A SUMMARY
Mandalas, in essence, can be understood to be diagrams, patterns and pictures that are distillations of cosmic wisdom and harmony; repositories of archetypal intelligence. In general, all mandalas have outer, inner and secret meaning. On the outer level they represent the world in its divine form; on the inner level, they represent a map by which the ordinary human mind is transformed into the enlightened mind; and on the secret level, they predict the primordially perfect balance of the subtle energies of the body and the clear light dimension of the mind. 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 own paints from various minerals such as malachite and azurite in order to colour and ensoul certain designs. -------------------------------------------- Participants requiring accommodation/meals may contact Emerson College directly for details and availability: Telephone: +44 (0)1342 822238 Web: http://www.emerson.org.uk/sacred-geometry Alternatively, for a list of local B&B/Hotel options and a wide range of Airbnb options are also available locally, please contact the mentor using the purple 'Contact Mentor' button.
