with Daniel Docherty

Cost: £385

Mandalas, in essence, can be understood to be diagrams, patterns and pictures that are distillations of cosmic wisdom and harmony; repositories of archetypal intelligence.
Mandalas offer a potentially powerful means of deepening one’s spiritual and contemplative practice. This is especially true when they are constructed – using the traditional tools of compass and straightedge – in a considered and contemplative manner. Our primary focus will be on the construction and comprehension of Mandalas from the Western esoteric tradition; this will include the developing of a portfolio – an alchemical ‘tool-kit’ – of diagrams and sacred geometries with significant numerological and symbolic implications which will enable participants to develop their own meaningful and original mandalas.

During this week-long course, Daniel Docherty will guide participants through the construction of a number of mandalas from different traditions including mandalas that embody significant planetary patterns. We will explore their inherent symbolism and cosmic correspondences. Participants will also make their our own paints from various minerals such as malachite and azurite in order to colour and ensoul certain designs.
