Art of Mandala: Experiential mindfulness practice based on traditional Tibetan mandala meditation

Mandalas in therapy were first used in the West by Carl Jung, who found that the act of drawing mandalas had a calming and healing effect on patients while at the same time facilitating psychic integration (Henderson, 2005) The Foundation Art of Mandala workshop offered by Claudje Lecompte, Art Psychotherapist at The Open Studio, New Farm, looks at the traditional Tibetan mandala and some of the symbolism within the architecture or design of the mandala. The dominant elements and their meanings are translated and integrated into a model that can be used as a guided meditation or mindfulness practice, either as self-therapy or with an individual client, couple, family or group.
