healing circle." It's an intricate or simple design of colorful curved shapes with a prominent center. Mandalas were originally used in Eastern religions as symbols to help people meditate, and for protection and healing rituals. The practice is now popular in the Western world with psychologists. Coloring or painting mandalas provides comforting rhythmic activity; soothing relaxation and stress relief. It is felt that the beautiful drawings work on the subconscious to make you more centered and calm. We will colour in mandalas, and try to draw our own. Everybody welcome!
