Over the last several weeks, we have shared with you the different ways in which we plan to pamper you to prosperity at the Glow! retreat. We now want to tell you why we are going to paint mandalas.
First of all, it is going to be fun! If you have gone to a painting party at Pinot’s Palette, you know how fun it is to paint; especially with a glass of wine!
Secondly, there is a theory in the field of psychology that embraces the importance of mandalas. Carl Jung is credited with introducing the Eastern concept of the mandala to Western thought and believed mandalas represented the total personality– aka the Self. Jung noted that when a mandala image suddenly turned up in dreams or art, it was usually an indication of movement toward a new self-knowledge. He observed that his patients often spontaneously created circle drawings and had his own profound personal experience with mandala images. From 1916 through 1920, Jung created mandala paintings and sketches that he felt corresponded to his inner situation at the time, He believed that mandalas denoted a unification of opposites, served as expressions of the self, and represented the sum of who we are: mind, body and soul.
