Meditation & Mandala
– discovering joy through art
7 pm Fri 21 August – 2 pm Sun 23 August
Tara Hills Retreat Centre
Enjoy a deep focus, or concentration so deep that you lose track of time – welcome to the world of creating mandalas. Join highly acclaimed art teacher Cathy Gray as she guides you in creating your own mandala art works.
No prior art experience is necessary; all that you need is a sense of discovery and an interest to create. Along the way enjoy some guided meditations, nourishing food and a great weekend of time out. Discover the artist within!
In all retreats we explore practices that are useful in both the retreat situation and in everyday life. We aim to teach in a way that allows you to apply the experiences and understanding of meditation throughout your life.
