In the hustle and bustle of modern day life, ritual offers us an opportunity to slow down, nourish our selves, and cultivate deeper meaning in our lives.
Nature is really the ideal place to cultivate a practice of ritual, because in nature we are away from the distractions and expectations of every day life, are in an environment that naturally encourages inner peace, inspiration and discovery of one’s authentic self, and the creative force of Spirit is intensely present and more easily perceived.
In this workshop, we will be focusing on the ritual creation of nature mandalas. Nature mandalas are circular, ephemeral (impermanent), artistic creations made from mindfully gathered pieces of nature. The ritual creation of nature mandalas acts as a gateway to experiencing one’s higher self through creative expression, encourages greater appreciation for nature, and a deeper relationship with the Earth. It is a simple practice for calming the mind, cultivating greater present moment awareness and gratitude, and adding joy and beauty into one’s life.
In this workshop, you will:
Learn about the components of ritual and how you can integrate ritual into your everyday life, so that you can come into deeper relationship with yourself, with nature, and with the mysteries of the Universe.
