Mandala art therapy helps a person create their own sacred circle of healing. Mandala is a word of Sanskrit origin meaning “circle’. The artifacts of many religions often take a mandala form because the space is considered sacred. In this two session workshop for adults, people will utilize colors, designs, nature, and inspirational exercises to create their own mandala. This two-session workshop takes place on Tuesdays, August 9 and 16 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Lory’s Place, 445 Upton Drive, St. Joseph. Please register for this free activity by calling Lory’s Place at 269-983-2707.
