      Now on this longest day, light triumphs, and yet begins the decline into the dark. (The Spiral Dance, HarperCollins, 1999, p. 205)

      Come explore the summer solstice, a peak moment that is both a celebration of the longest day of the year and a tipping point as the days get shorter and the nights get longer and we move toward the inevitable winter.


      In this brief but focused workshop, we will use mandala imagery, movement, and meditative practice to explore the meaning of this time of transtion and examine how we can use this practice with ourselves and others. "Mandala" is a Sanskrit word meaning circle. It is also understood to mean "container of essence" (Manda¬óessence, La¬ócontainer). Mandalas have traditionally been associated with spiritual practice and self-exploration. They are manifest universally across cultures in symbolic representation of the universe and the self.

      Previous art experience is not needed in order to benefit from this arts, healing, and creativity program. The workshop is designed for all ranges of artistic experience.
