THIS EVENT HAS NOW SOLD OUT January is the perfect time to reflect on the past year and set a vision for the year to come.
Life is a series of cycles. When you arrive at the threshold that leads you from one cycle to the next, such as a New Year, do you want to simply transition from the old into the new, or will you choose a conscious transformation?
Working artistically with the mandala, you will be guided through a series of exercises to release that which you no longer wish to carry from 2016, followed by the opportunity to create your personal unique vision for 2017. Mandalas are a powerful tool to help us experience and reflect on the essence of who we are in the here and now. C.G. Jung (1875–1961) believed this sacred circle was one of the most powerful conscious bringing interventions for both soothing the soul and meeting one’s self, saying that “we paint the images our soul needs to see”.
Creating a mandala can bring together the dispersed pieces of ourselves and help us find wholeness.
There will also be an opportunity during the workshop to walk a labyrinth, a simple form of walking meditation or prayer. No experience of mandalas or labyrinths are necessary. The workshop is led by Sarah Bellorini, a creative leadership coach & therapeutic arts practitioner. The labyrinth walk is hosted by Jane Bartlett, an ordinand (trainee priest) and Veriditas trained Labyrinth Facilitator. Sarah’s work includes Transformational Energy Leadership™ coaching. She holds an internationally accredited professional coaching qualification, is a member of both the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and is in her final year of a Transpersonal Arts in Therapy MA level and recently received a Distinction for her dissertation: A Cycle of Conscious Transformation.
