Storytelling Tools Woven in Living Colours

Through a variety of fun, creative activities participants learn about and practice storytelling,  explore colour meanings and play with a beautiful array of coloured yarns, weaving a simple piece of art.

Mandala Meditation & Mindfulness Workshop

Mandala is “sacred circle” in Sanskrit. The mandala is primarily used as a form of meditation to gain knowledge from within. Participants will learn about, and practice using, Mandalas for enjoyment and reflection. Includes a guided meditation with custom created aromatherapy oil.

A 2-hour adult focused Mandala workshop is an opportunity to connect with other community members and learn a personal meditative and reflective practice easily integrated into busy lives. Participants will get the tools to create their own Mandala and learn some of the meaning of various colours & essential oils as they explore freeing their creativity through centered reflection. It’s a fun energy-lifting practice that gives participants surprising boost.

Some colour meanings:
RED for strength, high energy and passion
PINK for love, intuition and the feminine
ORANGE for creativity, transformation, self-awareness and intuition
YELLOW for learning, wisdom, laughter and happiness
GREEN for physical healing, psychic ability, love of nature and caring
BLUE for emotional healing, inner peace and meditation
PURPLE for all things spiritual
WHITE for spiritual focus
BLACK for mystery, deep thinking and individuality
