About the Event

We are so excited to host this new series that blends book study, artistic expression, community discussion, and yoga. 

Join Heidi McCanlies each month as she guides you thru an exploration of Susanne F. Fincher’s The Mandala Workbook: A Creative Guide for Self-Exploration, Balance, and Well-Being.

Sanskrit for “magic circle,” the mandala has been an expression of inner reality—for individuals, groups, and whole cultures. When you draw or paint a mandala of your own, you make a portrait of your unconscious at a particular moment in your life.  These images can provide astonishing insights into your own deepest truth. The Mandala Workbook offers a guide to mandala work, based on the Great Round—the twelve archetypal stages that represent a complete cycle of personal growth. Each stage offers a new way to connect with yourself and to discover the transformative powers of the mandala. Explore a full range of activities throughout the book and for each stage—including coloring, drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, yoga, and more. We will meet the first Saturday of each month to discuss, create, and share our mandalas as we move through the seasons & the thematic stages:

  • January- Resting in the Darkness
  • February- Floating into the Light
  • March- Turning toward the Journey 
  • April- Embracing the New
  • May- Claiming Selfhood
  • June- Igniting the Inner Fire
  • July- Squaring the Circle 
  • August- Functioning in the World
  • September- Reaping Rewards
  • October- Letting Go
  • November- Falling Apart
  • December- Opening to Grace
