Mandala: Sacred Art & Movement Workshop with Katie Toohil and Ana Shoemaker



The mandala, Sanskrit for "circle or container of essence," has been used in various cultures throughout history as an aid to meditation, prayer, and journeying within. Mandala making can be a means to access this this joyful and transformative essence within. 

Join these two somatic movement facilitators for a day of ritual making. We will dance and explore the sacred mandala. 

We will create a group ritual wherein you come face to face with your own selves, your own movements, your own incredible, colorful, swirling being. What will you find when you can see yourself?

SEE the VIDEO Teaser!!!

Come create art and ceremony with your body, with organic and inorganic elements, and with food to express your creativity and to reconnect with your essential being. 

***Bring healthy food for our communal lunch ceremony. We will share a communal lunch together as a special part of the workshop.*****
