  • Workshop: Mandalas and the Human Spirit, Part 1 @ Asia Society July 22, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm Asia Society Texas Center, 1370 Southmore Blvd, Houston, TX 77004, USA

    Join us for a creative exploration of these timeless sacred circles. Stemming from the Sanskrit word for circle, mandalas historically have played an important role in Indian and Tibetan Buddhist spiritual practice and have taken on new significance in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
    Through creative exercises, meditation practice, and conversation, we will explore the history and contemporary use of mandalas and some of the questions that arise from putting ancient spiritual tools to new purposes.
    Families are encouraged to attend together, with a separate and FREE hands-on experience available for children to learn about the colors, symbols, and numbers that are part of mandala creation before designing their own.
    For educators, this workshop will count as 1.5 Continuing Education (CE) hours.
    A corresponding workshop on Friday, July 28 at the Jung Center will examine Tibetan and psychological perspectives on mandalas and how they can be used as a tool for spiritual reflection and self-exploration. Receive a discount when you register for both courses in advance.

  • Workshop: Mandalas and the Human Spirit, Part 2 @ Jung Center July 28, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm The Jung Center, 5200 Montrose Blvd, Houston, TX 77006, USA

    Discover Tibetan and psychological perspectives on the mandala and learn how it can be a tool for spiritual reflection and self-exploration.
    Drawing from traditions across time and geography, Jung believed that depictions of sacred circles reflect the deep ordering structures of the human psyche, and that these circles appear in dreams and the imagination at times of transition and crisis. Tibetan Buddhism, which Jung described as including “the best and most significant mandalas,” understands mandalas as sacred spaces, externally and internally, that one can connect to through specific meditative practices.
    Our discussion of these different perspectives on sacred circles may provoke new insight among presenters and participants alike. What happens when a specific religious practice or symbol is used to make a psychological point? We will practice a Tibetan meditation related to mandalas and use our reflective process to create our own mandala, whether expressed on paper or visualized. No artistic skill or previous meditative experience necessary.
    For educators, this workshop will count as three Continuing Education (CE) hours.
    A corresponding workshop on Saturday, July 22 at Asia Society Texas Center will explore the history and contemporary use of mandalas. The July 22 workshop will have a separate, FREE hands-on experience available for children to learn about the colors, symbols, and numbers used in mandala creation.
